As Mark says, go to the fake reports and click on the button in the top menu.

Hi,

I would like to know a little more about reporting decorum. Apart from the coin details Joe outlined at the top of this thread, the question is: Is it proper to report a coin if you do not own it or at least have held in in your hand? I see many coins offered on Ebay which are suspicious, to say the least, but I feel that you must personal knowledge of a coin before you report it. This way you can establish weight, an important factor, and the realistic appearance of the coin.
So, what are the rules?

Schatz

If that was a rule there would be hardly any coins in there. If you are not sure, don't add the coin.
Even if you ARE sure, ask yourself if you really know enough to report the coin or if maybe you don't and you shouldn't.
Overeager fake reporters can cause the whole database to be unreliabel but then again the fake reports are well-moderated by Martin.

Joe Sermarini:
If you aren't sure, post it on the boards for discussion.  

Joe Sermarini:
It seems to me that lately only a small fraction of the fakes confirmed here are getting added to the fake coin reports.  Please chip in and help by submitting reports.  Please look through old threads and find confirmed fakes that were not added and add them.  The fake coin reports need support from all our active members who use them and this discussion to keep them safe from buying fakes.
