How do you define rare?
After researching a bunch of coins and medals including the following, I've come up with my definition of rare.
Basically, it's something where you have a Full Census vs. Condition Census of specimens. For my own research, this likely means less than 10-12 specimens, 20 is probably the max. Above that, my cataloging interest will drop off, but others may still have interest.
Some of my threads include:
