  1. Since when does spending money count as maths? The younger generation seem to do it by instinct!

    New Beginnings

    This turned up in my change a couple of weeks ago. As you can see, it has been around the block a few times and I'm only keeping it until a decent specimen comes my way.

    on second thoughts, Chris, a scale wouldn't work. I print my collection photographs in book form, and I've found the end result of so many scales is confusing, especially going from crown size to minimi. Just a thought!

    Shame! But you get them on all sites, the spoilers. Recognising them is the problem, but even then, you can't stop them from joining in. Just remember my motto, below!!

    New Beginnings

    Being retired myself, it is nice to have other oldies around to moan about the young, rich collectors that proliferate the webs! You'll enjoy this site. It has everything you need to back up your collection and there is always plenty of advice available, just ask! I've been collecting on and off for 50 some years and would have had a marvelous collection,( including the one I use as my avatar,) by now if I didn't have to sell most of it to buy my first computer. The only advice I could give is,- beware of some e-bay sellers and watch your pocket. It's easy to get carried away. Enjoy!!

    Another Indian?

    No replies to date!? I asked a local Indian woman who claims she can read old scripts, and she maintains it is not Indian, more likely Arabic. Anyone posted to the middle-east have any ideas? It is 13 m.m. diameter.
  8. Another of my aquisitions. Could it be another Indian State? Any thoughts Kuhli?

    Right, I need a favour!

    Just ordered from W.H.Smiths in Whitehaven. Told "the supplier says The re-supply will not be until 3rd December This seems to say they had it in in the first place!! I think someone is telling porkies!

    I notice that part 2 is going to cover silver coins. Is there any plan to carry on with the base metal series of part 1 up to the collapse of the empire(s)?

    A pdf pages 1-53

    I think that when you get around to the minimi it will be difficult to show them actual size! I always size my coins using the 'largest diameter' principal. For example, I've just identified one at 8mm diameter. The inscriptions can only be read with the aid of a magnifier!

    A pdf pages 1-53

    I'm using a small segment of ruler included in the photograph. In centimetres of course, to satisfy the EU! But this does not have to be for each coin, as I intend to use. It could quite as well just be across the bottom of each page (using "header & footer" facility!)

    A pdf pages 1-53

    Sorry Chris! Unintentional I assure you. I am in splendid isolation here so will not copy to anyone. I suggest that a suitable scale be added, something missing from all numismatic books I've seen. Useful in research of earlier hammered/roman/byzantine coins that do vary and reproduction, on computer and print, is rarely accurate! I did try to download a pic but site constraints prevented this!

    A pdf pages 1-53

    I've downloaded and printed the book and think it would be a great general reference for the Roman collector. I've already refered to it for ascribing coins, so far just to confirm the original assessment. Worthwhile I'd say. There may be many more out there in 'predecimal land' than you think! When do you think the next chapter will be ready??

    For the younger ones...

    I'm surprised you lot haven't claimed compensation for dammage to your lungs from chalk dust. Perhaps there's still time...........?

    For the younger ones...

    I was caned regularly "in the old days", usually for not doing my homework, or getting it all wrong. Resented it then, but am grateful they woke me up to the importance of education!

    Awesome collection

    Does that make me a Hammerphobe or a Hammerhead??

    I guess I can't sell it to you folk as gold - could I??? No, Just the result of using tungsten light when photographing. Of course I could have put it on Paintshop Pro and 'adjusted' the colour,tone,brilliance,contrast...............
