What he/she collects

2 important things:
- please DO NOT confirm the swap BEFORE I send you pictures of all coins we agreed and say: Ok, we confirm
- I DO NOT collect the coins in bad condition, please exclude / skip all coins with stains, dirts, discolored parts, greens, corrosions, rust, oxidations, scratches, illegible texts, bent, with dents etc since a beginning if I ticked them from your swap-list.
my wishlists:
Coins I'm looking for:
- (enter 2 times in a browser if not opening from the first attempt)
Bank notes I'm looking for: (enter 2 times in a browser if not opening from the first attempt)

Short info to swap with me:

this is ok for me in any direction if the swap in general suits me:
comm Euro ⇔ any coins
UNC ⇔ not UNC
Proof ⇔not proof
silver ⇔ non silver
coins ⇔ bank notes (my notes swaplist:
and I can swap my stamps for your coins or notes (stamps to stamps is not interesting for me)

After I've made my choice and checked coins interesting for me from your swap-list please add all the grades in the comments where they are missing and deselect from your side of the check-box:
- all coins which are reserved for other or not available for swap with me (or you do not want to swap);
- all coins with a grade lower than F (fine) for pre-1900 coins and all coins with a grade lower than VF (very fine) for coins older than 1900.
- all coins marked as proof or marked as varieties if you put them in a swap list mistakely (because it often happens and I expect indeed proof or variety if I requested it), year, mintmark are IMPORTANT. If the coin is originally in a set, box, package, sealed please warn me if it will come in a different way.

- strictly the registered mail with a track number, no exceptions;
- Users with: Number of ratings less <100, average rating less <10, with no swap activity over 4 months or from non EU, Canada, Australia, N.Zealand, Israel, Japan send first (nothing personal) and I send after the letter reach me;
- I do not put stamps at the envelop because the type of maling I use doesn't not allow that;
- I can answer not immidiately (even can take 3-4-5-6 weeks) so please be patient;
- After we agreed; it can take a while until I find all coins and send you scans (especially if a deal is large) so please be patient
- Messages like: "you will not be poor if you add yet a few coins, please, please, please" = swap's cancelling :)

- At the moment I suggest 3 options to swap, so please inform me which option you prefer to start:

☛ option 1: Most fast and a maximal amount of coins will be in a deal. I suggest you a number of coins from my side (for coins which are available from your side according to my whishlist) which I can give you. If you agree - we do it. If you don't agree then we can switch to option 2 or option 3 below or cancel the swap;

☛ option 2: More slow and less coins will be available from my side. I suggest the summary commercial value which I guess is ok for me (for all coins in total, which are available from your side according to my whishlist) If you agree with this summary valuation of your available coins by me then you can choose the same total value of coins available from my side for such option. If you don't agree then we can switch to option 1 or option 3 or cancel the swap;

☛ option 3: Most slow and only part of coins could be swapped. We do the valuation according to ngc (Krause) ( ). You simply get the same value of coins which I can accept for such swapping option (for coins which are available from your side according to my whishlist) in total. If you agree - we do it. If you don't agree then we can switch to option 1 or option 2 above or cancel the swap.

- if you want a lot of coins from me better choose first 20-40 most wanted to force the swap instead of making changes during negotiations
- please warn me if you have any limitations (swap Euro to only Euro, silver only to silver etc) it will save time for both
- please DO NOT confirm the swap BEFORE I send you pictures of coins we agreed about else we have to open the new swap and both loose time
- please DOUBLECHECK the scans of coins I send to you to be insure with all dates, details, grades, varieties, alloys etc and feel free to ask details before confirming to avoid things like wrong date or so (time to time it can happen due large amounts of swaps)
- please use when describing the parcel: "tokens" and value maximally 5$, not more!

- Buying coins from me:
- I can sell nearly all what you see in my swaplist, price=€ (in the comment's fields, if there no value in € , ask me to add) + € 3 package/porto if the parcel's weight (netto) is until 75g. If the payment is byPayPal then + 6% over the total.

☺ = friendly low values, take your chance :)

More detailed info to swap with me.

well... now will be many letters but it is important to read to avoid questions and save time during the swaps with me:

Starting a swap with me:
- It would be better (and faster) if you send me a swap offer with coins you want instead of just a letter about swap.

- Would be perfect (if possible) if the swap messages will be in English. I'm fine with getting them in French, Spanish... Moon, Martian, whatever :) but the google translator sometimes plays really bad jokes. As more changes and negotiations during the swap you make deleting coins there adding here and so on, as longer the process takes because to re-calculate it will take time, so to force things is better to orient at the first selection of my coins you made in the first offer in the beginning of swap (and it is really much better that you firstly mark the most wanted coins from my swap list since a beginning of the offer than change your decision a few times during a swap). Sometimes i can answer not immidiately (even can take a week or 3 or even 6 due my work and amount of swaps going parallely) so be patient:)

Quantity of coins to swap:
- I prefer to swap with at least 40-50 or more coins in one time (not that it is a strict rule but preferable). Due the post weight gradations to pay (incl. envelope) I also usually try to stop at points: 85g, 235g, 485g. what is most optimal for me to send. To swap just a few coins if they are common is not interesting for me (just because the post expenses will be too high) but it can work with very high value coins though.

