Coinman1, a proof is NOT a grade but a finish. I've got a few proofs who are VF at most. After treated badly the grade can diminish but a proof coin always stays a proof coin, no matter the grade.

The best way to determine whether it's low or high relief: look at the horse. The high relief version has a horse with few details in the mane and tail hairs, like you can see in the picture below: • It's a bit contradictory: the high relief version has low details, the low relief version has more details. I would have expected it the other way around. • The best website for Venezuelan coins and varieties is this one: http://www.numismatica.info.ve/en/coins/mv.htm

FALSE ACCUSATION: "THIS MEMBER HAS BEEN DETECTED BY NUMISTA MODERATORS FOR SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU STILL WANT TO SWAP WITH HIM."
Posté le : 10-08-2019, 19h21 dans Free discussion

Don't worry about your reputation. Your average rating is 10.0/10. That's where potential swappers look at and what determines your reputation. I see the problem is solved in the mean time. Mistakes happen and unfortunately you were the victim of it. I don't know how long this alert appeared on your account and I suppose you won't forget it quickly but others will. In fact, most of the members didn't even see the alert (me included). So please don't worry about your reputation and don't let this unfortunate event effect your swapping experience.

Posté le : 09-08-2019, 16h39 dans Numismatic questions

Good that you point this out. The mintage of 1,000,000 is a mistake in our catalogue. Proof coins are always struck in low mintages. These 1997 coins were in sets only so they did not circulate. • The mintage of 1,000,000 is for the smaller 1997 KM# 45.2.2: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces12349.html

Citation: "Camerinvs"In Krause ... they obviously inverted the pictures. • ​ • ​They don't say anything about the reverse, but it is clear there's a difference. Beside the differences in CENTAVOS, you'll note in your two coins that the space between the 5 and the 0 is different, being narrower in the bottom picture. • ​Yes, the pictures in Krause or wrong. The pictures for the fine lettering are with the bold lettering and vice versa. • And to be honest, I don't see a difference on the obverse, all the differences are on the reverse: • 1994 fine 1994 bold • Like Camerinvs said, there is a difference in the distance between 5 and 0, but also: • - the angle in the middle part of the 5 (the yellow lines) • - the length of the lower part of the 5 (the green arrows) • - the angle of the upper part of the 5: the vertical line and the horizontal line of the top of the 5 make a perfect 90° angle for the bold[...]

50 Centavos Nicaragua
Posté le : 23-07-2019, 19h25 dans Numismatic questions

Good question! • The second coin is not (yet) in Krause edition 2019, nor in edition 2017, 2015, 2013 and 2010. So I wonder where the information comes from this is a copper-nickel coin? And secondly, when the coin isn't in Krause how can it have a KM# number assigned to it? • Schön says there is no difference in metal content between these coins (which explains why they are both magnetic). The only difference between these coins is the Mint who struck them (according to Schön of course).

Citation: "pnightingale"The Cullion Island and Columbia issues are a great place to begin as these are widely available and not that expensive. They are usually heavily circulated. Show me a Lazeretto token I don't have and I'm filled with childlike wonder. • ​ • ​If anyone has any of these tokens to trade then I'm your man. In the words of that famous numismatist Tyrion Lannister - "Whatever their price, I'll beat it." • ​Unfortunately Phil is right. The Culion Island coins are a bit better: • But I have several Colombia Lazareto coins and these are all F at best. • However Phil, I have one which is not in your collection (if your collection on Numista is up to date), the 50 centavos 1928RH so be filled with childlike wonder: • Unfortunately, I only have this coin once so a trade isn't possible. In the words of a non-famous numismatist: "Whatever your price is, it's not enough".

Don't forget there is always a margin when producing coins, at least for non-precious metals. So the deviation in weight between your coins and Newtony's coins is very normal. That doesn't necessarily mean the weights in Numista aren't wrong but to be sure your sample size has to be big enough. So you have to weigh a lot of coins and the average weight must give a clear difference with the Numista numbers. Only then you can change it with certainty. • Another example: https://en.numista.com/forum/topic48740.html. Look about halfway this topic (Posted: 28-Mar-2016, 02:05AM ) and you'll find a list of measurements of a Sweden 5 Kronor. The difference there between the lowest and highest weight is also almost 0.3 gr.

Cayman Islands Gold Queens coin - advice please!
Posté le : 11-04-2019, 11h19 dans Numismatic questions

Citation: "broch587" I am conscious of the coins not being 100% gold • ​Yes, this series has only a gold content of .500, but to be honest your coin doesn't look like a gold coin at all, not even a .500 gold coin. Can you provide pictures of the reverse too, and if possible from all six coins of this series? • It's a pity, it's a nice coin but that green stuff makes it very ugly now. I strongly advice to get it out of the maroon board. As you can see, that green stuff always start on the rim, where the coin makes contact with the board. Your 2x2's are much safer.

Of course you typed "Sri Lanka 1978" in the description (so not with the issuers, where "Sri Lanka" belongs), so the search is looking for the individual words "Sri" "Lanka" and "1978". That Nepalese coin gives a match for "Sri" (a symbol above the square between the crescent and the sun on the obverse) and for "1978", but there is nowhere "Lanka" in the description, so I don't know why the search find this coin. • But it's logical you don't find any coins from Sri Lanka in your search, bec[...]

Thanks Ole. • It was already on the forum on June last year: https://en.numista.com/forum/topic70737.html • But that warning came too late too back then since I've already bought the two ship coins before that time, thinking these were the real deal. • Hopefully Ole's warning will be in time for some other members. It's not always easy anymore to know if new coins are fantasy or legal tender.

Some types are random, some types only have one position and some types have both positions but in all kinds of ratios, going from 98:2 to 55:45. Some types even have differences depending on the date: some dates all have the same position while other dates have both positions, random or not.

