    I already have just such a site - and then some - under development. It has been for some time, but I have a seven-month-old and a house that needs a lot of work. Still, the data model is pretty much complete and some of the data validation code is as well. Still, there is a lot of work to be done.

    Amazing thread. I don't collect these but I do collect large cents (recently started) from 1847-1857 and am curoius about the EDS rerferences and this helped me understand the issue better re: rusted dies, polished, erroded dies. Well, written post!! Thanks for taking the time to educate everyone on this topic.

    Ruben,

    Did I hear you mention a prize for second and third place, because there ain't no way I am in first anymore. I would be happy to take the bronze medal behind Fish and Drusus.

    Phenomenal Post that belongs in the Hall of Fame. BTW, what happened to all of the threads in the Hall of Fame, they are all gone.

    I'm thinking about it if I can find prizes. Would you take a picture of a toned coin in a frame :) That's an idea actually. I might add that to the prizes anyway.

    I noticed that the Hall of Fame is reset. There was a post by Clembo that had nearly a 100 nominations which was basically a "Why Coin Talk is Great and Changed My Life" thread. Despite that description, it was a brillant thread.

    In truth, I wish I could give everyone a prize. I also hope for world peace, and good will to Jews in their land, a trip to Mars in my lifetime, and the end of global warming.

    Or....maybe we can print and bind the entire museum and give it out as prizes.

    No, though I get asked that a lot. I think it's the beard.
