What he/she collects

GREAT BRITAIN - Pre-decimal issues

RHODESIA, including Southern Rhodesia and Rhodesia & Nyasaland. (gone but not forgotten)

THIRD REICH issues and NDSAP items.

Leprosarium coins and tokens.

US coins although this is not a priority.

Items relating to the glorious Confederate States of America, the ante-bellum South and the War of Northern Aggression.

I also collect stamps (3rd Reich & British Empire pre 1937), money boxes, low cost vintage banknotes, scripophily, wives and guns, lots of guns.

What he/she wants

As above, however I already have most of the mid/late 20th century issues.
Looking for equitable trades with the US and with Canada and those parts of Europe with reliable mail if the value justifies the shipping costs. Swaps with newer members will be considered on the strict understanding that your parcel will be mailed, opened and inspected before I mail anything.

I am NOT interested in trades with collectors looking to squeeze every last cent from a swap, or those looking to create drama over a couple of Sheldon points. This is my pastime, I do it for enjoyment not to hustle a quick buck here and there. Relax, enjoy the hobby.

I'd like to build the kind of relationships where one day my grandchildren will be trading coins with yours.


Swaps are still welcomed if you have the coins I'm looking for. (see above) I will occasionally make a trade for an exceptional coin or two from areas outside of my main interests or if all else fails then junk silver is always welcome @ 100% of current spot price.

Prices of most coins are in the comments field and are based on a common sense interpretation of NGC/Krause values.

Perfect coins. Phil is awesome to work with. I very much like his style and anyone trading with him should see it as a lesson in how things should be done. I really like that each coin was in a flip with the grade, YR,WHERE,etc....really makes it easy to check them in your system anywhere, even on a plane. Thanks Phil
