gxseries Posted November 19, 2010 Report Share Posted November 19, 2010 Suppose you are given the opportunity to redesign how coins are being bought and sold, how would you go about doing it? Personally I think selling over the internet will not change but the structure of how you locate them or sell them is a total pain. At best, many sites just go by continent and by country and that's it. I propose that we make a huge database where people can go by locating by country, date and the coins. For example 1990 US quarter mintmark P. (making this up completely). If it's for sale, you can just buy it. Suppose if none are for sale, you can put in an offer and a seller can look and see if he's got one for sale. Of course, some other interested buyers can put a higher price and the seller can just sell it to the higher buyer. Instead of the normal bidding process where there's a end time, this advertisement is more structured, sellers stand to gain more and buyers can just leave their advertisement and wait for an answer. When an transaction has occured, price is recorded and this becomes a database of historical price. What do you reckon? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
