How to Use My eBay Store
This is a tutorial that is very necessary for anyone that
decides to search my store for coins. Having reached over 10,000 items, it is
advisable to know and utilize the features that are built into each of my
listings. My goal is to make it easy and fun to put together even a large coin
collection. A lot of work and thought has been placed in order to make it be
best experience possible for you to find exactly what you may be interested in
and at the best possible price. There are collectors for all types of varieties
of coins, so every title is easy to search for and narrow down to a specific
focus of interest.
You can easily find this guide again in the GUIDE on HOW TO USE
MY STORE link at the top of my store navigation pages and below the self-evident
banner on all my listings.
Quick store search functionality is available in all my
listings, and the banner with the large letters is self-evident that it will
take you directly into my store.

http://stores.ebay.com/Authentic-Ancient-Greek-Roman-Coins and press the
keyboard buttons (on PC) CTRL and D simultaneously to pull up your add bookmark
screen to easily find my store in the future.
How to Find Specific Coins Again
< - The "i" number is unique item number that I use and is in
the title of all my listings and also above the picture in them. This allows you
to write down this number and find the coin easily in the future. As an example,
you can type i46026 into the www.eBay.com search box and this coin would
come up should you want to find it in the future.
The Listing Page
Notice the item number is repeated above every picture. Also
note that if you click on the picture of the coin it will enlarge.
Below the picture, you will see certain terms underlined. The
underlined terms are links to search my store for that specific term. The
benefit is that if for example you want to look at all of my coins of a certain
ruler, you can click it and find all of them. If you encounter a Roman emperor,
and click on the underlined term you can see all of his coins. The underlined
termed of "Roman Emperor" brings you to a page that lists every single emperor
(at least almost) and the same for the underlined term "Roman Empress". So the
benefit is that you can browse the emperors of all time periods without having
to type in the terms yourself, or knowing their names. It can be a learning
experience on it's own. This is also a great way to build up an entire
collection of Roman emperors of all time periods.
The descriptions are done with top-level professionalism. The
weight is given in grams and the size is given in millimeters. 1 cm = 10mm.
The reference gives you places where you can find a coin with
the design pictured on the coin in some specific book on the subject. When I
write the term var., it means variant or similar to another example I have
found. Some coins do not have any reference works with the same obverse and
reverse types as too many different varieties exist, or in some cases it may be
an unpublished type. This is especially true for the Roman provincial issues and
some Greek coins. Roman Imperial coins usually do have references.
Left Navigation Bar
There are a lot of navigation links that are given on the left-hand side of
my store page for you to scroll through. Take some time to familiarize yourself,
and find many important links given on important topics you may be interested
in, or for you to learn about. First you will see different categories given.
After that, you will see a variety of topics that you may also find very
interesting. As you scroll, you will find a variety of topics that you can
search my store for by clicking or go to an article or more information on that
Upper Navigation Bar
This bar takes you to all sorts of articles on the topic of ancient coins. If
you click the "Roman Collecting Guide" at the top, you will find a list
that is complete or almost complete with every single personage who had a coin
minted for them. This allows you to quickly narrow down one of each emperor and
empress as an example. This is possibly the most affordable way to collect
because you can look through many examples quickly.
You can type in specific terms and it will find that term in the title. If a
term may be in my listing but not in my title, click the box that says, in
titles and descriptions.
NOTE: eBay auto-corrects some spellings, so for some of the terms
listed, or you search for, you may need to click the [ Return to original
search ] link to actually see the coins available.
Sorting by Price
If you click on the text "Price" (which is blue and clickable and has a
triangle pointing up or down) you can can switch between sorting the search
terms by lowest or highest price.
With the benefit of being able to use all the search
functionality, articles, top-level descriptions it is my goal for you to have
the best possible experience. Giving the most amazing time-saving 21st century
tools of convenience for this hobby stretching the millennia. Enjoy.
