Again.... coins collection :)

Post by Tiger » Wed Jun 12, 2002 11:12 pm

Well,
I really want to complete my collection :D
I traded already with some people from this board, and from elsewhere..
But I still miss quite some coins :cry:

You can see my current collection on http://users.pandora.be/tiger/euro/.
(*spam* :D)
If you are willing to help me, don't hesitate to contact me ! :)
All help is welcome!

Greetz,

Tobias

A bit confusing, your website: What does **2 and 2** mean? The different directions of the edge lettering?
I think I could provide you with most of the German ones and also some of the others (e.g. the Austrian lady) and some of the French or Spanish ones.
You can see my coins at microcoins.yoll.net :)
I'd be interested in a Belgian set and something from Luxembourg or whatever doubles you have.

Yeah I know....
The **2 and 2** are indeed the different edge letterings...
But i'ts hard to see the difference on these coins :)
The german coins have a text, so it's easy to see if it's normal or upsidedown.
But e.g. the belgian coins have onle 2**.
So when you face the 2 up, you can see '2**' or '**2'
You really have to look well. The stars are'nt symmetric, they have 2 points down, and 1 point up (if you know what I mean) i'ts a star with 5 points... (dunno what's the correct word for these 'points' :P)
So you only watch the stars that are faced up (with 1 point up and 2 points down) and you see where the 2 is.
So you can get '2**' or '**2' :)

I know my website is a little confusing, but actually it was made for myself :)
I'll try to make a better one 'for the public' :)

Site looks nice, but is very confusing for people who don't really know a whole lot about collecting coins.

Why are a lot of fields grey, or blue?
What are type i and h?
and type II and III ?

and a nice description of the ** etc would be nice too.

But when i've got some time i'll definately use it to take a look at my own collection (to much traveling, no time to sort things out :-))

Yeah I know...
As I said before, this site was actually made for myself as a help for my collection.
When my exams are over, I'll make a better site for the other people :)

Ah, and type i and h are actually 2 arrows...
It's a font called wingdings3 and I know on my dads Macintosh it alsow displayed i and h instead of an uparrow and a downarrow.
I'll work on that too when I make another site :)

I got today a 20c coin from Luxembourg!
I know they are quite rare, aren't they?
But still no signs of Finnish coins :(

yeah the Luxemburg coins are really rare !
Even here in Belgium...
I myself didn't get a single one :(
Sometimes someone from my familiy finds one and gives it to me, but thet are really rare!

And the Finnish... yeah well...
It's not so easy for Finnish coins to come to the rest of Europe, and when they do I think they travel like 1 or 2 transactions before they disappear in some collection...

Let's hope this will change when all those collectors get bored :D

My little collection can be seen at http://ifrance.iquebec.com/rolf1/person ... coins.html

I live in Germany, at the border to France, less then 100 km from the border of Luxembourg. I often get coins from France, Luxembourg and Italy, sometimes also Belgium and Spain.
I haven't seen any coins from Finland, Greece, Ireland, Portugal or the tiny countries (MC, RSM, V) yet.

I have two 2 and 1 € coins from Luxembourg, but only one 50 and one 10 ¢ coin.

So I could give you the 2 Euro coin from Luxembourg plus one Cent from Germany or France, and you give me 1 Cent from Luxembourg plus 2 Euros from another country.
