What Idolenz collects

Swap with Idolenz

Idolenz doesn't want to make swaps for the moment.

What Idolenz wants

Common circulation coins should at least be in a good VF condition (descriptive grading) for old or scarcer coins there is more leeway.

Sorted by priority:
1st - Japanese years and types that I am missing
2nd - German and Austrian coin types that I am missing
3rd - Occupation money (coins and bills) from WW1 & WW2
4th - Coins from as many countries I can get
