On a post you said...
If you have a comment about something I said, please comment on the post. Comments are moderated only to prevent spam. All comments that are not spam are published especially if you do not agree with me! Please avoid using language that you would not use in front of a toddler.
How do I leave a comment on a post?
Comments and the form to leave comments are visible on the post’s individual page. If you are reading a post from the Front Page of the blog, click on the title to read it on its individual page. Yes, I know this is not the best way to do this, but I have not figured out how to force this layout to display comments or a link to make comments at the end of the post. I will work on that to see what I can do!
Can you tell me how much it costs to advertise on the Coin Collectors Blog?
Sorry, I am no longer accepting advertising for the blog.
I have a business proposition for you...
Thank you for thinking about me and the Coin Collectors Blog. While I am interested in expanding my business options it is not something I want to associate with this blog. This includes link swaps, sponsored articles, partnerships, and advertising.
Would you publish and article I wrote?
I do not accept contributed content except for reviews of numismatic-related apps on non-Apple devices. Well-written reviews of Android or Windows Mobile numismatic-related apps (with screenshots) would be greatly appreciated! Contributed reviews will be credited to the author and subject to my editing.
Would you review my book/article/app/etc.?
I will accept items for review. Please include as much information as you can about the item for review. If this is something I would be interested in reviewing I will send a mailing address. All mail is sent to a post office box. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Please understand that I do not have a lot of time and may put the item aside and never get to it. I will try but I cannot promise anything. Please note that items sent for review will not be returned. Reviewed items may be donated to organization(s) of my choosing.
I wrote to you, how come you did not answer?
Although I try to answer all email inquiries there are times when I miss a message. If you sent the note to an old gmail.com account that I used to maintain your message may have been lost. Other messages may have been buried in my spam folder without notice. If you would like to contact me, please use the form below. It will be sent directly to my inbox for my attention.
Because of spam problems shortly after I changed how to contact me, I had to add both the reCAPTCHA and passing the notes through a spam filter. If it is blocking your email then try using one of the alternatives below.
An alternative way to get my attention is to send a message on Twitter to @coinsblog. You can also try to add a comment to a post. Since comments are moderated to prevent spam, I will read and not post them.
Regardless of how you contact me, please give me a day-or-so to answer. Thank you!
Something is not working on your web site.
I apologize for the problem. Even though I tried to make everything work right sometimes it is hard to tell these computers to do what I want. When you send a description of the problem you found, please also let me know the operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 8, Windows 10, macOS Sierra, Ubuntu Linux, Android, iOS 7, etc.) and the browser and version you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer 9, Safari 9, Firefox 49, Google Chrome 53, etc.). I will do my best to fix the problem. Thank you for letting me know!
Are you interested in buying/selling some coins I have?
I am not in the market to buy or sell numismatic items at this time.
Can you help me identify a coin I have?
I can help identify most coins except ancient coins. I am not very good at identifying ancient. In fact, you could do better than ask me! For all others, fill out the contact form below and I will send a note with an email address where you can send FOCUSED images of BOTH SIDES of the coin.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not an expert on ancient coins. Most of the time I need help identifying ancient coins. If the coin you are looking to identify was made pre-1700, I may not be the best source to help you. Sorry!
