What he/she collects

coins from all over the world, only by type, not by year. Currently having more than 9,000 different types, there is still some way to go...
Just recently I came more into including transportation token, like subway, tram, toll, ferry, parking, or anything that has some (semi-) official character, other than for example gaming token or token for the coffee machine, which I am not interested in.
Banknotes from all over the world (unc) - nothing specific and also not from every country. I go for countries that I have either been to or that have some nice designs or that in any other way I am interested in - I can offer unc 5 or 10 EUR notes and for regular banknotes would mainly go for "face value versus face value".

Some philosophy about the balancing of swaps, after having gathered some experience out of my first 100 swaps since I started about 18 months ago:

I understand that many members here try to evaluate a swap based on some kind of catalogue prices, mainly KM or NGC.
I think it is fair enough, but honestly spoken, it is not my preferred way.
Basically there are coins in my swap list with high catalogue value, which I managed to get for a cheap price somewhere or which do not mean quite much to me. On the other hand there may be cheap coins, I am highly interested in, so for which I am ready to give a comparatively high price, or highly priced coins I would not swap for 1 EUR.
So the pricing I apply for myself is not always rational compared to catalogue prices and I may be more open to give away "good" coins for low exchange value or more reluctant with others. (besides the fact that I also find prices obviously being wrong, for example way below melting value...).
I handle this challenge that way, that if someone tells me he sees a swap balanced by catalogue values and I can agree on my "individual opinion", I will accept the swap, no problem.
Occasionally I do indeed see that a swap is more to my favour based on pure catalogue values - then it's the other ones choice to take it or leave it. I also agreed to swaps involving coins I was highly interested in, that were unbalanced to my disadvantage. In the end both parties need to feel comfortable with a swap, no matter on what basis that comfort is reached...
It is never my intention to cheat anyone and I think that is also reflected in my ratings. Also I have no problem, if we cannot agree on a swap and let it go for this time...

What he/she wants

I am looking for swap opportunities from all over the world. Mostly I am interested in as many missing coins as possible from the other one's country.
My collection is based on types, not years. Typically I will select the cheapest year and/or the year which my counterpart has the most coins of (this gives the chance to my counterpart to offer the greatest variety of years possible and enabling further swaps with others).
I try to respond to messages as soon as I can (sometimes I cannot do it faster as I am travelling a lot), and actually prefer quick deals rather than highly negotiated ones.
I do expect coins to be at least VF+, but would clearly go for XF or higher, please do not send any wrecks (or at least tell me before). I am ready to send scans of my coins, if requested.
I have some 2 EUR commemoratives on offer, but need to make clear that for these I mostly have their comparatively high face value in mind and will not be able to swap like "one commemorative 2 EUR versus one or two commemorative coins from somewhere else with only little face value".
In order to make it worth paying quite some money for postage I prefer to do larger swaps of 40+ coins (as I pay the same postage for any weight between 50g and 500g - so the closer to the 500g, the more cost-efficient for me...).
Except for very small swaps I will only send registered and do expect the same vice versa. Track ID will be provided, although German Post is not part of 17Track and I realized that in many countries German IDs cannot be tracked once the item is in that country.
Although I do not really collect stamps, I am always happy to receive envelopes with stamps, which I keep as a whole, as souvenir. I try to use German commemorative stamps on my envelopes.

5/55/55/55/55/5 fabatka's feedback on 16-Jul-2018
I'm lost for words! It's really difficult to properly rate Andreas because all superlatives have already been used. The highest possible ratings beyond the strictest standards in all categories, and add such priceless qualities as honesty, sincerity, professionalism and friendliness. And also add the touch and flair of always choosing the right gift. Herzlichen Dank vielmals, Andreas!

Bavariat, is a splendid colleague, patient, understanding and very friendly, I recommend widely to the entire community. Through an exchange very sui generis, especially taught me that when you have a dream, miracles can germinate around the corner and you have to water them with more generosity following the example ... Thank you!
