COINARCHIVES.COM VS ROMAN COIN PRICE YEARBOOK

Regarding CoinArchives.com, Regarding Coin Archives.com, Larry
Gaye writes: "I have used this site extensively and it truly is
valuable for the online coin business.  Most dealers specialize,
so this site gives answers to questions outside of the specialty
area of a dealer.  I love it and appreciate the work invested in it."

Morten Eske Mortensen writes:  The databank of the Roman Coin Price
Yearbook  is overwhelmingly more comprehensive than the
Coinarchives.com databank (see statistical weblink
ROMANcatlist.htm ).

Further, the data entries in the databank of the RCPY are indexed
and organized.  The data entries in the Coinarchives.com are NOT
indexed, but are 'only' amassed raw un-organized data.

1.175 public auction catalogs worldwide containing Roman coins
have been included in the RCPY databank.

Total for all 5 editions covering the full 10 calendar years 1995-2004
will be some 167.000 entries of hammer prices.

These 167.000 data-entries in the RCPY databank from 1.175 public
auction catalogues is for auction results solely of Roman republican
and Imperial coins from the period BC 280 - AD 254, while as Coin
Archives 'only' from 170 auctions includes 'only' 139.009 data-entries
which data however is for ALL types of ancient coins (Greek, roman
provincial, byzantine, and Roman Republican and Imperial BC 280 AD 254
and further AD 254-AD 475).

The RCPY 2005 edition includes 35.000 auction entries.
The RCPY 2001 edition includes 33.000 auction entries.
The RCPY 2003 edition includes 34.000 auction entries.
The RCPY 1997 edition includes 32.000 auction entries.
The RCPY 1999 edition includes xx.000 auction entries,
and will be published in 2006.
