By matching the coin closely your coin has very blunt edges of design where as the fine lines are more thicker than the coin in NGC ,this is a clear sign of cast.The design of your coin is thicker .I believe your coin will be heavier then specified weight . • Still Best of Luck ,I may be wrong and you get a pleasant surprise .

Its unbelievable still people are not serious !!! • People should resist themselves for this temptation of swapping for this difficult period. • At present there is focus on providing basic facilities such as food and medicine to everyone.

Problem with a swap - asking for advice
Posté le : 17-01-2020, 11h54 dans Swaps and trades

There could be numerous valid reasons which are not in our hands sometimes, I remember I was in discussion for swap with a member from Brazil who had around 50 successful swap with no problem and I was new member with 2 swaps.He even shared the pictures of the coins to be swapped, he told me that he was having some financial problems as his son was ill ,he will be confirming the swap after month and contact me , soon there were negative ratings started to appear on his profile and within few weeks he unsubscribed from Numista. I believe he never wanted to cheat anyone ,we never know what happened....... • As I was very new and he had many swap he could have easily cheated me if he had any wrong intentions, but he didn't . • There are circumstances which are not with you and we get blamed .I hope the person you are swapping with is not in any big trouble and soon he get chance to send you the agreed coins ,so I guess don't loose hope and stay calm.

To stop scammers and make Numista a more safer Place for swap I propose this idea - • This can be easily avoided by active participate ......... • A simple modification on Numista can save many people,In the profile page were we can see the number of swaps on Road should have a hovering effect where we can see the IDS of member who have confirmed the swap. • Why Wait for ratings to clear up the things its like who will bell the cat first! people are afraid to rate negative first knowingly they have been cheated and wait for someone first to write rating so the cheater will spoil there ratings also if they rate negative and the crook take advantage of this silence and cheat more people..reporting a member doesn't work instantly , it take time . • If the IDs appear as swap on road, members can discuss among themselves if there is any suspicion and the issue can be handle at very initial level. I hope this would be possible in 2020 to make NUMISTA a better pl[...]

Sir, in my suggestion the value thing should be totally stopped, it has no real relevance, for different countries the coin price is different, it depend on its availability. Numista is Best place for swap.I have seen coins value at ucoin ,they are not at all relevant to real value . • For a swap ,a coin value depends on individual who want to swap it for a coin he want and and a mutual understanding with his swap partner that what they thinks its value is and they are Happy with it ........... • Numista is not for selling ,if it has fix values for swap coins it will restrict it self to a paticular region .That would be not good for the site where the members are from all the hemispheres. That would not be good to its multicultural structure. For example ucoin values are inline with mostly Russia,but not same as US or Asian country ... • This is the main hiderenc in Ucoin and + point for now in Numista.

Hello friends, I want to share a message from a very senior member on Numista with whom I had a discuss about this.... • Hello, • After one of the posts I wrote in the facebook groups, one collector who is interested in not only coins but antiquities too wrote that this is not one person's dirty job, it's a small gang of gypsy people who are present in a lot of buy-and-sell and swap sites as well (he mentioned they tried to deceive people in a group specialised in old watches). • They use more names and addresses according to the collector, so the best way to avoid them is to not send anything to Hungary without serious background check. I'm a bit sad to advise this because this can be a serious drawback for otherwise trustworthy Hungarian newbies. However in my opinion if someone is honest it won't be a problem for him/her to send first until he/she builds up a good swap history. • Don't send anything to Hungary if the person you send to doesn't have at lea[...]

Its Good to know about your project ,But I think its a tough thing to do as 2018 has passed by just few days.Generally speaking getting a coin from same year and last year is always difficult .In my country India ,I have not seen a single coin of 2018 yet and only 2-5 coins of 2017 .It will be amazing to see how many coins you get from India 2018 ! Good Luck...

This statement is totally false as (Kasinathan )Mr Anoop Sasidhara Kurup is lying .Check the Track 17 snapshot on Custom has informed him about the parcel has been held and address notified . This is very standard process Custom follow in India ,As people bring all sorts of material example i-phones,Drones,electronic chips by post to escape Taxes, so custom held the item send a Register letter in the name of person to whom the letter/parcel is addressed to ask about the content and its value and then open the parcel check it verify and evaluate it .Then next process is if they contain is legal they charge additional Taxes if applicable and release the item. • There is absolutely no such restriction by Mumbai Customs ,to send or receive coins as gift/hobby item if its well pack and not too heavy.........I my self has received international swap Last month (November )passed from Mumbai Custom one from Czech Republic,1 from Canada and my 2 post are on the way to Belgium . &bull[...]

Rs 200 note series
Posté le : 01-09-2018, 17h24 dans Free discussion

Hi friends, today I went to ATM for some cash, to my surprise I got a wonderful series in Rs 200. • It was my wish to have one 786 number note, as it's very popular in Asia sub continent as this is sacred number to Islam followers. These are very much in demand on eBay. Although I am not much in note collection, but this is very interesting piece to keep. • The series start with 781 and end at 805, if anybody interested in any special number note from this, can contact me before I spend them. I will prefer coins with exchange of note.