Sometimes you just have to be lucky. • British Honduras coins aren't expensive, but they aren't easy to find (except on eBay of course where they ask ridiculous prices). In about 50 years of collecting, I've only found 22 different coins, and 4 doubles (a few more doubles because I've already swapped some since I joined Numista, so maybe I had about 8 or 10 doubles in total). But last week I've found on a coin fair two batches of coins from British Honduras. The two packages together consisted of 341 coins, among them 40 different ones. These batches boosted my British Honduras collection from 22 different coins and 4 doubles to 50 different coins and 317 doubles (37 different). • Here some ridiculous prices on eBay: • https://www.befr.ebay.be/itm/British-Honduras-Cent-1942-Bronze-World-Coin-now-Belize-RARE-mintage-50-000-a/292552349659?hash=item441d7a97db:g:S~kAAOSw-YZa7v-l • https://www.befr.ebay.be/itm/British-Honduras-1-Cent-1943-Bronze-World-Coin-KM21-R[...]

In Belgium there are 23 official ECU types (34 dates), 22 of these (33 dates) are in Krause, 19 types (30 dates) are in our catalogue in the **Exonumia** sector. They were legal tender coins so they shouldn't be in the **Exonumia** sector. • The ECU coins are trade coinage. 16 types are gold, 7 are silver. 32 dates have a low mintage between 1,000 and 50,000. 1 gold coin has a mintage of 1,502,000 and 1 silver coin has a mintage of 1,000,000. 29 dates are Proof coins, so these certainly didn't circulate, but to my knowledge none of the others circulate either.

[résolu] New animal tags required!
Posté le : 28-08-2018, 14h17 dans Numista catalogue

Name any animal and there probably is a coin (or more) where that animal is depicted on. So probably make a tag for every existing animal is not practical, but as Oleg says, we certainly need a lot more than now. Besides the panda and unicorn, I most certainly think about the lion, but also the turtle, the pig and many others. • We also need a category tag "animal" for all the animals which haven't a specific tag. The moment a category gets a division, the category tag isn't usable any more. But for all those divisions which haven't a specific tag yet, we need that category tag. For instance, the moment the category "sport" got "soccer" as division (and for now, the only division in that category) we can't tag any coin with a "sport" theme other than "soccer" because the category tag "sport" is not selectable. Another example, there are a lot of plants which aren't a flower of a tree, but the category tag "plant&q[...]

Posté le : 20-08-2018, 12h48 dans Coin identifications and valuations

The difference is way too little, especially for the first coin. • The second coin is definitely slightly off centre, but again way too little to keep it. But that's of course my opinion. I collect varieties and errors too, although the last category not fanatically. For me, the error must be big enough and this one isn't. Maybe a fanatic error collector would keep the coin, but even for them I have my doubts because the error is so small. • But lets hear how a real error collector thinks about it.

Nice spotted. • But differences between different dates don't always get a new sub-number. For some countries they do (f.i. Guatemala is a very known example), for some countries they don't. Don't ask me why. • And as long as those differences are not for the same date they are not variants in the real sense. • Besides, there are even more differences between the dates of that type as you can see here on the great site of our member Cobra: http://monnaiesetvarietes.esy.es/FICHES/Liban/LIBAN%2050%20Piastres%20KM%2028%201%20-%20KM%2028.2%20.pdf • On that page you can also see the difference between KM# 28.1 and KM# 28.2

The 1968 without JAS is easy to find so I also think the prices for these two coins are switched. • @Frenchlover: I'm not so sure your second coin (without "Pareja") is effectively without "Pareja": • I can't effectively read "Pareja" but within the red oval is something that looks very much like it: the same amount of characters and at the same place where "Pareja" should be. And the condition of the coin isn't as good as the other one. I guess the letters "Pareja" are a bit worn away.

Agreed. If someone posted an ugly coin from a certain type, no one could ever post this type again, even if you have a very beautiful one. That doesn't seem fair. • I think it's enough (and much easier to check for you Oleg) if only the owner of a winning coin can't put that same coin in competition again.

Why do some monarchs who are the first of their name have a regnal number, but others don't?
Posté le : 16-08-2018, 7h07 dans Numismatic questions

Citation: "CassTaylor"​Just something I noticed while going through the records of my collection, and seeing how some European monarchs who are the first of their name (e.g. Wilhelmina (Netherlands), George I (Hanover/Britain), Napoleon I (France/Italy), Wilhelm I (Prussia/Germany) etc.) don't have a regnal number on their coinage, whereas others (e.g, Albert I (Belgium), Luis I (Portugal), Franz Joseph I (Austria/Austria-Hungary) etc.) do? • ​Where do you see a regnal number on the coinage of Albert I (Belgium)? There isn't a single coin that bears his name with a regnal number.

Welcome to Numista. • Unfortunately, there is no weight for this coin in our catalogue, nor in Funck. I don't have the exact coin but your coin has a diameter of 28 mm and I have another aluminium notgeld coin from Hamburg with a comparable diameter of 26.9 mm. That one weighs 1,7 g so your coin is probably a little bit heavier. So no need for panicking, these are just very light coins.

Matte or Special Uncirculated?
Posté le : 11-08-2018, 10h47 dans Coin identifications and valuations

It looks like matte but it's difficult to see on a picture. It shouldn't be a problem to see the difference when you have the coin in hand. A Special Uncirculated coin is very shiny (not mirror like though!) and a matte coin isn't shiny at all. But sometimes, over the years, shiny coins can have a haze over them. It looks like the part under the twig could be shiny. If you are sure there is no haze on your coin then it's definitely matte. • I'll try to make a picture of the same coin in Special Uncirculated and Matte.

Our catalogue and Krause specifically say the 1 centavo coins minted in Culiacan have a smooth edge. So maybe all the other mints have a reeded edge. My 1 centavo 1889 from Mexico City also has a reeded edge.

Posté le : 02-07-2018, 9h47 dans Coin identifications and valuations

In earlier editions of Krause (1999) the description is as follows: • which is: • It's a bit of a mystery: • - There is no 1987FM "Pineapple" coin in Krause. • - There is no FM mintmark on the 1987 "Map of the islands" coin in Krause. • - Very strange the Royal Mint in London would struck a coin with the private Franklin Mint FM mintmark like Colnect says. • - Maybe your coin is a mule with a KM# 92 obverse and a KM# 74 reverse. Hard to believe because you would expect proof coins with such a low mintage to be controlled each and every one of them. • Maybe the explanation is simple and it's another mistake in Krause and there is also a 1987FM "Pineapple" and even a 1988 like Colnect says.

