COMMENTS SOUGHT ON COINARCHIVES.COM

We don't often repeat a Featured Web Site, but coinarchives.com
has been mentioned a few times.  It is "a repository of coins
featured in major numismatic auctions.  It brings together the
text, images, and prices realized from catalogs issued by some
of the world's most prestigious coin firms. With this site, you
can search and view coin lots from a growing database of auctions."

A query for "Anton Scharf" matched 42 lots in the
World database.  A search for "Hitler" yielded 153 items,
"Mozart", 141 and "Platinum", 106. The search results page
includes a photo of each item (when available).  The photos
are beautiful, and each search result page makes for a nice
mini-catalog.

The database is still being updated - the most recent catalog
included is Auktionshaus H.D. Rauch GmbH Auction 77 on
2006-04-10, 1028 lots.
