I'll continue to review any additional suggestions and corrections for the next update.

The FAQs contain a hyper-linked (clickable) table of contents. This will also optionally display on the left side of the screen in the Adobe reader. I've removed numbering to allow easier ordering of items.

Additional good sharp clear illustrations of the topics will also be appreciated! You must own the images and donate their use to

I'll work at regular intervals to update the FAQs so that we have a valuable and responsive resource for new collectors.

Compressed PDF (about 900 kb) and full resolution (2.3 mb) are attached. The full resolution document is suitable for printing at 300dpi or downloading to your phone or tablet.
