Catalog Code Information
State Code-Brewery Code-Catalog Number Size Sides Rarity Code
Date
State Code: Two letter abbreviation for the state
Brewery Code: Where possible, I used the first few letters of the brewery name
Catalog Number: Sequence number within the brewery, a lower number does not always indicate a coaster was produced before or after a higher number. It is based on when the coaster was submitted to the guides. Catalog numbers could also contain letters if the coaster is part of a very similar 'set' of coasters AND it was known to be part of a set when Catalog Numbers are assigned

Size: Inches or in some cases fraction of an inches. The Anheuser Busch Bud coasters are in centimeters to make it easier to identify those minor size differences

Sides: 1/0 - One sided coaster
..........1/1 - Two sided coaster, sides the same (different color considered a 1/2 coaster)
..........1/2 - Two sided coaster, sides are different
Rarity Code: 5 - Rare coaster, very few are known to exist
...................4 - A very hard coaster to find, surfaces occasionally at auctions or trade shows
...................3 - Tough coaster to find but most serious collectors will have it
...................2 - Can be found at most trade shows that have a decent amount of coasters
...................1 - At almost all brewery shows and at times can still be found at bars, beer festivals or general trading

Note - The rarity indicator is an interpretation of how often collectors have seen the coaster available. It should not be used solely for pricing since sleeves of rare coasters sometimes 'magically' appear that devalues the coaster significantly
Date: Date when the coaster was added to the guide or an approximate date based on a hand-written date on the coaster
When multiple dates are identified along with a different Catalog Number, this indicates that there are different dates printed on the coaster

Starting in February 2011 and when identified by the submitter, a (c) before the date indicates a date is printed on the coaster.
Therefore a "(c) 2011" "2011" would have different semantics. Without the (c) indicates a when the date was added to the guides. As always there are exceptions and not 100% accurate.
