V3 2000 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 14, April 2, 2000, Article 10

FEATURED WEB SITE 

   This week's featured web page is the ANS coin quiz. 
   American Numismatic Society web manager Sebastian Heath 
   has set up an interesting guessing game, which numismatists 
   should find both amusing and educational.  It draws on the 
   Society's archive of computerized images. 

   "This first version is pretty simple... Choose one or more 
   departments, click "Try me..." and a new window will appear 
   showing only the picture, material, weight, and measurements for 
   a particular coin. (Actually, that information will only appear if 
   known). Look at the coin (or medal, etc.), try and identify it, and 
   then click "Show Full Info" to see how you did. 

   I put this together as a small digression while thinking more 
   seriously about the structure and content of our database." 
   To reach the quiz, go to the "Collections" heading on the front 
   page of the ANS web site and choose the "Coin Quiz" link.
