No reason for this question, no reason at all...

If someone were to make another website for doubled die listings, what could make it stand out from the already existing sites like varietyvista, doubleddie, and coppercoins? It would be pointless making something that already exists.

Would organizing doubled dies, so that similar-looking ones are in the same place, be useful?

Any thoughts?

More examples of each variety. With all the excellent coin photography going on here on this board and on eBay and elsewhere, why not list a doubled die, give it's history and class and all that info, and then continually add more images of verified examples of the DD as they become available.

Pretty much no need for new web sites. Just support your favorite ones. Offer assistance if needed. Ask them what they need? Become a great teacher. A lot of new ones coming in right now.

I think a new website and even the existing websites, could take a lesson from CopperCoins. What could be better than entering a date, mint, and denomination to see all the varieties and errors on any particular date mint denomination?
Also a section about different types of errors.

Maybe prices on each die variety and state of the coin. So like if it were AU50, it would have the price of that so you know if it's worth anything or not. Also tell how common the die varieties are, or how uncommon they are

Coppergold, that is coppercoins.com. If you look at each listing, prices are listed. That give you a good idea as to the population/value ESTIMATES for each of their listings. They also cross reference other known listings for each of their listings. The only thing NOT shown may be the various die states, die pairings, markers ...all the minutiae that only coin geeks get a rise from, the rest of us have no need for TMI!

I would love to see one sight which combines everything similar to Wexler and Variety Vista but it's hard to imagine it ever happening. I think the main issues are funding and manpower. Unless we all committed to paying substantial monthly or yearly membership dues to support 3-5 fulltime attributers, photographers, and site managers, I just don't see the perfect site ever coming about.

Completeness: Don't reach so broadly that you'r forced to present incomplete data for each listing. Concentrate, even if it means only one issue year at a time.

Quality. Create imagery of sufficient detail to clearly illustrate what you're showing. 400px full-coin images and 200x200 details don't show me how to identify the coin. Find and illustrate the markers which allow identification when the most important details are obscured.

Accessibility. Don't cram too much into one space, nor flood me with links. Pay attention to logical, progressive layout. And include an Attribution Guide, however that best works for what you're offering.

There probably is already one out there, But I'd love to see a site for every variety for each denomination coin in one place. Without all the numbers. I don't know what a 16-25-17-thglp-4rq is.Just tell me what it is in "basic terms". 1979 D grease filled nickel!

The sites need a UPC (United-Product-Code) A set of numbers for all the listings. That would take a long time to compile to match up all the different locations. Some sites align some codes. But with the more sites coming out there it makes it harder to match up. Coppercoin.com used the older CONECA RPM (orange) to start their RPM guides to match them up at first, but added new ones to teir listing after that book numbers were filled. The biggest problem is that new varieties are still being found all the time. So somewhere down the road, they may all join up in the future to accomplish this. But new finds always add new numbers to the lists.