Hong Kong 50c 1990 - what's the correct mintage ?
Posté le : 30-06-2018, 13h27 dans Coin identifications and valuations

I think it's a mistake Krause made in the older editions. Somewhere between 1999 and 2006 Krause changed the way they show mintages. • This is how they did it in 1999 (and earlier): • So the Hong Kong 50 cent was like this: • The mintage for 1990 was written as 27,000 • If it really was 27,000 pieces it would have been written at that time as .027 (like the 50 cents 1988) so I guess they made a mistake and 27,000 had to be written as 27.000 • After changing the way they show mintages they took over the previous comma and in the newer edition it became: •

I don't think it's a fake, at least not in the real sense. It's obvious it wasn't the intention to make a copy of a coin as accurate as possible. Hence the nonsense legend on the reverse and the strange "date". That's why I think the "date" 7G7S is not a date but "7 G(ulden) 7 S(tuiver)". Just a thought.

On July 1, 2017 the metal composition of the 5 cents changed into a steel core with a copper overlay and the 10 cents and 25 cents changed into a steel core with a copper-nickel overlay, which makes all these coins magnetic. • Because of the metal composition change, this coin will have a new KM number. Although it's likely to be KM# 30a, 31a and 32a only Krause can assign a KM# number so we have to wait till Krause officially assigns this number to the coin and unfortunately this could take a few more years. • Since this change took place in the middle of the year it's likely the 2017 coins exist in old and new metal composition, so be aware to tick the right entry when adding a 2017 coin, especially since there are several other entries between the old ones and the new ones. And those who already added a 2017 coin, please check if it's non-magnetic or magnetic. • https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces140714.html • https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces14[...]

Brazil: 5 centavos km587.1 / km587.2 / km587.3?
Posté le : 06-04-2018, 14h05 dans Numismatic questions

Yes, they are. And those wavy lines are not only on the 5 centavos coins but on most (or even all) the coin types with that same obverse, although in Krause it's only mentioned for the 5 centavos. • Ole, beware with that KM# 587.3: ONLY Krause-Mishler can give KM# numbers. That's exactly the strength of KM# numbers. Wherever you are in the world, whatever website you're watching, the same KM# number is always the same coin. If individuals are giving KM# numbers as well, it will start confusion and chaos.

Difficult to say. All the aluminium coins have coin alignment, all the gold coins have medal alignment.

So in 1990 UK changed the face value for 1 crown coins from 25 pence to 5 pounds. • All Isle of Man crowns however still have a face value of 25 pence, confirmed by the manager of the Isle of Man Bank. • But what about the Crowns of Ascension Island? • In our catalogue the face value of the new 1 Crown coins (since 2013) have a face value of 5 Pounds. • Krause gives these 1 Crown coins a face value of 50 Pence. • Chiefa coins (http://www.chiefacoins.com/Database/Countries/Ascension_Island.htm) says the face value of these coins is still 25 Pence, like the older 1 Crown coins.

France: 1 franc 1938, open and closed "8"
Posté le : 05-03-2018, 14h40 dans Numismatic questions

To be honest, I don't even see the "half open" in the first picture, to me it looks closed everywhere. • And it can't be it has anything to do with extra alloy filling the holes or not, because extra alloy anywhere is always an error, not a variety. • So my question is not how an "open 8" looks like, but how a "half open 8" is supposed to look like. Why is the first picture called a "half open 8"? Can someone point me out the differences with a normal 8? • By the way, the French catalogue by Victor Gadoury (the Gadoury catalogue is for France what the Spink catalogue is for the United Kingdom) doesn't mention a "half open 8" variety for this type. • There are heaps of varieties in the Gadoury, but none for this type, so no "half open 8" but also no "small 3" for 1933 and no "narrow date letters" for the 1934.

Yes, at a certain moment Guatemala had the habit of making minor changes for several years within the same type. • Other countries also make minor changes within the same type (like the Honduras 10 centavos for instance) but not every minor change gets a different KM# sub number like for the coins of Guatemala. • That's why you can only compare coins with the same date to see if there might be any errors or varieties. • By the way: welcome to Numista.

I've found an Egypt, 50 piastres 2007 (https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces9329.html), but it's definitely not brass plated: • It's magnetic and the weight is 6.1 gr. in stead of 6.5 gr. Could it be an error: only the steel core and no brass plating? Or is it post mint damage and someone removed the brass plating? Is it that easy to remove brass plating? There isn't any trace of brass plating, not even on the reeded edge. • The face value of this coin is around 0.02 euro, I think that rules out being a fake.

Coin flips. Glue or staple?
Posté le : 10-02-2018, 14h25 dans Numismatic questions

I don't like staples either, but fortunately, you don't have to glue your flips. There are two kind of flips, the ones you have to staple and the self adhesive ones, so no glue required. The self adhesive ones cost a bit more, but you don't have to worry about damaging your plastic coin pages and there are no ugly staples on your flip. • Of course they have some disadvantages too and not only the higher price. I always compare my new coins with the ones in my collection and exchange the coin if I find a better one. With stapled flips you only have to remove one or two staples and exchange the coin using the same flip. With self adhesive flips you always have to take a new flip, they are not reusable.

The blunt 5's in B and C are correct. • Here are the 5's from A and the first one of B: • The one from B is definitely blunt 5, like you thought too. • For A I would say: the second one definitely blunt, the third one pointed but the top isn't too clear on the picture to be 100 % sure. • And the first one: • The top of the 5 isn't clear either. You can see an elevation between the green arrows. I don't know what it is, but it looks like it isn't a part of the 5. In that case, the top of the 5 isn't visible which makes it very hard to say if it's blunt or pointed.

Congo Democratic Republic, 10 Francs 1965, variety
Posté le : 27-01-2018, 16h42 dans Numista catalogue

Variety RC/1a (RC/1 stands for Republiek Congo, coin # 1 in the Morin catalogue): • Difference between RC/1 and RC/1a (RC/1 is upper picture, RC/1a is lower picture): • - Big opening in "A" (easiest way to determine the difference) for RC/1 • - Leg of "X" from under left till top right is thin for RC/1 • - Shape of "P" is different, hence the big distance between "P" and "A" for RC/1 (the blue arrows are identical) • Although the catalogue only mentions a difference in the word "PAIX", there is also a difference in "JUSTICE" (RC/1 is upper picture, RC/1a is lower picture): • - Thick "C" with oval inner space for RC/1 (easiest way to determine the difference) • - The bottom of the "U" is more angular for RC/1, rounder for RC/1a • - The shape of the "S" is more angular for RC/1 and the distance between "U" and "S[...]

