  1. Ditto... Gut feeling based on very little experience. I would suspect, however, that a coin that has been bronzed would NOT display any luster (lustre). I think it might also display a slightly different surface texture. Whereas a coin as struck, would display some natural luster, at least until it disappears with handling or age.

    I would suspect using cpu resources first.

    Being an Emperor would trump Trump being only a President... Maybe the the etymological root of 'trample' is actually 'trump'. As in the following. "The Emperor exhorted the populace to 'trumple' over the Senate."

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    That was my impression... Otherwise it would be impossible to keep even semi-accurate population records. There will always be an overlap of coins which were broken out of the slabs and resubmitted as new submissions. These resubmissions, as opposed to submitting a coin for re-evaluation, will tend to skew the accuracy of the total numbers.

    Anyone not able to upload pictures, like Azda and me?

    I had a problem last time I had to upload images. Secret Santa posted them for me....

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

     They deserve everything they get  I'm sure if it continues to be submitted, it will increase to its previous grade or higher eventually. At least until another entity with stars in their eyes thinks the grade can be improved upon once again. And the vicious cycle repeats itself ad infinitum (perhaps ad nauseum would be more apropos).

    As I'm still looking for an example, I would be content if I had found it. More convincing than the superpoor possible VIGTORIA that I found a while back..

    I recently acquired what is possibly the 5th known specimen of a Half-Penny variety, unlisted in Freeman but acknowledged by Dracott in his Half-Penny study.... An 1873 obverse 8 paired with reverse C#. What I later discovered amongst some coins that I already had, but passed over because it was not an obverse 8, was another 1873 Half-Penny with reverse C#, but paired with Obverse 7... UNKNOWN & UNLISTED till now..... See attached scans......

    Ebay fees???!!?!?!

    As a regular seller, I am sure you are aware of the following, but I restate it for the record.. There are a many added fees for additional services which, IF you use them can add up very rapidly (ie: bold, picture paks, highlighted, additional country site, etc.). On a lower priced item, these fees can vastly increase your cost percentage. These fees are less likely to be as obvious nor skew your percentages on a higher priced sale. Another factor to consider is the cost of listing and relisting items that do not sell the first time around. It's very easy to jack your costs up with little or no appreciative added value to your gross sale. The fees only serve to cut into your net profit and/or increase your expenses.

    Having seen, heard of, or experienced situations such as you described, my general mantra has been: 'When you have a situation that needs professional advice, seek a professional. And even then, get a second opinion.' Unfortunately, too much gets by even the experts....
