Hi Badon and everyone.  I new here and very new to the numismatic coins world.  Can I get on the CC list as well?  Not sure how I can help but will try my best.  I can read/ translate Chinese if that's useful? :)  Cheers!

I would like to volunteer. By the way could you explain further the concept of sighting?

I am interested in joining the testing and discussions. My primary interest is NGC Pandas.

Thank you

Hi Badon
  May I have a login to the CC also? I can do some entries when I find the time.

Thanks

Hi Badon, the Coin compendium has become an impressive database already. I especially love the annotation feature. I'd like to know if you are interested in using it for older Chinese coins as well? I don't see a category for coins older than 1949. Is it OK if I create one and start registering my NGC graded coins?

Ooooo, I know you are addressing badon, but may I jump in?  I would LOVE, LLLOOOVE, to have you and KONDi work on the older Chinese coins.  That would be truly wonderful.

Absolutely! The only remaining reason that I don't collect the older coins is because there's so little publicly available information about them. If you want me to help drive prices up for the coins in your collection, please add info about them to the CC. Do you already have an account, or do you need one?

Hehe thanks, I'm very interested in the project as well, and I think I can start contributing more meaningfully now that I'm slabbing my collection. I find most of the catalogues (L&M, Kann) are too coarse, and I like how the CC allows to easily track interesting varieties and rarity.

I already have an account, even if it didn't see much use until now.

I'm going to be watching with great excitement and anticipation as you add info about the older coins. They are fascinating, and an excellent investment.

Another question: I saw your post about © on the pictures. Is it OK to use pictures from auction houses if one owns the coin depicted, or do we need to make pictures ourself to keep clear of any © claim that may arise? If so, I may upgrade my gear, the little Sony point&shoot will not cut it.

If the photos were taken by the auction house, the photos belong to the auction house, even if the coin is/was yours. You might be able to "buy" the non-exclusive copyright to the photos just by making it a condition of your submitting more coins for them to auction for you. Non-exclusive copyright means they can continue to use their photos, while they give you ownership of them too.

Then, you can transfer your copyright ownership to the CC, and make the whole world happy :)

I don't know how to add new countries in the system? It would be useful to add "Imperial China", "Republic of China" as countries.

For older coins, I think the following category tree should be added:

Imperial China (221 BC to AD 1912)
|_ Guang Xu Era (1875 to 1908)
|_ Xuan Tong Era (1908 to 1912)
|_ Empire of China (1915 to 1916)

Republic of China (1912 to today)

I was browsing through the lunar series and noticed that the 1 Oz silver coins may need some better organization.

For example, both CCT854(40mm ox) and CCT855 (32mm Ox) are subtype of CCT853 (1997 1 oz silver lunar ox) which is in turn a subtype of CCT720 (1988 to 1999 1 oz silver lunar 12 coin set). The 1988-1999 series is the piedfort 32mm series. CCT854 should not be under that series. So, maybe CCT853 should NOT be a subtype of CCT720. If there is a need for the CCT853 1997 lunar ox type, maybe it should be directly under Silver Lunar or 1 Oz Silver Lunar.

the lunar series is rather complicated. There are 6 "types/series" of 1 Oz silver lunar
Below are the subtypes currently available when I search 1 Oz silver lunar.

   * 32mm 1 Oz piedfort round 1988 to 1999  (CCT720)
      ** CCT855 (Ox)
   * 40mm 1 Oz round 1997 - 2008 (CCT721) (CT736)
      ** CCT854 (Ox)
   * 40mm 1 Oz round 2009 -  (CCT737 should be renamed)
   * 1Oz flower 2001 -  (CCT729 should be renamed)
      ** CCT974 (rat)
      ** CCT975 (dog)
      ** CCT1069 (Ox)
      ** CCT1123 (pig)
   * 1 Oz fan 2001 -  (CCT732)
      ** CCT899 (monkey)
      ** CCT966 (horse)
      ** CCT978 (snake)
   * 1 Oz colorized round 1998 -
      ** CCT953 (dragon)
      ** CCT982 (snake)

It would be nice to have the types completely filled out and organized in a tree structure when we click the "show subtypes"

Under silver lunar, there are also additional series
   15g round 1981-1992 (CCT 706) that is fully organized
   2/3 Oz flower 1993-2004 (CCT 728) - My book shows the series should be 1988-2000
   5Oz round 1987-1999
   5Oz rectangle 2000-
   12Oz round 1993-1999
   1Kg round 2002-

I agree, and we're getting there :).