Cyprus: currencies
Posté le : 24-01-2018, 17h30 dans Numista catalogue

Citation: "Oklahoman"​If I stepped on toes I apologize.​If you think you stepped on my toes, don't apologize because you didn't. There is nothing wrong with a healthy discussion between opinions. But if I think I'm right, I don't give up easily and I will use all the arguments I can think of to convince my opponent. So don't worry, my perseverance has nothing to do at all with feeling stepped on my toes. • But like you said, the goal should be ease of use. And in my opinion it's much easier to find a coin when the same coins are grouped together. Click on the right currency and you'll find the coins you look for immediately. If you merge the mil coins and the cent coins, it will take longer to find it, especially because they changed from 1000 = 1 to 100 = 1. I challenge you: how long will it take for a novice collector, and how much will he scroll to find a Cyprus 1/2 cent between those mixed mils and cents coins? A novice collector doesn't know there are 1000 mils i[...]

Adding new diemark variations for the Isle of Man
Posté le : 18-01-2018, 19h02 dans Numista catalogue

Citation: "khungerald"​It's never been clear to me why wishing to add a new date or die mark to a coin already listed has to go through the forum, rather than simply be sent in as a modification ... after all, nothing gets confirmed until it has passed through the moderator / referee for a particular country. The wording is that all dates have been checked and the list verified as complete .... but often this is not the case. • ​Totally agree. I can't understand either why I come across following message much too much: "The list of years is complete and has been verified. Most requests to add new year entries are sent for the wrong coin type. If you are sure you own this coin with a date that is not listed here, you can ask to have it added through the forum and include a picture of your coin in your message." • I'm really wondering who checked and verified it as complete, because I also noticed it's often not complete (or mistakes in it).

Posté le : 18-01-2018, 10h32 dans Numista website

To avoid mistakes I'll always check the amount of coins after adding coins to a country, using the "My coins" link: • I can't check this after adding Belgian Congo (https://en.numista.com/catalogue/congo_belge-1.html) because the above links are missing for that country. • It probably has something to do with the dividing in sub-sections so Belgian Congo probably won't be the only country where these links are missing.

What to do when the mule has two obverses or two reverses is something else. A mule is an error, so I guess a mule with two obverses or two reverses can be theoretically possible.

Hey Jarcek, first of all, big congratulations with your recent engagement. • Secondly, I appreciate enormously what you (and all the others!) do for Numista, and you know that, every now and then I tell you that. • And I understand your problem completely. But I have some concerns too. Always when money is involved, problems start coming up (the best example are inheritances, but unfortunately not limited to that, always when money is involved it gets tricky). And don't worry, there will be people who envy you the moment you'll receive money for your work here. The next step is people saying: I don't care about contributions anymore, let Jarcek do all the work, he gets paid for it and we don't. • That's the kind of things that worries me and I'm not sure this development is good for Numista. • And it reminds me at another Team Member who did a lot of work for Numista in the past till he starts asking money for identifications and we all know how that ended.

If you look at the coin page in the comment boxes after the year line, you can see this distinction is already made: KM# 3.1 or KM# 3.2, although it's not exactly the same as in Krause. In Krause the KM# 3.2 starts somewhere in 2001. In that year both sub numbers exist. • I think Numista is wrong: according to your picture 1999 should be KM# 3.1 and not KM# 3.2

In Krause this coin is still listed under Azores.

The Numista program automatically compares his collection with your exchange list and calculates the number of types he hasn't in his collection and you have in your exchange list. You don't have to do anything at all to get these numbers. So these 312 coins are in fact 312 types, so far a collector by date it can be much more than 312 coins.

Posté le : 29-11-2017, 0h31 dans Numista catalogue

There is only a change of legend, not a change of currency, so there is absolutely no need for a separate listing. • We really need more consistency in our catalogue. And more common sense. Sometimes we don't split enough, sometimes we split too much. Like in the case of Peru. They changed the currency legend from "Nuevo Sol" to "Sol" but the legend of "Centimos" stayed unchanged. Nevertheless, a new currency was created: • - Nuevo Sol (1991 - 2015) • - Sol (2015 - date) • So now we have to search the 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Centimos 2016 and 2017 (and later) in the currency "Nuevo Sol (1991 - 2015)" while the 1 Sol 2016 and 2017 (and later) we have to search in the currency "Sol (2015 - date)".

Colombia: 20 centavos 1958 or 59? KM215
Posté le : 28-11-2017, 18h51 dans Numismatic questions

Hi Ole, I think it's a 1959, and not only because the 1958 isn't supposed to exist: • Because the date is following the rim I turned the picture of the date a bit to get the last digit in an upright position. The green arrow is a perpendicular line through the last digit. The red arrows are following the contours of the digits. The left arrow is a copy of the right one, so they are identical. What you immediately see is that both contours are the same but also that the red arrow on the last digit is not symmetrical relative to the green arrow. If the last digit would be an 8, the contour at the bottom half should be symmetrical. • I think the biggest confusion to think it might be an 8 is because of that flaw on the last digit (the blue arrow is pointing at it). That's why I used a negative image, then it's even more obvious it's a flaw on the coin. You can see straight under the flaw, at the top of the red arrow, the contour of the digit makes a right angle (because of [...]

Hey Cavaler, I tested it and it works. That alone already deserves a congratulations. • But to be honest, I find it rather time consuming and not very user friendly: • - It's useless for people who collect by date because you can only fill in the type, not the date or mint mark or variety. • - You have to go to every coin page of the coins you want to search for the catalogue number which is very time consuming. • - I filled in (as a test) 4 very common coins from Argentina and 1 very common coin from Aruba. After only 5 very common coins the result was already only member who has all 5 in his swap list. And then it turns out it was someone who is already a member since a few years but never made one single swap. So I was back to square one. • - Another problem (although I'm sure that's solvable): you can't delete coins you've added. Suppose after adding x coins you still have a lot of members who have all these coins and then you add one more coin an[...]

