This group is for the discussion of coin and banknote collecting from a
UK perspective (i.e. it is both a discussion forum for UK collectors on
any coin or banknote related topic, and a group for worldwide discussion
about UK and Commonwealth currency). Discussion about the collecting of
tokens and medals is also on-topic.
Advertising is forbidden, apart from SHORT (less than 20 lines) adverts
for those selling goods and services relevant to UK coin and banknote
collecting, but these adverts must not be posted more than once a month.
For long information, a pointer to a website or information about how to
obtain details is the correct method. The subject line for adverts should
ADVERT: ", and "
ANNOUNCE: " for event announcements.
Binaries & Formatting
Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are
forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or ftp site to which
a pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP)
may be used where authentication is important and should be as
short as possible.
Posts must be readable as plaintext. HTML, RTF and similarly
formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make your newsreader
comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.
