even more lingo

If the previous post about world coin lingo wasn’t enough, I just stumbled on an even more exhaustive glossary of coin collecting terms at the PCGS lingo page.

You can learn the meaning of such terms as burnishing, chasing, essai, moose, sweating and weenie. It can be a real help to know these, especially after reading or talking with a long-time coin collector who uses these words as if everyone knew what they meant.