A stupid thing I did

I think we all made our fair part of stupid things over the years. Here is one of many: I remember when I was around 13 - 14 I wanted to buy my first binder and coin sheets. Although it's about 45 years ago, I still remember there were two different coin sheets. One costed 20 BEF (0.5 €), the other costed 12 BEF. Of course at that age money was a problem so I bought the cheapest ones. The sheets consisted of several rows and each row had 3 compartments. The opening of the compartments to put the coins in was on the right hand side for the first and third compartment and on the left hand side for the second compartment. So you had to carefully keep the binder always upright (or upside down), but never sideways (left or right), even not even a bit or the coins started to fall out of the compartments. You don't want to know how many times that happened, that's why I remember it so well. • So after some years I've thrown away all these cheap coin sheets and replaced them by the more[...]

Nevertheless, I truly support all the efforts someone makes to make our catalogue as accurate as possible. • And even coins/dates nobody owns doesn't exclude other mistakes. Do you remember the quest about the Irish 2 Scilling 1969 (https://en.numista.com/forum/topic41628.html)? It was a date at least 5 members had ticked (including you). But in the end, after more than 50 forum posts, it turned out all those members ticked the wrong box and the decision was made the coin doesn't exist. A lot of research for only 1 coin.

Commemorative 10 new sheqel 5755. Unclear term.
Posté le : 25-10-2017, 18h20 dans Numista catalogue

IMHO, we're talking about the name/title of the coin. The term "replacement coinage" doesn't give any added value to the name. Since there is only 1 10 New Sheqalim commemorating Golda Meir the coin name "10 New Sheqalim (Golda Meir)" is more than sufficient. • In the comment section you maybe can give some explanation about the "replacement coinage", but only if you are sure it makes some sense. We always criticize Krause about their mistakes, but we have mistakes in our catalogue too. It's better to delete extra information if we are not sure about it.

All coins are checked when confirming swap, while not all are intended to be swapped
Posté le : 24-10-2017, 13h26 dans Numista website

I had the same problem about a year ago. I thought it was solved because I didn't have the problem anymore afterwards. But it was very annoying. After the second swapper confirmed the swap suddenly all the coins were checked although not all coins were checked by both swappers, and none of us were 100 % sure about which coins we agreed upon. Very annoying indeed. • But like smoked_caramel said, we also came to the conclusion that all the coins which were checked by only 1 swapper got a double check after the second swapper made his confirmation. • So to avoid this problem (if the program can't fix this problem): before the second swapper confirms the swap be sure there are no coins with only 1 check, just delete those single checks.

Argentina 10 centavos - variants ?
Posté le : 24-10-2017, 1h29 dans Coin identifications and valuations

In the "Amonedacion de la Republica Argentina", by Hector Carlos Janson, edition 2010, an Argentinian catalogue with lots of variants, there is no mentioning about the existence of variants for the 10 centavos KM# 98. Which means within the same year all the coins are the same, so all 1986 coins have a large distance between "centavos" and date, and all 1988 coins have a small distance between "centavos" and date. • Nice find by the way, I haven't noticed this difference when I added my coins of this type to the database.

Concerning the Barbados coin you are completely right. I don't know why your change request is rejected, but there will be a new referee for Barbados very soon (within days) and than this mistake normally will be corrected. • The weight is obviously a mistake in Krause, who gives for this coin a weight of 6.32 gr.

I've weighed 9 coins of this type: • 9.82 gr. • 9.86 gr. • 9.86 gr. • 9.88 gr. • 9.89 gr. • 9.92 gr. • 10.02 gr. • 10.04 gr. • 10.10 gr. • It seems several of the Bahamas coins in Krause have a wrong weight. The 1 dollar KM# 14.2 (1988 - 2005) has in Krause a weight of 5.95 gr., on Numista 6.32 gr. I've weighed 15 coins, all between 6.31 gr. and 6.38 gr. with an average weight of 6.34 gr., so Numista is correct and Krause isn't. • For the KM# 14.2a (2007 - date) both Krause and Numista has a weight of 5.95 gr. .

South Africa Protea coinage valuation
Posté le : 25-09-2017, 14h49 dans Coin identifications and valuations

This coin is part of the "Gold Bullion Protea Coinage". These coins are made with denominations 1 and 1/10 Protea: • Unfortunately no pictures in Krause but according to the description it's the same coin as radrick007 shows in the link. As seen on that picture there is not really a denomination on the coin, just "1 oz", but because COINMAN1 is talking in his initial post about a "1 Protea" coin, I think the coin he's looking for is the "1 oz" coin and not the "1/10 oz" coin. • Anyway, according to the descriptions in Krause, I think radrick007 is right and the requested coin is one of these two and probably the big one.

Only a few minor differences, like the placement of the lettering in relation to the cross, the lettering itself (at the upper right on your coin is "ED" while on the picture it's "EO") and at the upper left next to the little cross on your coin there are three dots, on the picture there are only two dots and an extra letter which looks like an inverted "C". • The obverse is a bust to right or left in pointed helmet.

Biggest coin collecting mistake
Posté le : 06-09-2017, 22h32 dans Free discussion

A long time ago, back in the eighties I took a subscription for the Franklin Mint "Coin Sets of All Nations". A lot of collectors will know these: http://chinacoinset.info/2017/08/coin-set-of-all-nations-franklin-mint-141-sheet-collection-with-china-1981-1982-ji/ • I wasn't that long from school, had a job and so I finally could spend more money on coins. If I'm remembering it correctly I received only two of these cards a month, so on a monthly basis it wasn't that expensive. But I had to pay 950 Belgian Francs (around 23.5 €) per card. So after 4 to 5 years when the collection was completed, it costed me around 2800 €. That was a lot of money, 30 to 35 years ago, and all those coins were very common, no silver in it, no commemoratives, only circulating coins. • Recently I bought a few of these green boxes, with 66 cards in it, for 3 € per card, what a difference. • Of course I made more mistakes, like we probably all do, but this one was the one I regre[...]

In this case you better can choose for "no grade", that doesn't influence the statistics. There are no bad intentions, he didn't give his address so he even couldn't receive your coins.

We wouldn't like it either if something severe happened to one of us and we come back after sometime to find out we got some bad feedbacks with zero stars, without doing anything wrong. • Of course it's a pity the swap couldn't be finalized but there is no harm done. You didn't loose any coins, only some time. So give him the benefit of the doubt and rate him with "No grade".

And look on the free space in the green circle for Y# 177.4 where on your coin there isn't any free space at all. • According to Krause, the difference between Y# 177.3 and Y# 177.4 is the size of the stars on the reverse (small for Y# 177.3, large for Y# 177.4).

Citation: "kaboomboomer"​So I am unsure of basics like the general rule for valuing individual coins in a set versus the value of the set as a whole. • ​I don't know if there is any general rule. For some sets you earn more money by selling the coins individually in stead of as a whole. • In your specific case with the Ajman set, AmerSalmeh says definitely more value to keep it as a set. At least within local collectors in UAE. No reason to doubt that because he is a very respectful and hard working Numista Team Member who knows what he's talking about. However, he specifically says "within local collectors in UAE". So I don't know how it is in the rest of the world.

It makes perfect sense and would be not very understandable if it used same term. • ​First of all, sorry Jarek, I was busy with my answer while in the mean time yours came, so I only saw your answer after I posted mine. • Secondly: you are right concerning the dot/point. In this case, it's about two different things, a point after the F, like it's normal to put a point after an abbreviation, and a dot after the date. • In the case of the Australian coin it's about the same thing: a dot/point after "PENNY" or not a dot/point after "PENNY". In this case it's not consistent and even a bit stupid to talk about "no dot" after "PENNY" and "one point" after "PENNY".

Citation: "Oklahoman"2012 to date has had no dollar coins struck for circulation !

And when you click on "circulation coins" you can choose the coins struck for circulation in 2011 to 2015 too (but I didn't make screenshots of those). • So the Mint says on their official website: from 2012 to 2016 more than 186 million presidential dollars are struck for circulation, and that's why we find so many in circulation. • I'm sorry Oklahoman, I can only read what the website of the Mint says.

Citation: "Houseofham"​Can't say I always have complete confidence in Krause's data. • ​I can only agree with this. And we can all notice, the last x years more and more errors occur in Krause. • I don't have these coins so I can't check if there is a different weight. But for this discussion it doesn't matter that much: ONLY Krause can give KM# numbers. And even if we think these might be wrong, we absolutely can't give KM# numbers on our own. If everyone all over the world would start giving KM# numbers on their own, it would be a complete chaos. Even if we think there might be a wrong KM# number, we can only wait till Krause corrects that wrong number. • So even if these coins would have the same weight, they still have different KM# numbers, so they need a coin sheet of their own here on Numista. And justly (in my opinion), even with your eyes closed you can easily see the difference: one is a silver coin with an equal colour, the other is a silver c[...]

Belgium 1 centime 1901 / 801 overstruck ?
Posté le : 20-06-2017, 6h31 dans Coin identifications and valuations

No, I'm sorry, I am wrong. I assumed that was an enlargement of his coin too but now I see it isn't. And it's written there too: "from Google". Time for me to go to bed I think. • You can see "something" on his coin, but indeed, it's difficult to see if that really is an overstrike. But of course, not every overstrike is equally clearly visible.

What do You think about this swap?

I'm sure I wouldn't have sent a third letter either. After reading your conversation with him it's obvious he did everything he could possibly do to resolve the problem. With the first letter he took a risk by not sending by registered mail, but he took his responsibility and sent a second letter, with registered mail this time. He gave you a track & trace number, you checked it and got the message "the package is send to Macedonia", so it was a genuine track & trace number. • The way you say "I DON’T THINK THAT HE IS A DECEIVER" (in capital letters) looks to me like you think just the opposite. He has 340 swaps with a 10.0/10 average rating and now you make him suspicious. You didn't receive any coins (yet?), so I surely understand you can't give a five star rating, but giving him a 0 star rating, despite the proof he actually sends the coins (genuine track & trace number) is unfair too. And making him suspicious certainly is unfair. And that lo[...]

Sudan 2 unlisted coins; Schon#A95 & #95 (and more!)
Posté le : 15-06-2017, 13h25 dans Numismatic questions

The dates on your pictures aren't clearly visible but in my Schön (edition 2015) you can clearly see (with a jewelry loupe) it's definitely 2001 for both coins and AH1422 for the 50 piastres. The AH date on the 1 piastre I can't see clearly, but because the 2001 is correct, I'm pretty sure the AH1422 is correct too. • The description of the coin says the denomination is 1 and 50 "Qirshan" in stead of 1 and 50 "Piastre(s)". Maybe that was an error and therefore the coins were never released. That could explain why there is no value written for these coins: -,- (and why they are not in Krause).

The last 1 $ coin in the Krause catalogue 2017 is from 2011, maybe it will be in the next edition, or maybe they stopped striking 1 $ coins because the 2 $, 5 $ en 10 $ coins from 2012, 2013 and 2014 are already there. • I don't know what you've paid for it, but the 10 dollars coin is expensive, as you can see in Krause and in your link.

Holed coin or coin with hole?
Posté le : 12-06-2017, 12h20 dans Numista catalogue

Citation: "BramVB"​ • Citation: "Essor Prof"​- Who would struck a coin with a hole through the lettering in stead of in between the lettering, that's not logical at all. • ​​That leaves this question unanswered ... I'd be very interested in the who/why. Was it already done at the "mint" (if such thing existed with Notgeld)? Or did the townmayor take out his drill for some PMD? • ​Funck is the leading catalogue concerning German Notgeld and they even give mintage numbers for those holed coins so I guess the holes are made at the Mint. • I still don't understand why, and certainly not why these holes often are through the lettering, but it seems coins with holes are not uncommon with German Notgeld. And in strange places (at the top, at the bottom, in the top half) and strange shapes (triangular). Here are some examples of these strange places and shapes: coins from Abensberg, Breisach, Miesbach, Mosbach, Kelsheim.... •

Citation: "Coinman48"​A straight alphabetical list would be OK, but a listing under current names (and areas larger than current jurisdictions) is more informative to collectors, in my opinion. • ​I agree that a listing under current names is more informative to collectors but the main purpose of an index is to find a country/territory as quickly and easy as possible and for that purpose nothing can beat a straight alphabetical list. I wonder how many beginners (and even more experienced collectors) will know they have to search for Dahomey at Benin, or French Afars & Issas at Djibouti, or New Hebrides at Vanuatu.

