Quote: "Choucas"Hello, •
First of all, I don't want to take a position on this 'drama'. I don't know what happened, and actually I don't care who's right or not. That's not my business. •
Whatever, the angry people are often the ones who are speaking louder, they said, so maybe happy people should express their opinions as well. I'm posting this message to say that I've already dealt with Marcos, and it was a real pleasure. He kept his word, communication was friendly and I cannot point a single problem. •
That's all, folks, have a nice day. I have dealt with Grinya, he is great as well! I had had no problems with any of my communications with him. Yay for positivity!

Swaps and trades
Hey everyone •
Happy New Years! Anyone up for some swaps? US swaps preferred due to shipping costs
I’m up for a swap if you see anything on my list of interest!

I actually really enjoy the sales posts and have bought some coins that I have enjoyed quite a bit. I think that moderation of the sales is key, I didn’t have a problem with Andy289 selling but agree that rules should be enforced equally across all members. I also support the recent sales rules changes.
Having not done the exchange in previous years I would be excited to participate this year!

open for more swaps if anyone wants!
I began collecting mostly US coins, then expanded to any world coin I didn't have by KM#. I have scaled back on that a bit, although I still buy the occasional US coin and will trade for world coins I don't have, but most of my purchasing has progressed to medieval coinage, some Roman coins, and coins from countries/issuers that I do not have yet (which happens to be mostly medieval and older coins). The medieval coins are absolutely fascinating to me. Collect what you like!
Coin identifications and valuations
Hmmm looks interesting. Do you combine shipping?
Still open for swaps if anyone is interested!

Quote: "cro321"As far as I know the system uses the median value, not the average. •
Interesting. I had no idea in English mode, median and mean are all together grouped as average. Seems a bit confusing to me but it's probably just a language barrier. But I guess I'm not the only one since I remember the discussion on the subject when values were first introduced and I remember other members also making a difference between average and median. Thanks for clearing that up. The mean is the average, the median is the number in the middle when the numbers are arranged from smallest to largest, not the average. Mean, median, and mode are not the same in the English language.
Thanks everyone. I have had swaps with my home address as well, I just have moved and am considering the PO Box for extra security, but the cost may not be worth it. I appreciate the viewpoints from you all as I consider. Although I think my wife would prefer a PO Box so that’s probably what I’ll end up doing haha
Yes please! Should have added this one into the last lot haha
Would you want to sell or just exchange? If sell what price?
I live in Utah currently and love it! You are right, there are few reasons to leave the mountain west! Your rig you take to Moab (from the other thread) looks awesome! I plan to go there with my mountain bike this summer and hit some of the epic trails in the area. We go to Idaho and Wyoming frequently and have some trips planned there for the summer. •
Not sure how close you are to Texas but I did live in Texas for a while and I do miss some Texas BBQ and blue bell ice cream mmmmmmmmm
I have been doing a lot of grilling lately, chicken drumsticks, bratwurst, pork kebabs, smoking some homemade jerky, chicken breast, ribs, flank steak,etc. today some chicken I think. •
I love fish and tried catfish a few times but never could get the recipe just right.

Quote Guys, try doing what I do when the forum boils over; I take a break from it and spend a day or two building the Numista catalogue. It's constructive, and appreciated by community members whatever their creed far more than typing five-paragraph lectures on your grievances and grandstanding on whom you'd like to have banned. That's why I've done minimal commenting on threads like this one in the past few days. •
Report the offending post(s), roll your eyes and move on. Otherwise you're being no less of a "moral police". Maybe even consider it a form of occupational therapy; the point is if one's contributing to the catalogue, they'll post less which in turn ruffles less feathers. •
I think it's worth resurrecting this thread and the first post as a little reminder, since some posters seem to have forgotten the message it was supposed [...]
Quote: "auctionking65"Free discussion......Chitchat about anything..!!!!!!! NOT just damn Coins !!!! •
Most of the topics in this section of the forum belong into other parts of the Forum. •
Do any of you have anything to say about other things than coins ? Used to, back in the day, this was a pretty lively part of the forum...…..it's kind of a drag now, dominated by a few and pretty much always about the same stuff..... •
You coin nerds (me included) ever talk about stuff like Movies, Cars, Motorcycles, Pets, Sports, Food from around the world, Beer, Whiskey, Guns, Vacations, Kids, Work, Countries, History, Tools etc etc •
Well, I love to talk about politics and how the world regime sucks for the most part, but I understand to stay away from that..... •
Maybe all of you are afraid of the mighty moderators or being so damn PC all the time that it hurts. Maybe you talk on other forums about[...]
I also collect books, and Lego, but have multiple collections I started but then lost interest including various antiques, stamps, and a few collectible card games. Plus all those baseball cards I bought in grade school, some with the extra surprise of a rock hard stick of gum!
I think memes are great, and would love to see more.

coconut for scale •
i emptied it now and it contained 1 and 2 cent coins •
if you emptied it out the current answer would be zero :)
Fun to see young collectors on here. I just finished my education recently as well.
Swaps and trades
I typically only swap low-ish value coins so paying more for shipping overseas does not typically make sense
How much do you want for the average coin in these lots?
Some cool coins on this thread, following and hopefully I will get around to posting soon.
Got a swap request from him and turned it down. I have not been around long enough to see the same person come back as a different profile, thanks for the heads up!
Hmm I had been using 300 countries as one of my goals. Now I am not sure...a certain number of sections and countries? What will other people do?
So sorry to hear this Phil, you and your family continue to have our prayers.

you always post very interesting coins, where do you get them if I may ask?
Japan, Philippines, Spain
My first love is US coins. I would love to delve more into the early commemoratives and gold coins
who knew so many 8s was so lucky! That guy's description of the coin was hilarious
Another member has expressed interest if he passes I'll let you know! •
Quote: "neilithic"It's not a very useful tool, the only thing it's really useful for is to see what coins are likely to be popular to put in your swap list. I think a while ago Phil suggested that we switch to the universal rarity scale, which sounded quite good to me •
https://www.providentmetals.com/knowledge-center/collectible-coins/universal-rarity-scale.htmlthat scale would be interesting to see implemented!
2 for me please. Any numbers will do. Money being sent now
I'll take it. PM me if still available to arrange! Thanks!
for $3 you can add it to my total •
I'll take this one too. PM me if the ones I have selected are still available. I can pay via pay pal.
How much are you selling it for?
I bought 4 lots and am enjoying sorting through them today, thanks!
Bid on a few and lost! Post if you are going to sell more!
Anyone have a good resource on Romanian coins?
I am new to the site, but started coin collecting when I was in Boy Scouts maybe around 12 years old when my grandfather gave me some for the merit badge. I stopped for a while during my late teens and early twenties but am back at it now and loving it!
