Our work should be innovative and entertaining.
We do not care if you are a rich collector or otherwise, collecting coins should be an individual pastime without peer pressure.
As we work in hand struck coins a coin with ALL the attribution features of the coin in any condition should be worth more in the marketplace than a "pretty" coin with parts of the inscriptions and data missing. (possibly due to die that is larger than the coin flan).
The modern practice of coin grading (slabbing) should note if an inscription is incomplete and collectors should be aware of this note.
On a number of coin grading and coin data sites they advise whether a coin is rare, common etc. However many so called common coins from the subcontinent are uncommon and even rare to find with all the attribution identifiers on the flan.
Take care when buying because the market is becoming more sophisticated over time and with hand struck coins FULL attribution to astute collectors is more important than "prettiness".