Citation: "Sjoelund"​​​​For the second question I differ a bit, since i don't go to many coin shows (2-3 a year), but when I do go to a show, then I don't take anything else along, than my head and my allotted budget for the day. I have 38.000 different coins (i collect by dates and mint marks), so a spread sheet is not possible, my memory is no good either.... So I try to find sellers with low prices and then I just buy the nicest coins from smaller countries, when possible. Coming home I normally put 99% of the coins into my doubles list and with a bit of luck I substitute the 1% with less nice coins in my collection. On a lucky day I might have one or two "new" coins.

LAGERGELD / POW Currency: tokens or coins?
Posté le : 06-05-2017, 17h45 dans Numista catalogue

Good question. • But not an easy one. There is often a very thin line between tokens and coins. Some coins act like tokens (NCLT's) while some tokens act like real coins and are used in circulation as coins. That's why, in my opinion, German notgeld, French notgeld, lagergeld, POW currency etc. belong in the coin section. • And you are right. Consistency is very important. There shouldn't be a difference in treating comparable coins/tokens only based on the country where they come from. But of course, some are more comparable than others. It's difficult to draw an exact line.

I don't like grading companies at all, but if I were you, for such an expensive coin, I would sent it to NGC and let it authenticate, especially when you have plans to sell it. If it is genuine you can sell it much easier and for a higher price when it's authenticated and you can recover the cost (50 $?) for authentication. • If it turns out it's a fake you lose that cost but you're sure you didn't sell a fake coin yourself. • Suppose you sell it without letting it authenticate but your buyer does it afterwards and it turns out to be fake. Then you can lose your good name and your good name is much more worth than those 50 $.

Australian 1951 Florin KM 47
Posté le : 21-09-2016, 16h18 dans Numista catalogue

I don't understand why this topic is marked as solved. The features column still says 1901-1951, which gives the impression this coin is struck during 50 years while it's only struck during one year. Every coin type in our catalog has in the features column the first year when the type is struck and the last year when the type is struck. Except for those anniversary types. Where is the logic? Where is the common sense? Where is the consistency? • Although I'm already very glad the year line for this coin doesn't say ND but the real date when the coin was struck (1951).

And then correct it as soon as the type shows up in a new edition of Krause.

Of course we can't encourage members to have a second account, for safety reasons. But we don't have to be holier than the pope.

I can only hope you will have it with you again soon. • It's always difficult to create a precedent, but for the good reasons it must be possible and we have to use our common sense. Not allowing second (or multiple) accounts is especially for safety reasons. If you name your second account Heretic_Cata II (or something similar), it's obvious there is no way of bad intentions. With your status and background here on Numista I think you really deserve this so I hope Xavier will allow it. • Good luck with this and good luck with settling in in your new homeland.

New layout for listing varieties in the catalogue
Posté le : 07-09-2016, 13h15 dans Numista website

Citation: "neilithic"In addition I would suggest that we could have a feature where you can press a button to "Hide Varieties" leaving just the standard catalogue. I'm a collector of varieties and I understand people who don't care at all about varieties experience this as a burden. There are a lot of members who collect varieties (from all countries or from specific countries) but of course there are a lot more members who don't collect varieties at all. I truly believe varieties deserve their place in our catalog (in my opinion Numista has to be as complete as possible). But I also believe others think otherwise about this. So I'm a little bit skeptic about changes (it might turn out into an anti-variety feeling) and that's why I don't vote for this idea yet. But if we can find a golden mean to please everyone, like the feature Neilithic is talking about in the quote above, I support the idea and vote for it.

Adding a check-box "Unknown year" as a technical default entry at the very top of every coin type page
Posté le : 07-09-2016, 12h22 dans Numista website

I'm sorry but I don't like this idea at all. We have 78680 coin pages so we should add 78680 (minus coin pages with only 1 year line) year lines!!!! • I totally agree this is useful for ancient or medieval or hammered coins with dates (partially) out of flan but not for modern issues. I already saw some of these "unknown" year lines for coins only a few decades old. Identification is everything concerning coin collecting. Such modern coins that are so worn or damaged a proper identification isn't possible anymore are practically worthless. Coins without a proper identification don't come in my collection. But of course, this is only my personal opinion.

Like Aaron says, the value is what someone is willing to pay for it. But there also exist catalogs for these type of coins.

Posté le : 08-08-2016, 1h02 dans Coin identifications and valuations

Citation: "aaronmgd"Mind me asking how you can tell?A lot of older coins from Egypt, Turkey, Ottoman Empire, .... work with an Accession Date in stead of the actual date. The Accession Date is the year the new empire/king/or whatever starts his reign. Mostly at the other side of the coin is a Regnal Year. This is the amount of years the empire/king/.... is already reigning. So to know the actual date you have to add the accession date and the regnal year. • When you see on a coinpage there are different year lines with the same date in AH and a different Christian date in parentheses, then you know on that type of coin there is an accession date in stead of an actual date. And in that case you will also always find on that year line another number or numbers (often in Arabic) and that is the regnal year. • There is more information on the coinpages than you think but of course you have to know what and where to search for. Hence this explanation.

Posté le : 08-08-2016, 0h13 dans Coin identifications and valuations

The answer is very simple. Belgium exists of a Flemish speaking part (Flanders) and a French speaking part (Wallonia). So most Belgian coins exist with a Flemish legend or with a French legend. • Others (like this one) have a bilungual legend with Flemish text first (BELGIË-BELGIQUE) or with French text first (BELGIQUE-BELGIË). That's the difference between KM# 125 and KM# 126. So yours is KM# 126. • To be complete, there is also a small German speaking part in Belgium but there are no coins with a legend only in German. However, there are a few coins with the three languages together on the same coin.

