You can find my swap conditions below. Please read them before opening a swap. If you have any question related to our swap, please read this first too and only contact me if you can't find the answer here.

II. Starting a swap
III. My swaplist
IV. Coin valuation
V. Confirming and sending
VI. Rating

What he/she wants

I. Introduction and general rules
1. § My purpose of being here is to enlarge my collection by swapping my unwanted pieces for COINS/BANKNOTES I need.
2. § I only swap, I don't sell.
3. § I only swap by my own rules. If you don't accept them, please don't open a swap OR close the swap I opened
4. § If you want me to not contact you about swapping anymore in the future, please leave the swap I created open AND hide it in your swap monitor.
5. § The meaning of abbreviations:
a) NRI: Numista Rarity Index
b) cc: circulating commemorative

II. Starting a swap
1. § I only swap with you if
a) you have more than 25 ratings from trustworthy members AND your average is 9.5 (or better) AND you have at least 1 year membership AND you selected coins with the overall value of €30 (or more) AND you ship by registered mail
b) you send your coins first (even by not registered mail) AND swap value is at least 15€
2. § If you live outside the EU, you must use custom declaration.
3. § I can deny a swap without any further explanation.

III. My swaplist
1. § On my swaplist you can find all the coins that I offer for swap.
2. § In the comment field, you can read the following information about the coin:
a, coin condition (I always provide scans upon request, just ask)
b, swap value (see next chapter about valuation)
c, if the coin is not available: RESERVED
3. § As I have a lot of open swaps, it can happen that a coin doesn't have the word RESERVED in the comment field and still not available. I only mark special coins with this word.
4. § A coin with the word SET in its comment field is only swapped together with some other coins, details are always in the comment field.
5. § If you need a Hungarian coin/banknote/medal/stamp that is not on my swaplist, contact me and I will try to get it for you. Please indicate maxium price, minimal condition and specific year you need
6. § Occasionally I have banknotes, medals, stamps etc. for swap. Ask if you collect any of these.

IV. Coin valuation
1. § All the offers I give are based on the following valuation methods. I don't take into consideration any other ways of valuation.
2. § Swap values and these rules are valid for both sides.
3. § Swap value of all common (NRI<15) base metal not exchangable or low (<€0.15) face value worthles (widely available for low price) coins from European countries (except: Andorra, Monaco, Vatican, San Marino) and the USA, Canada, China is generally €0.15
4. § Swap value of all common (NRI<15) base metal not exchangable or low (<€0.30) face value worthles (widely available for low price) coins from other countries is generally €0.30.
5. § Swap value of common (NRI<15) base metal NOT commemorative circulating or still exchangable coins from the world is generally FACE VALUE.
6. § Swap value of common (NRI<15) commemorative and silver coins:
a) cc 2€: 2.5€
b) cc USA/Canada 25 cents: 0.25€
c) cc Russian 1, 2, 5, 10 ruble: 0.20€
d) circulating silver coins minted after 1945 OR not circulating but easily available silver commemoratives from this period: metal value
7. § A coin from you with nearly identical parameters (metal, NRI, market value) of a coin of mine is swapped 1:1 with my coin regardless of what value you declared for your coin.

V. Confirming and sending
1. § After we reached an agreement and exchanged addresses, I will send you the coins in 7 work days, I ask you to do the same.
2. § I don't take responsibility for lost letters, but in case the post office offers a reimbursement I will pay it to you via PayPal. I except the same attitude from you.

VI. Rating
1. § If it's our first swap, I except you to rate first even if your mail arrived earlier than mine. In case I have a problem with the coins I will contact you, otherwise you will get your 5 stars rating after you rated me.
2. § In case of a problem, please write me before leaving a rating and we will solve the situation.
3. § I will only leave a negative (less than 5 stars) rating if I had a serious problem with the swap and you are not open for discussion. Additionally, I have a relatively high tolerance level for smaller mistakes (wrong mintmark, easily confusable coins, varieties) and I just leave them and give a 5 star rating without asking you to correct the mistake, however I hate coins in very bad shape (if you didn't inform me about their condition previously).
