Hi,

I have built a numismatic website prototype for treasure hunters, numismatists and hobby archaelogists. As of now I have uploaded the first 500 coins out of 100,000 ancient/modern coins.
Main purpose is to provide a free platform tailored for sharing and researching findings and artefacts.

I would appreciate any feedback you have.

Once you give me feedback I can integrate your suggestions or nice to haves. It's totally up to you how you would like to have the website.

Thank you and have a nice day :-)

What I would find absolutely worth its weight in platinum is a search facility that used the image of a coin. Upload a suitable close up photo and search for a match.

Wow. Would that ever be fantastic! I'm sure that implementing that would be a nightmare and cost hundreds of programming hours.

Hi Kaisercoins

First let me welcome you to thunting.com. I registered on your site to have a look at it and the first thing that I found is that you have coins and medals together, personally I would never think of looking in coins to find a medal. I would also have a section for memorabilia, although they are coins in some way.

@GoldDigger1950: Great idea! Altough it requires heavy image processing it would be a great feature. I'll see what I can do :-)

@xavier: Thank you for your welcome and your response! Very good point!
If I got you right you mean something like this on the very top of the filtering section:

[ ] Coins
[ ] Medals
[ ] ...
[ ] ...


Thank you guys for your answers!

 Smiley Yes that's it, it don't matter how many you have in there. Are you going to be only doing coins? because buttons are very often a subject of discussion too and if you can do it with the photo search like GD said it would be great.

If you follow Xavier's logic, you might want to consider a section for tokens also (although GD's proposed search functionality should search through all the sections since many people mistake tokens for coins).  I agree with my compadres, though, that your site has a whole lot of potential.  I am glad you've put some effort into it and hope to watch grow both in size and in value to the target communities.

There are already algorithms for picture comparisons so your task might be more of finding a host to make it a fast search. A hint. Don't do that fast image flashing thing you see on TV. That takes up huge amounts of processing time - about 65% or more. Just put up a note or image saying the search is in progress - please stand by.

Thanks for taking my suggestion seriously. We do get lots of requests to help research a coin or token here and I have occasionally used the Google Image search facility.

@xavier: Primarily coins in the beginning, but I'll progressively try to extend the scope to associated finds like buttons, tokens, fragments of pottery, etc.
@BitburgAggie_7377: Good point! Thank you!
@GoldDigger1950: True, I think it must be doable. Although it would take me a bit of time I could do the following in the meantime.
Most coins I have come with a weight field (in gram). I can easily add a note to each coin displaying what its weight is worth in platinum. Additionally, I can add this information and wrap it into a filter.

Adding this weight attribute to the filter section would allow a browsing by "worth of its weight in platinum/gold/silver etc."

Worth its weight:
[ ] > 50 GPB
[ ] 10..50 GPB
[ ] 5..10 GPB
[ ] 1..5 GPB
[ ] < 1 GPB

Please correct me If I got your idea wrong :-)
