What he/she collects
Members from India, Brazil, Bangladesh and Lithuania need to send first if they want exchange because of problems with their post offices. REALLY, nothing personal
If you want or need to send regular, you will NEED to send first, if we are not friends of course
I'm selling all coins from my collection, take a look if you want to see it. There are dozen rare coins too between the rest :)
What areas of coinage interest Me:
- High graded, low mintage or hard to find, rare.
- Errors, oddies and coins from "dead countries"
-Copper, Nickel, Iron, Aluminium, Stainless, Bi-Metallic and silver coins
What am I concentrating on at the moment:
- low mintage coinage, some of the smaller islands too and commemoratives.
- the Arab world and Africa
What I don't want to have:
- Eurocents(but i collect 1 & 2 €); - 10M + minted coins; basic easy to find and have from everywhere coins.
OLDER coins I exchange for older or something that I found interesting for my collection!!!
What he/she wants
I CAN BUY YOU every Bulgarian minted coin after 1881 in MS condition, if you need something that you really want in top quality and you like investments like this.
I'm collecting world coins by date and type,so you are free to PM me and do some swaps :)
You need to look at the comments on some of the coins, there is probably useful information for them :)
Users with below 10 finished exchanges send first or eye to eye swap if they want to receive as soon as me
If you want to swap with me you need to be serious at first and most of the time I reply fast so you need to be prepared :) I prefer coins in at least VF contition, so if your doubles have lower grade please inform me.
I'DON'T WANT euro cents,BUT i can find if someone wish to have some. If you want to swap with me, I preffer to swap at least 15 coins,because for just some pieces there's no point paying the shipping for both of us.

sirivinu's feedback on 30-Sep-2019
Excellent swap with Krish, hope to swap again & absolutely recommended.
Abasurto's feedback on 20-Sep-2019
Most of the times I overlook small problems or hiccups in all the swaps I am part of and, despite them, I rate 5 stars if I will swap again with that person knowing that this kind of rating gives full confidence to other people for a future swap with the person I am rating. So, I am very slow of considering giving something different of 5 stars, trying to give a lot of grace to my swap partners.
Kristian is strict with other countries' postal offices (India, Brazil, Bangladesh, and Lithuania, specifically as stated in his profile as of today), expecting to receive coins first if unregistered mail since he has had issues with them. Also, he sets a rule of waiting to receive coins to send coins if he is dealing with someone with less than 10 ratings, which I completely understand.
...And yet, when dealing with me, someone living in the USA and with more than 60 ratings he treated me the same way. I explain:
The very day I gave him a tracking number and having already dropped his coins in the mail he told me on a Tuesday, "I will try to send in the ongoing week, if I couldn't I will send it in the oncoming one". So I expected he would send the coins by that date and I even told him that if he wanted he could wait for my coins to arrive since I was in no rush of receiving the coins and he had already sent me pictures of them. He then replied that he was delaying sending the coins because "...of the post rules, you know, and im careful because I sometimes send a message per week that caches their eyes". When I read this I realized that he didn't trust his postal office and that it was ironic he was harsh on other countries but he wouldn't let you know that his Bulgarian postal office is not to be fully trusted.
After he didn't send me the coins by the time he had promised I ask him when he would send the coins and he responded me to wait longer (he didn't tell me for how long) but I did wait. Then he received my coins (again, from US to Bulgaria), gave me a rating and 10 days later he sent me his coins, after several follow-ups from me.
I finally received his coins yesterday. It took 15 days to arrive since the day he sent them but he purposefully delayed the shipping 3 weeks after the swap had been confirmed and he knew his package was coming.
Yes, his communication and negotiation were prompt as he promised in his profile. Yes, the coins were packed correctly and I don't think the postal office suspected these were coins. Yes, the coins were just as expected. Yes, I got the coins despite the mistrust on the Bulgarian postal office (The package even stated this was coming from someone else in a different address!). ...And yet, I have this bitter taste in my mouth and I don't feel comfortable of giving my full approval of swapping with Kristian. I am disappointed for the reasons I had already stated and I must say that personally I will be careful to swap with someone else from Bulgaria in the future and I may not swap again with him if he doesn't send his coins first. I felt disrespected and even doubted a couple of times I was getting my coins.
Kristian, I know you wish all of this doesn't impact your rating but I cannot overlook it. Sorry, but other people need to know my struggle with you.