Citation: "January First-of-May"As far as I understand, the late 1970s gold pahlavi was actually 1000 rials. • The specific examples you give look like a rial is 100 dinars, and the underlying values are supposed to be in dinars but are sometimes entered in rials. I don't know enough to tell if that's actually the case (and I think it's actually 1000 dinars per rial).The relation Pahlavi - Rial is more difficult than I (or we) thought: • - The Law of 18 March 1930 fixed the gold Pahlavi at 20 Rial. • - The Law of 20 March 1932 divided the Pahlavi into 100 Rial instead of 20. • - Since 1937 gold has been allowed to float and the Pahlavi is quoted daily in Riyal in the marketplace. • However the catalog "Current Coins of the World, 6th editon (1974)" by R.S.Yeoman still stated "100 Rial = 1 Pahlavi" (page 137). • Anyway, a floating Pahlavi course makes it more difficult to sort our catalog by denomination.

Start with robbing a few banks? • All joking aside, I never heard about Eliasberg (he's probably famous for American numismatists but I'm not American), so I start googling. • Louis Eliasberg accomplished what no one else accomplished before or since. He built a collection of regular-issue United States coins comprising all then-known dates and mintmarks. He is the only person to ever build a complete set of U.S. coins. • So the chance you can do the same is almost nonexistent. Prices went ballistic in recent years, especially for American coinage, let alone find all these coins again. Some of the highlights of the Eliasberg collection include a 1913 Liberty Head nickel known as the "Eliasberg Specimen". The coin was later auctioned and bought by Ed Lee for US$3 million on July 31, 2003. That's only 1 coin, and the price 13 years ago.

I compared 31 pieces KM# 846 with 11 pieces KM# 846a. No noticeable difference in magnetism. For all those coins magnetism is soft. • Concerning weight: • The average weight for the KM# 846 = 9.51 g. • The average weight for the KM# 846a = 9.55 g. • But although there is an average weight difference of 0.04 g between the two KM# numbers, this difference is too little to really determine the KM# number by weight because of the tolerances.

Posté le : 22-03-2016, 2h48 dans Numismatic questions

To be sure use a digital caliper to measure the thickness. The human eye sometimes plays tricks with reality (for instance because the sides of the edge are a bit slant). I experienced this before with other coins who seem to have a difference in thickness at first sight but when you measure the thickness there is no difference. • Look at the picture. I drew a line equal to the thickness of both coins, then copied the line of the left coin and pasted it right under the line of the right coin and the difference is almost nothing. Of course it's possible the line on the left coin is not correct because the slant of the edge sides is due to blur of the picture. That's why it's better to use a digital caliper (or a normal caliper when your eyesight is still all right). •

[résolu] Easy Search Issue
Posté le : 03-03-2016, 4h39 dans Numista website

This is strange indeed. And when you delete the "1" and only put "escudo 1985 Portugal" in the easy search, you get all the other denominations issued in 1985, except the 1 escudo. • If you use advanced search, then the 1 escudo 1985 is visible. • https://en.numista.com/catalogue/index.php?r=escudo+1985+Portugal&c=&co=y&cno=y&cc=y&cn=y&cj=y&ce=y&cu=y&cat=y&mode=simplifie&p=1&e=&d=&ca=3&no=&i=&v=&m=&a=&t=&dg=&w=&g=&f=

[résolu] Reversing of a 'do not want to swap'
Posté le : 03-03-2016, 4h30 dans Numista catalogue

Yes, in my case it was also something about the confirmation. One confirmation was already made but there was still one coin that had to be changed. So the confirmation was declined and the status of the swap became "denied". But we only had to change that one coin to finish the swap in stead of starting all over again.

Silver or silver clad? That is the question!

Look here: https://en.numista.com/forum/topic47102.html • As Jesse11 said, the silver coin exists only in proof. • And of course, there is a big difference in price. May I ask what you paid for the coin?

Does anyone collect euro-cents of all countries by year? :) :) :)

I do, but it will still take a lot of time before I'll have them added in the Numista database. Maybe in the second half of this year.

Citation: "nalaberong"USA also has $1 coins made for circulation, but the $1 note is more common. I only included coins that are seen more frequently than notes of equivalent denomination. That's why the US is black.

To make our catalog as best as can be, we of course have to get rid of silly year lines like this one. The problem is that so many members have selected this line (how many are that?), so just deleting is no option. We have to be sure that all those members initially added the 1939 line in stead of the silly line where there are now. Sending all those members a message is of course a bit silly too, but I would write a message to a certain amount of them an ask to check this type. If they all answer the ND1 line is filled now in stead of the 1939, then you can assume that is so for all the members in the ND1 line and then you can combine this line with the 1939 line. • Doesn't Numista have a back-up system, where they can check how it was some time in the past, preferably before 30/11/2015?

That's good news. Thanks for your effort to grant his permission.

[résolu] Proof or Uncirculated ?

I'm pretty sure it's not a picture taken by a camera but an image of a scan. When I scan my proof coins you don't see the mirrorlike backgrounds but a dark or even bluish background. • Look for yourself and compare with the Russian coin: •

[résolu] 1963 Sudan - 2 Qirsh KM #?
Posté le : 25-02-2016, 9h24 dans Coin identifications and valuations

I definitely agree with you it's a 100 % new subtype. The only problem is that Krause doesn't see it that way, consciously or by mistake. It would be ideal if we could correct mistakes in Krause, or if we had an inside man there who listens to us. Unfortunately, we can't and we haven't. • But in all honesty, I'm pretty sure you're convinced too that all the 1963 coins are the same and there is no second subtype for that year. There is no proof of it whatsoever, and even nowhere any mentioning about it. • I can understand you as referee don't have the rights to remove a whole listing, but I assume you do have the rights to remove a year line in an existing listing? If not, are you agree I ask a catalog moderator to remove the 1963 year line in the first listing? So keep two listings, one for the 1963 coin, and the other for all the other years.

My view on coin storage, need advice to improve

It's such a pity you have to use these food boxes. You did an awesome job with your labelling, you're labelled Australian coins in the binder form a fantastic presentation. Your coins in those food boxes don't equal that at all, presentation-wise. • We don't have that moisture problem here in Western Europe, so I'm really sorry I can't help you, but I wish you all the luck and hope you find soon a permanent, easy and cheap solution to your problem.

Ukraine KM#88. Two different coins with same km#
Posté le : 24-02-2016, 23h15 dans Numista website

Two totally different coins from the same country can't have the same KM# number. This is indeed a mistake here on Numista. The second coin is KM# 672 in stead of KM# 88. Change request is made. • By the way, this topic should be in "Numista catalog" in stead of "Numista website".
