13 demo pages (below) documenting, why You can NOT use e.g. CoinArchives as basis for making larger economic decisions around purchases or sales of costly coins

- but most of the cheapskate market participants does not have a clue about that fact. Probably also not You ! And stupid ignorance costs money losses. L

For one huge list of the more than 1.300 international paper printed auction catalogues including Roman coins that currently are entered into the databank of The Roman Coin Price Yearbook covering the full 12 calendar years 1995-2006 take a look at this link:

Danish coin dealer arrestered March 2017 at coin show in Münich, since he had not bought ’knowledge’.

The coin dealer was not able to supply the German authorities with provenances for at least the last 20 years on his objects put for sale !

.

The main target of the police action in Munich was an Afghani citizen from Bronshoj (near Copenhagen), Denmark, who was selling a variety of coins and antiques, such as spear points and decorative items.”

 

and furthermore

The new law went into effect in 2016 and requires at least 20 years’ of provenance for objects of cultural importance, and requires an export license for objects that are more than 70 years old and worth more than €300,000 ($320,566 U.S.).”

NOTE: It seems to be a smart idea for coin dealers and coin collectors and employees at the auction houses and the cheapskate museum people to begin buying the neccessary Fach-Litteratur (including access to 'data bases' of auction sales of coins) to be able to find documentation on the provenances for the coins in previous auction catalogues and in other Fach-Litteratur.

 

It is much more pleasant to buy ’knowledge’ than to be sent to prison. J

Important note: Claiming ’ignorance’ won't prevent jail time.

Dansk mønthandler arresteret marts 2017 på møntmessen i München, da han ikke havde købt sig ’viden’.

Mønthandleren kunne ikke opfylde myndighedernes krav om mindst 20 års proveniens på salgsobjekterne !

 

- o -

 

NOTE: Det vil nok være en god ide for mønthandlere og møntsamlere og auktionshusmedarbejdere og de nærige museumsfolk at begynde på at indkøbe sig den nødvendige faglitteratur (herunder adgang til 'databaser' over auktionssalg af mønter) for at kunne finde frem til dokumentation om mønternes proveniens i tidligere auktionskataloger og i øvrig faglitteratur.

.

Det er meget rarere at købe sig til ’viden’ end at blive sendt i fængsel. J

Bemærk: ’U-videnhed’ gør ikke straffri.

On-the-new-law-requiring-provenances-for-at-least-the-last-20-years-on-coins:

New EU directive and new German anti terror law have hit all auction houses and all collectors of antiquities (including ’coins’).

 

Countries plundered demands their cultural treasures delivered back through EU law.

 

And German authorities can demand a minimum of 20 years of provenance – or alternatively you risk confiscation by the government of privately owned antiquities with the 'excuse': ’possibly formerly stolen by terrorists’.

;>)  Five reasons that private collectors and museums staffs do not need to possess the market data informations in the Coin Price Yearbooks:

 

A)    Private collectors and museums staffs do not mind  paying too much for those coins, which they bid on or buy.

 

B)    Private collectors and museums staffs do not mind  selling coins from their collections too cheaply.

 

C)    There is no reason, that private collectors and museums staffs should have qualified data information of the real ‘commonness’ of those coins, which they bid on or buy.

 

D)    There is no reason, that private collectors and museums staffs should have qualified data information of the real rarity of those coins, which they sell from their collections.

 

E)    There is no reason, that private collectors and museums staffs should have qualified data information, which can help to 'beat the market'. That kind of stuff is necessary only for the chosen, serious market participants.
