Well, let's see who is up next. Hey, who has the darts? Come on guys. Quit playing around. We've got someone here who really wants to know something about coins. Give us a few minutes, Jim. Why don't you go ahead and start a new thread, and we should have the darts by then. All right wise guys! Who took the dart board?
PCGS has always been far too partisan. You either drink the koolaid, or you don't last long there. I technically have a forum ID there, but I only rarely post there.
CoinTalk is.... well, it's its own thing. There is an abundance of parking lot warriors posting their road rash coins, but there are also some really knowledgeable people here. A couple of recent additions (and some who have shifted more towards here than there) have significantly increased the expertise of these boards - names I know and love from the NGC boards. No doubt, I have my disagreements on these boards (I guarantee several members have me on their ignore list.... that's ok, I've got several of you on my ignore list too). But, overall, right now, this is the best forum I'm aware of.
May have to check it out. Quick glance looked interesting
My impression of that place is limited solely to when I do google searches for topics and that forum comes up as a link. My impression, based on this limited sample, is that it is quite a bit slower than it is here, the general knowledge level is lower, and its geared a lot more towards people who found a wheat cent in a hoard and have a basic question. Not a whole lot of high level scholarship or knowledge, although there are probably some knowledgeable posters who drop in from time to time.
For a beginner, its ok. For an intermediate, you've probably max levelled that place. An advanced numismatist will be downright bored there, from my impression.
If you have serious questions ask them. If I can answer them I will. (unless they have already been sufficiently answered by others already, I don't normally do a lot of "me too" posts.) I don't normally say much about grade or value though as they don't appeal tome.
Do I qualify? I post/answer questions there.
He's on the PCGS forum again, doing fine. You can ask him there.
I don't like the layout of CCF, either. I guess that's why I've never registered.
I can't even remember my password for CU. It's just as well. I'd probably get in trouble real quick.
But I like puppy dogs too.
Totally new management, but that doesn't mean you won't.
Wow realy I remember a thread of "how far can we get with the"
I cant remember the year of the Lincoln coin it start it with.
I dont know if that was u. But that's not cool wht they did.
Actually, I enjoy this forum but spend a lot more time reading the PCGS site because, as physics-fan says, the level of discourse seems higher there. But this is definitely a fun forum and any forum with Conder101 has a knowledgeable poster.
I'll try to see if I can find @Spence there and have him contact u here...
Hope they dont band me...lol
