What he/she collects

Silver coins by year (not by type). The theme of my collection is those silver coins that was intended for use by everyday people, as well as proofs and commemoratives. I focus on coins with some English on them, so that I can easily identify them.

I used to collect gold coins as well, but that turned out to be too expensive, so I am swapping them for more interesting silver coins.

PS: Please note that there will be delays as I have too many swaps and not enough time. I am working through the swaps in the sequence that I received them (just to be fair with everyone). Please accept my humble apology for the delays. I am trying my best to complete as many as I can without compromising on the quality of the swap.

What he/she wants

Silver coins by year. (When I swap with you, I expect that specific coin. Please do not send me another of the same KM. The specific year and variant are important.)

I swap based on the KM value (because that is about what I paid for them). I use the catalog at
I grade using the Sheldon scale.

Unfortunately, the exchange was not successful. The package was lost during the shipment (South Africa vs Italy), not through Andre''s fault. He was, as always, a true and generous gentleman, sending first and risking his own coins firsthand. I hope to compensate with the next exchange- Thanks for all my friend.
