What he/she collects

Priorities are:
1) Pre-decimal UK + colonies, Japan, Russia, Finland
2) European pre-euro + colonies + some other countries where I've been.

I don’t collect banknotes (but have some for swap here, stamps and other staff.

What he/she wants

If you want to swap, please enquire with the swap offer, not with simple message.

I swap by the value, not coin for coin. I use Krause or NCG prices for evaluation with common sense adjustments of some big mistakes (like coin with Numista rarity index 30+ which costs 0,25). Selling is also possible, but not the aim of being here.

I collect by type in VF or better. If you have a coin of the same type but different year in better conditions than the one I picked, I’d prefer this coin.

The grades of my coins represent my own opinion. I provide quality phone-made photos of the coins and ready to discuss any reasonable suggestions regarding the grades. I also expect the quality photos from the swap-partner.
I can additionally provide (as well as request) better photos of some high-value coins if needed.

The value of swap should justify the shipping costs.

I usually send by tracked letters and expect the same from you. Untracked letters are fully at the responsibility of the sender.

I have to ask you to pack your coins on the way that nobody can understand what is inside; otherwise there is a high risk that they will be lost. Please note that it is formally prohibited in Russia to send coins by post.

I can also propose a bulk of Russian commemoratives for “random” swap with agreed proportion (e.g. 5 Russian commemoratives for one €2 commemorative coin).
