No.  Google now requires any page that has a login form to  be secured using SSL.  Since I don't force SSL on the site (though there are both a http and https versions) all indexing of non-SSL pages with a login form were being penalised.  Now I simply force SSL on the one page.

Valuations and Grading / Re: 2016 General Issues Catalogue
« Last post by Proteus on March 25, 2017, 01:33:22 AM »
Guys, I have been stuck on catalogue values for the Philippines because the latest catalogue has added multitudes of new variations, mostly replacement banknotes, with some specimens and proofs thrown into the mix.  As a result, instead of simply adding catalogue values, I've had to add nearly a hundred new listings for the Philippines, and I am probably only about two thirds of the way through.  I absolutely hate when the catalogue does stuff like this, but it is what it is.  Anyways, progress is slow, but is progressing.

I was like: ooooooh!  He owns this one?  Nice! ... then I finished reading your post.  :P

I purchased two of the Costa Rican notes from your initial post.  Haven't arrived yet, but I am excited to receive them.  I also purchased a couple of other Costa Rican "Specialised Issues" banknotes.  I may be changing my ways, when it comes to Specialised notes ...

Not that it really concerns anyone that much, but I have finally found and fixed a bug on the banknote news pages.  I've been looking for this bug for about two months now, and have been frustrated for the duration of the search.  Today I fixed it.

I recently purchased some banknotes from Noteshobby, one of my favourite sellers, and I did not receive them.  The seller refunded the money, but has now discontinued shipping to Canada.  :(   <------ super sad face, seriously

Due to Google !!!FUCKING!!! around (pardon my language, but Google is really screwing with a lot of my stuff this year) I can no longer have the login form at the top of every page of the website.  I've had to change to a "Login" button that directs users to a login page.  Not a huge change, but just giving you all a heads up.

Buying Paper Money / Re: Fake banknotes on Ebay

I've noticed fake specimens now and then.  As I understand it, specimen banknotes should NEVER have regular serial numbers.

All the specimens are fake, just a specimen stamp on non specimen banknotes
