Much to my consternation, it appears that when Joe upgraded the website I lost many of my descriptions and am left with just photos!

If you lost the descriptions only in the "album view" and not in the "single coin view" it's not a big problem.
Just open the "single coin view", click "edit description", don't change anything, click "Apply changes". Now the description of the in the album view should be there again for this coin. Maybe you have to refresh the page.

I had to do this for at least 50 coins.

BTW: Wrong greek letters in the album view can be repaired in the same way.

I responded to your other post regarding the Ghaznavids before I noticed this post. Nice coin, Virgil. Stkp

Skolot,

Your inquiry prompted me to glance at my medieval Armenian gallery
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=4626

Much to my consternation, it appears that when Joe upgraded the website I lost many of my descriptions and am left with just photos!

I don't have time now to answer your question but hope to do so. Remind me if I don't get to it.

Fake Coins and Notorious Fake Sellers / Re: Nomination NFSL numismatiklanz
« Last post by Stkp on Today at 01:06:59 pm »
. . . some recent Roman purchases have been incorrectly listed under either the wrong emperor (as if a template was reused without overwriting it) or the RIC is just plain wrong. . . . they do not respond to messaging on eBay.

Their incorrect eBay attributions extend to the Islamic and medieval European coins as well. I bid on the coin and not the attribution.

The one time that I had occasion to question them about a coin -- after it was already in hand -- they responded to my email and offered to reverse the purchase for a refund (I ended up keeping the coin; it was an interesting contemporary counterfeit).

Books and References / Re: Any books on Afghanistan Ancient/Medieval Coins?
« Last post by Stkp on Today at 01:00:23 pm »
Virgil,

There is of course Stephen Album's Checklist of Islamic Coins.

I can't offer much assistance with respect to the Ghaznavids (I only have one coin). However, I have a gallery that includes Jitals from the Shahis, issued in parts of Afghanistan and Northern India. https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=4062
Robert Tye's book may be of assistance.
