I'm sure this is a topic covered here, but I can't seem to find a specific thread. Basically, I am a confirmed world coin collector with terrible records (working on that), but have slowly bought a couple ancients. The numbers are low, so I'd like to start off on the right foot, and in an organized way in my efforts to keep my documentation done properly. Does anyone use pre-fab software (preferably Mac oriented)? Like Coin Exchange? Use an excel or other type of spreadsheet/database? If so, what do you use to populate and in what order? So far I've been making shots like this, copying from the auction or seller's tag like this one (or just cut/pasting it from a screenshot for an auction or seller's site), plus keeping a screenshot of whatever receipt I have. Paper receipts are currently residing in scattered piles in my usual fashion. Somehow though individual document folders holding the combination photo, any other photos, plus receipt copies seems a bit incomplete or inefficient. A database or spreadsheet of some sort would be nice. Any recommendations for what data is everyone's favorite to document, and HOW the documentation is stored/arranged would be very educational--and helpful for someone just getting into ancients.
