New coins, new comics, new pricing.

This update marks the biggest jump in new items supported in our databases in many months. We have added support for almost 1,000 new comic books and almost 2,000 new coins. Locating and researching any given coin or comic book on gets easier all the time.

And of course, April marks the beginning of the 2nd quarter for 2004, and that means we have once again recomputed our pricing data. This pricing update was driven by a record 200,000 actual sales. Our pricing data as most users know is the most realistic and accurate available. We are noticing some interesting trends, with some areas continuing to climb but other areas beginning to level off. Login and see how your collection value has been affected.

Coin designation varieties now supported

Coin users get another pleasant surprise this month, as driven by user demand, we now support separate database entries and values for all major designations, including:
  • Cameo and Deep Cameo designations for Proof coins
  • Prooflike and Deep Mirror Prooflike designations for Morgan Dollars
  • The Full Bands designation for Mercury Dimes
  • The Full Bell Lines designation for Franklin Half Dollars
  • The Full Head designation for Standing Liberty Quarters
  • The Full Steps designation for Jefferson Nickels
  • Red-Brown and Red designations where appropriate
Thanks to user tmbz for convincing us this should be our highest priority task in the coins category, and motivating us to get it done!


Don't forget, all you have to do is create a single Collection, Wantlist, or Salelist item during the appropriate month to qualify for our sweepstakes. Why not take a look and see what we're giving away (and gave away last month), free as always.

Thanks, we'll see you all next month.
