2006 Conder Token SCAN CD: Gary Sriro's outstanding Conder Token SCAN CD has been updated. The new version is now available at $36 and $3 for domestic shipping ($4 for International). Gary writes:
"What's new....A LOT. I have added over 600 tokens this last year, more than 400 brand new ones and another 200 tokens were upgraded. The number of token scans on this CD now stands at 3,119.

The data base from which populations are generated grew from 27,000 entries to now over 33,000. Population numbers have changed on probably 95% of the scans, and for many tokens, the actual rarity has changed as well. Thus there has been a new update on the rarity levels, and up to what population number is allowed for each 5 rarity level. You will find hundreds of departures from the D&H book.

If you wish this new CD - it's first public offering - and several pages of informational enclosures, let me know."
I have Gary's 2005 Scan issue and am looking forward to getting the 2006 update. This CD is another essential addition to the reference library of any Conder collector or enthusiast. Gary can be reached at for orders or additional information ... or you can buy a 2006 Conder Token SCAN CD right now with PAYPAL using Gary's email address ( to make the transaction ... only $36 and $3 for domestic shipping ($4 for International).

Business or Hobby: A recent article addresses why so many people who try to turn a hobby or passion into a business so often fail. The author uses a number of real word examples including an online coin business and offers some sound advice such as ... "Find a niche market. There's nothing special about the coin business. It's like any other industry out there. You have to find items that somebody else wants to buy. Or you have to find an item and tell people why they should buy it. All you have to do is find that niche." And perhaps most important ... "Have fun". Read article ... A new resource for numismatists and coin collectors has been launched at . According to the owner, S.J. Miller, is designed to be a categorized listing of the best coin information on the Internet. Sounds promising, yes? Unlike a simple directory where, typically, only the main page of a site is listed, the administrators of study a prospective numismatic website and dig deep into the site to find the highest quality pages of information that are then included in specific categories in the NumisLinks directory. This 'Human Spidering' leads to very specific and high quality resources being listed in the index. Hmmmmm? Human Spidering? There are already several token sites listed ... all apparently put there at one time last May ... but speaking of 'high quality resources' ... I have submitted the Conder Token Enthusiast.
