  1. That's why I was asking. Ok getting the better stuff. Thxs Pat
  2. Hi I started collected tokens. I m shopping around for clear double pockets coin flips with inserts. I like to shop Ebay. They go from $8 to $19 for 100 shipped. The most expensive ones are museum quality from supersafe. The tokens I buy are affordable $5-$15. Do I need the best coin flips or are the cheapest one ok? Thanks a lot Patrick
  3. Hi I correct mistakes I make on coin flips with bic white out. It does not do a good job, you are left with a little mound of white stuff that is very hard to write on. Is there something else I can use? Thxs Patrick
  4. Hi I can't seem to find how to check a seller feedback. I am logged in but clicking on the sellers name does nothing. I made one purchase on this site and had to leave feedback, so it has to be somewhere. Thanks Pat
  5. I found the free ebooks link but I don't see a link to download the books. Can anyone confirm they are to be read online only? I would prefer to have them on my hard drive though! Thxs Pat
  6. Hi Can anyone tell me how to access books in the free domain? I tried google books but got nowhere. Can they be downloaded once found or is it just for online reading? Thxs Pat
  7. Ian Thxs so much for the clarification. I have a lot of work to do. Pat
  8. Ian I appreciate the answer. I am going to study that web site you mentioned, it's quite interesting. Now the books you recommended, I am a little confused. Amazon has a kindle edition of the first one and there is a free preview. I don't see any pictures in it, is that normal? The second one I found on Ebay for $100. That's a little bit over my league. Are there PDF or scanned versions online of these books? Thxs again Pat
  9. Ian thanks so much for the answer. Like I said anything related to medals or tokens from Europe in the 19th century will interest me, war or civil. So they can throw anything at me in that field. I just acquired my first token, the coronation of prince Willem of the Nederlands in 1814. Pat
  10. Hi I am a coin collector and interested in collecting token and medals. I am a modest collector and I won't go over $50 a piece. I want to focus on a large selection which is 19th century Europe. I am looking for links, books to help me get started. I am fluent in French and English. Also anything that can help me identify real from fakes. Auctioneers on Ebay never mention if it's a replica or real. Thxs Patrick
  11. Hi I searched the web but find only solutions for US coins nothing for world coins. Let's take an Australian 50 cents coin KM# 364 this coin says on Krause 0.9990 silver and .5353 oz and let's say for this example sake that the silver rate is $21 today. Can anyone show me how to calculate this silver coin value? Thanks a lot Patrick
  12. Thanks JoseMartin and DeOrc for the links. Anybody else has somebody to share? The more links the better, I love to browse foreign coins sites. Even if you see this thread way after I posted it, I stay subscribed to it so please post. Thanks again Patrick
  13. Thanks for the answers so far and the link Becky. De Orc which sellers do you recommend on Ebay for such lots? Thanks a lot Patrick
  14. Hi I am looking to buy some foreign circulated coins by the pound or by the 100, in 2x2's or not.The regular circulated stuff. I am not picky as of condition but don't want any culls. Dates have to be readable. Reading "coin world" and "Numismatic news" I see some offers but how to know who sends you nice lots and who sends crap? I am looking to get 10lbs from 1 seller. I don't want any USA or Canadian coins (Canadian prior to 1960 ok), some Mexico OK but not a lot. My collection being so small I could fill many holes this way while having fun. I hope someone can recommend some sellers (No Ebay). Thanks a lot Patrick
  15. Thanks for the reply that's what I though, no COA for the 1977 proof set. I have seen several, none had one. Thanks again Patrick
  16. Hi I can't find the info so far to what I believe is a stupid question. Is there a COA in the US 1977 proof set? If someone owns one and could check for me I would appreciate it. I do believe all coins from the mint come with certificate but I can't find that info for sure. Thanks a lot Patrick
  17. Thank-you for the reply. So in general a silver coin written .999 is worth at least $14? I have a very thick 1991 Canadian 5 dollars .9999, proof in mint issued package, so I can safely say it is at least worth US $14 ? This one I keep. Thanks a lot Patrick
  18. Hi My name is Patrick I am from France but I have lived in the states for 15 years now. I am married to a US citizen and we have a 14 Y.O. daughter. I have a renewed interest in coins and will focus on worldwide sets either mint or proof in my price range. Thanks a lot Patrick Atlanta-GA-
  19. Hi I have a coin or is it called a medal maybe of "Space shuttle challenger". It has the shuttle on it and written January 28th 1986. On the other side "In memory of seven great Americans" .999 silver. It comes in a coin flip and appears proof-like to my rookie eye, I don't see a single defect or scratch but the coin can be removed from the flip. I want to trade it and would like to know the rough value. Thanks a lot Patrick
