    Facebook Coin Pages/Groups?

    I'm no longer on FB, but I remember the period prior to the formation of groups. FB never had a great search function, as it wasn't tailored at the outset to function as forums do. Nonetheless, FB largely killed forums of all types (for all my varied interests), sadly. Even with the creation of groups on FB, they never replaced the wealth of knowledge present in forums. I wouldn't be upset had they been used as a side means of posting sales/trades, since they do that well, but the fact forums all suffered, many to the point of folding, no longer hosted, it's disheartening. When I was on FB I ran some groups and tried adding 'notes' and 'files' and pinning informational topics, etc., but it still wasn't the same as a good old forum. But now hardly any activity happens in forums, so while older information is housed on them (if they're still hosted), it isn't necessarily current. I wish I had an idea how to draw people back, but I don't know that it's feasible, any more than getting numbers of people back on irc or in bulletin boards. Telegram (TG) and Discord may offer some more possibilities, perhaps, but layout still offers less than some aspects of forums, but more likely to entice groups of people. I personally use Telegram regularly, maybe a predecimal TG group could be tried out.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Anyone able to verify these are fake? Price seems too good to be true for Gothic Florins. It's not a series I own any of yet. https://www.ebay.com/itm/204521570729

    Ah, here we are, the full rev
  7. It's awful so many modern counterfeits are flooding from China.

    1862 penny with 6/6

    Having to split the rev due to file limits. I don't seem able to post the bottom half, due to the restrictions, even as a new comment. Might try again later, but with first comment, one can reasonably see both sections.

    As you can see, there is quite a lot if porosity to the flan, but also good detail.
  10. Hi I didn't bid on this ebay (USA, where I'm located) item strong enough to win, sadly, but i think i found a 6/6 in this 1862. I sent the ebay link to Richard, of PennyVarieties, back in August, after the auction ended. He responded with "Well spotted. Looks like a repair to the 6 as none of the other numerals are doubled. Haven't seen this one before." It's now just past 90 days, so I don't believe I can pull up the original picture in my laptop to download thd seller's pictures vs the screenshot. Since I didn't win, I won't be able to offer much else, picture-wise (plus my filesize limit required cropping). It was a fairly pitted specimen, albeit with many details remaining on both sides. I'll see if I can post more of the full obv and rev in comments, if that may be of interest.
