Prieure de Sion Posted March 6 · Member Share Posted March 6 Actually, it's a stupid question - but I'm still interested in how you handle it. I have just sorted a whole lot of new coins and had "difficulties" sorting the new coins, which had to be placed between other coins. Because up to now I had sorted all my coins with the portrait on top. But one (I) distinguishes the different coins better with the representation of the reverse. So I had to turn all the coins over so that I could better and correctly sort the new coins in between. Then I had thought that the front side on top is actually idiotic. Of course, I always buy coins because of a great portrait. But it's the reverse that interests me most. Because the reverse usually has the actual historical background. Therefore, it is usually (historically) much more interesting (for me). So I actually rearranged all my coin boxes and now all the portrayals of the reverse sides are towards the top. And indeed - I can distinguish my individual coins much better. And how do you do it? Are you more of an obverse sorter or a reverse sorter? Or do you sort this way and that way, depending on whether you like the portrait or the reverse more? 😄 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
