What he/she collects

I have some exotic leftover coins for sale, I ask for their exchange value for them.
They are only for sale as an addition to a swap, no exceptions. (Explanation: I can send around maximum 70 OR 140 coins for the same shipping price. For example, if we agreed to swap 50 coins on my side, then you will have an opportunity to buy 20 exotic coins for face value as 70-50=20, and shipping price on my side will be the same). Coins are in different denominations, all circulating, so they can be used or dirty, but most of them are in a good condition. I don't search for years, you will get random coins. Ask for the list of available countries.

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

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).
