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.

Also I don't like proof coins.

What he/she wants


I usually swap by the value, but can also exchange on the coin for coin basis or make a proposal based just on feeling. I prefer to use Numista values, but also ok to 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 grading. Please carefully examine them before pressing a confirmation button.

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 shipping costs.

I usually send by tracked letters and expect the same from you. Untracked letters are fully at the responsibility of the sender. There was a couple of untracked letters lost, therefore it is HIGHLY recommended to send to me with a track. In case you want to send without track, please send first.

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.
