I am new to the boards, sort of new to collecting. I collected pennies as a kid, and now am in that position of having more disposable income to get back in to collecting.
I am reading everything I can find, and these forums are great sources of knowledge. However, I have *never* seen a hobby / industry with more acronyms. I worked for a defense contractor as an engineer for a while, so that's saying something.
Has someone made a WYNK (heh) post listing definitions for all the acronyms? Not just big ones like TPG, but also slang terms like BB, etc.
Arch, if you're trying to condense the "Index", why can't you combine Ask NGC, Ask NCS & Ask PMG ? Anyone posting a question to this group could check a box to indicate the appropriate one. Chris
I just read this thread, and I think this is a great idea. I would also add the "Ask Numismedia" forum to the list, which I think was created after your post, Chris. Those forums are all so infrequently visited that for each of them to have a separate section is kind of ridiculous.
I reserve the right to change my mind with new facts, experience, opinions, or viewpoints.