Posté le : 25-05-2018, 7h31 dans Numismatic questions

This is a type of error during production of sheet metal forming for minting of coins, for understanding this you have to understand how coins are minted. Coins are minted from sheets of metal roll. These sheets are made from a large chunk of metal which are rolled in rollers to make it flat sheet to different thickness. During this rolling process the thin layers of metal get pressed one upon another during rolling process - it usually occur in the starting point and end of the sheet. As these are thin layers one upon another pressed by rollers, with time it react with environment more that a single sheet as single sheet has less pores than this layers of sheet due to this coin and appear like a wood finish or lines.

Stainless steel pennies?

Stainless Steel is the best material for coins.Italian Government is very wise to start this trend.For this Best example is Country like India ,Bangladesh etc where coins are subjected to very harsh condition,coins are thrown at worship places,coins are thrown in vegetable market,fish market,beggars bowl,fast food shops and many more.coins are used very roughly ,still the stainless steel coins the inscription ,picture are intact compare to cupro-nickel coins,I personally hate Aluminium coins I remember when I was young we had 5,10,20 paisa coins of aluminium and they were in very bad condition ,I never saw a good coin in circulation when I was young.Only now after almost 20 years I see XF coins on Ebay and I wonder where these coins come from.Technically aluminium is not at all suitable for coins it corrode very easily,bend very easily and get damage is very shot period.

Before the Partition of India in 1947, There were 565 Princely States, also called Native States, existed in India,which were not fully and formally part of British India, the parts of the Indian subcontinent which had not been conquered or annexed by the British but under indirect rule, subject to subsidiary alliances. • Out of these 565 , At least 125 states produced their own coinage, mainly in the period from 1800 to 1900, though a number continued to issue coins until the 1947. • The Sikh Empire • The Sikh Empire (also Sikh Khalsa Raj, Sarkar-i-Khalsa or Pañjab (Punjab) Empire) was a major power in the Indian subcontinent, formed under the leadership of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, who established a secular empire based in the Punjab.The empire existed from 1799, when Ranjit Singh captured Lahore, to 1849 and was forged on the foundations of the Khalsa from a collection of autonomous Sikh misls .

Practically there can be triple, 4,5,6,..... • die coin. You have to understand how coins are made. In a press machine when a coin is accidentally punched twice it is called double die coin. And in worst case a coin accidentally can punched N- number of times before it can stopped. • One more reason for this is when die or punch get loose from its base, with every stroke of machine it shakes little bit forming a double letters appearing on coin. Before the machine operating realise this, hundreds or thousands of coin get punched with double lettering • The only thing is how these pieces accidentally comes out of the Mint.

It should be responsible, Respectable forum. • But things like this is very sad. My son is * year old... I had a thought that when he we be older, together we will share our coin collection and I will introduce him to numista, but with this situation where a coin is intentionally modified, a coin of a country which is known for democracy, freedom and rights, a coin issue by official Government is shamed like this wilth a made up story which did not have any reliable source is proudly added in catalog, are we up to numbers or Quality? Extremely Sorry but, the best coin identifiers are here in this topic, but No body opposed this wrongdoing. • May be I am wrong , it's a cultural differences....

Ping/ Ring test how accurate is it ?
Posté le : 24-10-2017, 16h47 dans Numismatic questions

Hello Sir... • It is not necessary that two coins will give a similar tone. • If the weights are similar of two coins(if measured very pricesly it will be never same ) ,it's diameter is identical, still there is chance that the ping sound will be not similar. Reason for this is if the coin has a Crack line inside, or a a small pore, which are formed during casting, pressing metal and cannot be seen with naked eye then the sound get obstruct, causing different tone. Only by X-ray it can be determined. • This doesn't mean you coin is fake, it's only that it has failed one test, even if the coin is genuine , technically it is a faulty coin. • I hope I am able to give you the explanation about the sound of your coin.

It's even possible you'll find your coin by filling in only 1 box. • ​Strange you never can find the coin your searching. Maybe you forgot to tick the right boxes in the bottom search box (Coin type). Maybe some boxes are not ticked (like "non circulating" or "commemorative") and then you won't find what you're looking for. The easiest way is to tick there "all".Just type the following examples in numista Search and in Google you will understand what I mean to say.... • 1pound coin United Kingdom • 20 kon cccp 1936 • Quarter Anna India 1945

Tovarich • I strongly recommend not to add these coin as these coins are not any part of history but part of a Ongoing conflict in Iraq Syria and day to day bombing in European countries, Pakistan, Bangladesh... everywhere.... Purchasing These coins or giving stories that some one has sold and again some has sold to someone is rubbish...adding this in this moment will only show that we support this and we recognize this blood she'd as not a conflict in a country may be when this conflict will over hopefully or 10,20,years from now it can be added... • If some members want these to be added than I will ask them do they will justify if Alqaeda osman coins be added?????? Hope the administration of numismatic will understand what I want to say........... • love&respect • @arvin11

Hi Fluke sir…. • After looking your post I was so excited I could not stop my self ...that I picked up the coin and put it on a gas flame it was burning green I was so glad to see this verdigris getting burned off and thought this is the end of this green thing ….thank you SirFluke for this beautiful idea…. • I remembered we used to clean carbon black engine parts with kerosene during overhauling to remove black carbon deposits with emery paper. So I tried with the burned coin (without any Scrubbing with any emery paper)Just use a old tooth brush and about 80% the black burned carbon is gone.
