What he/she collects

In general, I collect VF-UNC XX-XXI Centuries standard circulation non-precious coins by type (not year nor mintmark).

Collections like this and per country that I have and want to increase or complete:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Russia (+Commemorative Circulation), Switzerland, the UK, and the USA.

Plus, at least one coin from every country/issuer in the 1900s.

I only collect by year and mintmark USA's Lincoln cents, Jefferson nickels, Roosevelt dimes, and Washington quarters. However, I do it to swap them later for coins that would complete my collection goals by country/type.

I have some banknotes to swap for coins, too. See my swap list here:
https://colnect.com/en/banknotes/list/swap_list/Alejandro-Basurto

If you are interested in knowing why I consider the 2010-2012 US quarters more valuable than the rest (2013-2018) check this post: https://en.numista.com/forum/topic10407.html#p748694

What he/she wants

** Swap partners, please note: **

1) I want coins in good shape. So, please, do let me know if your coins are in F or worse condition and it is not stated in your swap list. Conversely, you always have the right to ask for the condition of specific coins in my swap list, I have ~2000 of them to swap and it will be really hard to grade them all, so I do it on a swap request basis. For my grading, I use the Numista guide: https://en.numista.com/numisdoc/how-to-grade-my-coin-58.html. Take into account that this standard is laxer than the 70-point American system. I will definitely ask for the condition of the coins I am interested in if not stated or for any pictures/scans, you may have. I can also always provide scans or pictures.

2) INTERNATIONAL SWAPS: International package postage from the US is very expensive. I am open to international swaps, but they need to be either small (less than 3.5 ounces) in order to go as an ordinary letter, or as big as possible up to 8 ounces, as the price is the same (about $14 USD) for any package up to that weight. Registered mail is unaffordable (another $16 on top of the base price), so I can only swap using regular first class mail (which includes tracking if heavier than 3.5 ounces).
