Coin collections can be fun. But if you need information on one of your coins, it's usually quite a chore. Not with the COIN COLLECTOR'S DATABASE. COIN COLLECTOR'S DATABASE is capable of recording up to one million entries tracking the type of coin, year and place of mint, condition and quantity minted; face value; present value and country of mint -- all with a couple of keystrokes. Once entered, you'll never have to thumb through a coin folder again. The system will report on the status of your collection just as easily. COIN COLLECTOR'S DATABASE comes with a sample file of coins, context-sensitive help screens to assist you in finding your way around and, as a bonus, a text file viewer to ease documentation reading.

INTRODUCTION Features As a coin collecting enthusiast examines his valuable possessions and places a value on each coin, according to manuals purchased in the local hobby store, the most common method of managing the information gathered is in a notebook. For the collector to locate a particular coin, or group of coins, the task of skimming each page for the item is quite time consuming. The ultimate solution for this task would be some type of system to allow the connoisseur to rapidly add, edit, locate and print this information. The Coin Collector's Database Version 1.01 has been designed to make coin collecting less complicated for the coin collecting enthusiast by placing all of the available coins into a fast and easy to operate system. This system has been designed for ease of use by any computer user, experienced or not, with speed, accuracy and efficiency as the main attractions. The Coin Collector's Database Version 1.01 will allow you to enter up to one million coins, or until you reach the maximum space available on your hard drive, with only a couple of keystrokes per entry. Rapid searching of one coin or a group of coins can be accomplished by using one of the three available methods. Reports can easily be produced by simple keystrokes to any EPSON compatible dot matrix printer in a sort order selected by you. The Coin Collector's Database Version 1.01 contains a context sensitive help system and an on-screen help line to eliminate the need to memorize the keystrokes needed to operate the system. To make things easier, all functions are accessed by the function keys available on your standard keyboard. Files The Coin Collector's Database Version 1.01 is distributed on one diskette.
