What he/she collects

I collect anything that interests me, but mainly European coins (by type) from between roughly 1815 and 1945 that I don't already have. I don't take coins that have been holed, but otherwise condition does not matter to me. I am also interested in most banknotes from before 1945, and military medals from any country of the same era.

Je collectionne toutes les monnaies qui m'intéressent, mais je cherche principalment, des pièces européennes (par type) de l'époque environ 1815 à 1945 que je n'ai pas déjà. Je souhaite pas des pièces trouées, mais autrement j'accepterai des pièces dans n'importe quel état. Je cherche aussi des billets mondiaux pre-1945, et des médailles militaires de la meme période.

What he/she wants

European coins and colonial coins (before 1945), as well as banknotes and military medals from the same era that I don't already have.
Update: I no longer have the spare time for swapping on Numista, thanks to my studies and work. Thanks for understanding!

We agreed on the swap with the value I think $100+.

When I gave my address I clearly asked CassTaylor to send registered. Additionally it was a clear statement in my profile that in case of non-registered letters a counterparty must send first. I sent registered.

After this CassTaylor claimed that she had sent coins with non-registered letter. The coins have never arrived
[I know that CassTaylor will reply that she has a statement in her profile that she doesn't send registered, but she was the first who requested a swap + I'm 99% sure that this statement appeared there only after our swap + ... see below]

I requested for compensation, CassTaylor promised to send some coins with the value similar to the value of those on the swap minus the cost of registered letter. But I received some very simple coins with overall value of 2-3 dollars max (some simple pre-euro, modern USA 5-10 cents, modern Moldova, some holed and bad-conditions aluminum replicas of something and one token)...

I think that this is enough to make such rating.

I also suppose that the first letter has been never sent because the price for sending the second (registered) letter was written on the envelope and it was quite low, according to the web-site of Honk-Kong Post the difference between registered and non-registered letters is about a couple of dollars. Therefore, it was not truth what she said about the price, it was not truth what she said about a compensation + She was previously accused in unfair things on Numista forum: https://en.n

I HIGHLY recommend in case you want to have a swap with CassTaylor to request to send first and to send by registered letter.
Reply from CassTaylor on 7-Aug-2019

I do not live permanently in Hong Kong and I am not familiar with the postal fees here- the cost of tracked shipping I cited initially was that of DHL Express, not the Hong Kong Post Office. My host agreed to send the second package for me at the Hong Kong Post Office, and had I known the price difference at the Post Office at the time I would almost certainly have agreed to send tracked.

And indeed, the disclaimer in my profile appeared after we confirmed our swap, after another member had not received my coins, so that other swap partners living in countries with similarly unreliable post (see my review from VintageCoin) would not waste their time offering me swaps. Note how I have not received similar swap complaints sending unregistered to countries such as France, Italy or Germany, but only to Russia and North Macedonia.

Finally, I mentioned SPECIFICALLY that the compensation coins would NOT be of the same value as the coins you initially selected- and you agreed, saying "something is better than nothing". I'm sorry to hear my first coins were lost, and I take the blame for not listening when you first insisted I send tracked, hence why I agreed to compensate you at all, out of sympathy- but I cannot in good conscience agree with the rest of your belligerent assessment.

Waiting almost 2 & 1/2 months , still nothing arrived. CassTaylor said if nothing arrives he can send another letter with similar coins like the previous , but many people think i do this on purpose , like i receive the letters and ask for more as compensation to get more and more...
I'll do no grade, rather than 0 stars just because of the good will of Cass that said he will send another letter , that of course i refused it :)
Willing to do another swap, but this time if he sends registered letter :)

Best of luck, Dino..

Hi Dino,

I'm very sorry to hear that the coins got lost in the mail, although I did mention in my profile that I don't send registered. Thanks for understanding and best of luck to you as well,
