Lost the coin flip insert that arrived with your coin? Not to worry, find your coin on one of the following pages, print, cut, and insert it. Your coin will have the word "Sold" inf ront of it and will be somewhere towards the end of the catalog. This Coin Flips Insert Page is the tool that I use to print your inserts. I recommend you use high quality paper for your coin inserts. I use parchment quality paper. It looks nicer and slides more easily into your coin flip.
Instructions: As your coin has been sold, it will appear with `SOLD: in front of the name. Save the page to your computer. Open the page in note pad or text editing software (in notepad, make sure to have "All Files" selected instead of "Text Documents". Find your coin in the text, then find and remove the reference to sold before the title including the following html
á·…<font color="#FF0000"><b>SOLD</b></font> which precedes it. Then open the file in your browser and print. Make sure to print in landscape view. Depending on your browser you may need to adjust your margin settings.
Note: the size of the tags may vary with the size and resolution of your computer screen. You may need to copy and paste the coin flip insert content into a word processing program, or save the webpage as PDF and try printing to different scales until you have a coin flip insert that is the right size for your coin flip. If you have any difficulty, email me and I will do it fo you. I can email you a word version template of any coin flip which is set to print to the right size.
Geraki is a mountainside town in Greece, Sparta, where my father was born. It is a town of archelogical significance with ruins dating back to the 3rd millenium BC.
The following list are my recommendations for online databases for identifying ancient coins. Online databases offer a significant advantage over physical references because they are easily searchable. Whilst physical references are helpful, they generally rely on some knowledge on the part of the reader. With online databases, no such knowledge is necessary. Identify part of the inscription, or symbol, and away you go!
The following are links to numismatic literature that is now avaialble online. Some of these references are essential to collectors of particular areas.
I have listed discussion boards where you can participate in discussions about ancient coins with other members of the community. I post on each one of them from time to time so make sure to say hi. Discussion boards have not kept up with what the most recent social media platforms and it is no surprise that they have faced declining activity and membership in recent years. What discussions boards offer above other social media platforms is an organised searchable history of past discussions. Your starting point before asking a question is to search the board to see if someone else has asked the question previously.
