Before opening that link I could already guess who was at the top. Added to the useful links post

That's only because with the exchange rate being as it we're busy spending all our money on British coins ;)

Don't know where to start. What do you want to know about?

You never stop learning, so the first bit of advice is to read, and then some more. And don't gain your knowledge from the eBay school of numismatics. ;)

A Little description of this website

 

THE Newman Numismatic Portal (nnp.wustl.edu) is a new, powerful research tool for the numismatist. It is based at Washington University in St Louis, USA (WUSTL) and is funded by a 4-year, $US2M grant from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES). The all-seeing eye is emblematic of the Newman Numismatic Portal, the goal of which is to freely share a vast online store of both printed and virtual numismatic resources. Books, periodicals, ephemera, as well as online forums and auction offerings will be captured in one location, freely available, and searchable from anywhere in the world. With unprecedented knowledge at their disposal, collectors and researchers will gain greater appreciation for numismatic science and more clearly discern fact from fiction.

Looks to have a bit of a lump at the beginning of where the legend should be, so probably the die was blocked with grease. What is the reverse like?

Leaving aside the contentious locations for certain Civil War mint issues, there are a few glaring mistakes in the list - particularly assigning the Briot marks to Bristol. A lot of the provincial marks are particular to an individual engraver or location, so things can get a little messy to say the least, whilst one or two are still uncertain.

https://uk.bidvoy.net

supposedly gives a full history of eBay sales over the past 6 months. 
You can also set your own date range or restrict to say the past couple of weeks etc. to see what's been happening on eBay.