Reservation of coins:
- Once I've got the swap offer (and if it is interesting for me) i put for coins I'm ready to swap (in frames of this certain swap) the pre-reserved status to make them not available for other offers from swappers. If no any responce during 15-20 days this status for these coins will be off and coins return back to the swap list to be available for swapping for other members again (means that a swap is refused).

Varieties, errors, types of the edge:
- If they are not specified in the catalogue you can find that info in the comments.
- Type A: the text at the edge reads when the reverse is up
- Type B: the text at the edge reads when the reverse is down
* for all countries except French pre-Euro coins, they have own definition of A/B types.

- For 2 Euro coins with a specific star:
-- Type A:
1A: star 1 emplacement A (✫⇅)ᘖ☆☆ᘔ
2A: star 2 emplacement A (✯⇅)ᘖ☆☆ᘔ
1B: star 1 emplacement B ᘖ☆✫ᘔ
2B: star 2 emplacement B ᘖ☆✯ᘔ
-- Type B:
1A: star 1 emplacement A ᘔ ✫☆ ᘖ
2A: star 2 emplacement A ᘔ ✯☆ ᘖ
1B: star 1 emplacement B ᘔ ☆☆ ᘖ (✫⇅)
2B: star 2 emplacement B ᘔ ☆☆ ᘖ (✯⇅)

- I am not the expert in grading, that is what I am basing on:
As nowadays grading is quite a difficult art and time to time can cause discussions between different collectors who may have conflicting opinions, I make a picture of coins before sending usually . So you can see the grade yourself to change a deal before sending.

(!) once again - better ask twice for a scan to avoid things like discussions after because for too sensitive to grade's measures (& little stains to find experts or so) collectors the quality is never enough and I don't want to be that one who made you dissapointed.

Coins from sets:
- If the coin is a part of a mint set it can be swapped only with a whole set but not separately. Informations about sets are in the comments' section.

Other informations from the comment sections
- All what is written after this: ✎ you don't need :) It's just a hint for me to find a coin faster until our dear moderators did not integrated the personal comment's fields not visible for others.

Confirmation, a case when some coins are missing:
- I confirm the swap only when all selected by you and pre-confirmed by me coins are prepared. Sometimes I can't find 1-2-3 coins coz forget to delete them from previous swaps and ask to replace them with equal coins, for these cases if i ask "equal" - means "equal", not in 10 times more expensive :). Please DO NOT CONFIRM the swap until I provide the pictures (scans) and we didn't reach the final agreement because then to make any changes I need to turn the swap and start it again and it is timetaking.

- Yes I know that many of you are xtra good in packing, my way though is a bit simple. I put coins in small zipped plastic bags, if it is in holder or capsule since a beginning it comes with it, if no then with other coins (I will try to separate and put high grade coins with high grade ones and so on). Package is tied enough to avoid problems with mail machines during a process of delivery + I use special envelops with bubbled plastic inside. For more especial sending I simply have no time, but in general it works well.

- Only registered mail with the track number (!), because the unregistered mails do not reach me. If it is too expensive in your country - let's do not start the swap better then.

It could take from 3 to 15 days (depending on my ability to get time for the post office to visit, excluding non-working days of the post) to send the parcel after the swap is confirmed finally by both sides. Basing on the experience, usually parcel reaches you during 1 week after it is sent for EU and during 2-4 weeks worldwide.

Mistake in one coin of the swap, all the rest was as agreed. Scans of coins was sent, but pictures I am taking as tool for checking of coins quality; not for comparing with the coins allready agreed to swap.

0/50/50/50/50/5 ronaldreinds's feedback on 30-Aug-2018
He sent them to a wrong adres and had it ensured for $3 beause shipment of coins is illegal from his country. Then blaims it on my postal service who claim a delivery to that adres. Will NOT compensate my shipment of over $120 worth of coins he did recieve...
Reply from akadotour on 1-Sep-2018
1) Coins were sent as agreed, the track number still shows they are delivered
2) The address was copy/past/printed so couldn’t be wrong. The name of the receiver was surely right, proof:
3) I don’t know how it is in Hilversum, but mostly everywhere the postman should be sure that he gives the parcel to the right parson like it is written in the parcel, how it could happen that wrong person signed and it was accepted I don’t know.
4) To apply for insurance it has to be agreed since the beginning otherwise it is not an argument for dispute at all
5) And from where I know that the parcel is not received? The track number shows it is and the rating of swapper is not that brilliant by the way.

Nevertheless. Let it be true. Ok. But even in that case it is the force majeure connected with the local post’s issue which should check the name of the receiver when the receiver signs in a paper of the postman so it is not my duty to pay for that post mistake. And even if I’ve got the negative rate in that case I try to keep the fairplay and put 4 stars to this swapper because the coins in fact were received by me (just 1 star minus for 3 wrong coins and for trying to manipulate for getting money with drawing of not that objective picture of the situation with the post issues like it was in reality)
