Abbreviations

#1 Unread post by gooddie »

I've only been on Coin Help for a little while and noticed members posting questions using abbreviations. Can someone please direct me to a link where I can familiarize myself with these terms? I don't know what I'm looking for. I still don't know what AFLAC is.

Most of the unrecognizable numismatic acronyms used here are just "MADE UP" by the original posters…

I don't want to get into the reason why they do this here

At the risk of sounding rude,…
A majority of individuals proclaim that they are "Experts" in the area of numismatics. This is just what it is.

Using their 'Homemade' acronyms,… makes them feel that when using these acronyms, … rises them above their actual level of numismatic competence.

I can't believe you actually made me answer that

Thanks Daniel, very informative .
I only use a few Abbreviations , One is DEFDAM ( definitely damaged ) , PMD ( post mint damage ) and JMO ( just my opinion ) . These are just basic forum abbreviations ( abbrev ) . I'm sure there are more but can't remember off the top of my head. If there are more , please list them .
If you want to go to another site for just some info like coin community , that's your choice . I just don't recommend joining though . JMO .

Magnificent responses by all of you. Thank you so much. I'm learning by leaps and bounds. It's like sometimes things look complicated when actually it's simple after you explain things. Thanks again.
