I did some upgrades last night while everyone was sleeping, so that might be the cause of some of the issues Gilmore experienced. I'm reviewing everything right now, and I'll see if I can find problems and fix them.

A short test and more easy access info on how the CC works is a great idea.......

I've spent most of the last few days making the forms a lot simpler, but with far better help info. I guess it's just an incremental process, improving every day.

I think it would be a lot of fun to put tests on the CC that can test your numismatic knowledge. But, would it be an open book test?

For those who are interested, another variety coin is being auctioned on Zhaoline today.

What was the conclusion here? Which are most rare? Brackets or no brackets?
I shipped 5 coins in to NCS and they all had brackets... and I just purchased another raw coins, this had no brackets (my first!).. seems like the bracket variety is the most common up here, ratio 5:1 in my case

And how can it be that these coins sell for ten times more in China then at ebay? And 20 times more than I buy for them raw??

The brackets variety are the most rare. Have a look at my first post in this thread to see the prices they sell in
China, they are on fire. And you have few of them.... Amazing!

The 5 brackets one are at NCS/NGC now - but if I want to sell two of them in China - is that even possible??

( I even passed at  buying these coins raw for 40usd once or twice since I was focusing on the HF series  :cursing: )

Thx for the reply :)

You can open an account at zhaoonline.com, a Chinese auction site, and auction the coins there. Once sold you can have the money being transferred to your Paypal account. They charge something like 10% as commission and additional 1% of the closing price as an insurance.

Can I ship coins to China with Fedex? Why dosent people sell their Traditional Culture Coins there then? I mean its not hard to find these at ebay for as low as 100USD as far as I can remember... or maybe that has changes now?

hmmm - I will need to look into this! Thank you very much!

I do not know what is the best way to ship coins to China. The few times I shipped coins from Taiwan to China it was by Express mail.

I have seen this variety on ebay Germany several times in the past and every time it brought over 1000-1300 Euros.
If you can find them easily where you are at and priced like the common coin you'd better grab as many as you can.

so on what basis do we assume that the parentheses version is the rarest?

That's amazing!  5 bracket in a row, and I supposed you bought them from the same dealer with bargain basement pricing?  The odd is so small, there must be some reason for it.  BTW, you should go buy lottery ticket, the Force is strong with you.

You and me, we are brothers.  We both collect HF, I'm the keeper of the Kublai Khan small army, and you are the keeper of the bracketed Genghis Khan.  We are the Khan brothers.  Yo, Bro!

I'll be very happy to trade one of my small army KK for one of your bracket Khan, but I don't think that's a good deal for you.  Did you check your KK for the vanishing spears or frosted spears?
