A strange one, I guess.

 

i've received a request to place on this site links to the pictures of more than 1500 coins in the upcoming Sincona auction in October.

 

Similar links have been displayed in the Russian-speaking numismatic forum (Staraya Moneta).

 

Is anybody interested ? Is it OK if I place the links here ?

 

Thanks.

 

p.s. to clarify my relationship with Sincona...there is none, actually. Have no clue why I was contacted on this (or, maybe, I'm not alone ?)

Of course, I am very interested to see the pictures, as probably everyone else is, too. :)

 

I just went to the Sincona site a couple of hours ago, but didn't see any coins nor any link to that auction. I would expect Sincona to put the pictures on their own website, or on Sixbid. Then you or someone else could put up a link to that place here on the forum. I wonder why they do it this way? How many links are we talking about?

If you experience any technical issues please contact Sincona directly (via their web site....

 

i guess that's it...

Download complete! Each file is a compressed archive in .RAR format which contains nothing but the images of each coin, obverse and reverse -- no descriptions, no price info. :( Unless you are really curious, I would wait for the real catalog to appear.

 

Are you sure that the request came directly from Sincona and not someone who works there?

I'm just wondering about the legal implications of providing this kind of link (no copyright statements in the files, etc.)?

Are we (the forum) getting ourselves into trouble here?

:unsure:

Websites like GigaPeta pay people who upload popular flies.

I don't think we'll get in trouble for posting the link, but I'd prefer links to original sources than some third party download sites.

 

Loyal Citizen, did you receive the request to post links via the forum or email?

The reason why I asked is I wanted to know if someone on the forum is approaching other members to post links for them.

Normally, I'd remove links from sites like gigapeta, but if you think that this is good legit information, I don't mind.

 

I downloaded the files and can confirm that they do contain what they say (coin pictures, i.e. not porn or malware.)
