Due to the volume of information that is processed to update the website and time constrains of the author, there is no guaranteed of response.

This limits the posibility of the author to make a valuation.

Photo contribution

If you wish to contribute with a photograph for reference purpose, you can send it by email at the address shown before.

The preferred file format is JPEG (or PNG) with low compression, and high resolution. Generally it's not easy to photograph coins minted with other metal than silver or have a Proof or shiny surface.

Some guide for the photographs are:
  • Scanned image (preferred): Resolution of 200-300 DPI (or more). This method is the best for banknotes and most cases of coins.
  • Digital Photo: Resolution of 1024 pixels of width that may be taken using a 3 Megapixels or more digital camera. This method is not recommended because the piece shape is generally distorted, the brightness is not uniform, and the flash may washout the colour.

This requirement helps this website to show as possible the best quality photo reference.

Expand the known banknote serial number interval

To improve the information about known banknote serial number interval, you can send the report by email, and include a photograph of the obverse only, which can be partial showing the serial number and date.
