Here's my shot at the Catagories for PCI2010 based on past PCIs and the comments received.

 

Group 1: Ancient XX-499AD

 

Group 2: Medievel 500AD-1500

 

Group 3: 1501-1700

 

Group 4: 1701-1800

 

Group 5: 1801-1900

 

Group 6: 1901-2000

 

Group 7: 2001-Present

 

Group 8: NCLT

 

Group 9: Exonumia

 

Group 10: Special Coins - anything you collect that you feel warrants being outside the other catagories.

 

I know this violates the "rule of 8's" but I plan to handle Groups 7 & 10 as specials and so I'm confident that it can be handled correctly.

 

Here's my plan to release the groups for voting. The amount of time that each group will run will be determined by the number of entries for that group. I think the group should be available for voting or five days at each step of the ladder.

 

PCI2010 Group Release Dates

 

Week #1.....Week #2.....Week #3.....Week #4.....Week #5

Group 1

Group 8

...................Group 2

...................Group 7

......................................Group 3

......................................Group 6

......................................................Group 4

......................................................Group 5

....................Group 9

.........................................................................Group 10

 

 

I'm planning to release two groups at a time with a one week lag between activations. I'm hoping this will give everyone a fair chance at reviewing the material and casting their votes/comments without being overwhelmed by the sheer volume of wonderful coins to review. The active threads will build but the material in most of them will be items that you've had a chance to see before.

 

 

I am going to leave this up for comments and "sign-off" for 5 days. Please take your best shot at this so it can be closed and the fun can begin.

Only positive comments from me. Feel free to violate the 'rule of 8' :ninja: , afterall you're the guy running it so it's up to you how you approach it, everyone has their different ways of working. Sounds great and count me in.

 

Let me know when you want the entries so I don't miss it!

It's not fair to make only one group group for 1901-2000!

Compare Group 6 with group 7! The richest century in numismatic items versus 9 years of low artistic value and plenty of NCLT's!

In my opinion it's better to assimilate 2001-present with NCLT and split in two the 1900-2000 period.

It's a valid point banivechi, although following your argument maybe 1901-1950, 1951-2010 would be better? However, on the other hand having co-ordinated this competition in the past I can totally understand Art's choices. I always used to strive to make it as simple for myself as possible. The problem when you start breaking categories down into ever smaller chunks is two fold;

 

Firstly the competition becomes more of nightmare to run with more categories etc. and secondly (and perhaps more importantly in my opinion) there becomes a greater bias towards coins issued in the twentieth century.

 

Now when I ran it I confess I did sometimes split the twentieth century down the middle, but as consequence there was always twice as much twentieth century stuff than there was any other for any other century. Simply put this isn't really fair, from a personal point of view I always considered the 19th century to be the richest century in numismatics (even though I own nothing from that century).

 

Then of course another reason behind the whole competition is to try and highlight some of the less well known areas of the numismatic world. There are many rich and wonderful pieces from earlier centuries, and several collectors on this forum are well equipped with earlier offerings such as the 18th, 17th and 16th centuries, surely these deserve as much air space as the 20th century?

 

Just a thought.

I'm in. It looks like it'll work fine. I think it's important that we make note of the competition wherever we can to try to get as many people involved as possible, both as competitors and voters.

I'd be in if I had anything new since the last 2 or 3 PCIs. I am sure I will vote some, though.

 

 

I think the previous PCI's inspired me to buy better stuff :ninja:

I've sent several hundred pm's informing people about PCI2010. I'm going to try to post something about it on CoinTalk and I'll update the CoinPeople group on Facebook about it as well.

I'd say bring 'em back! It's been a while since the last one, and I'm sure there are a lot of new people that never voted on them before. I think that's what I'll do. ;)

 

 

BTW: Art, I think it' sgreat that you're making the effort on this. It really was a fun project every time it was up! :ninja:

Yes, Ætheling and Sir Sisu, come on by and join up. Even some of the Ogres and Bunnies are known to be on there.
