HI all,
I'm calling for an Olde Tyme Coin Swap, like we used to do 20 years ago on this forum.

If you are interested, reply to this post.

I hope to see a dozen or more "Deal me in" responses...

The Rules:

  1. To join the swap, your account must have been active for at least 1 month.
  2. U.S. shipping addresses only, please.
  3. Minimum value $20, valuation by Numismedia.com FMVs.
  4. I'll post the list of who sends to who, A sends to B, who sends to C, who sends to ... X, who sends to A. So it's a circle.
  5. PM your victim/target to get their shipping address (and optionally find out if they have particular interests)
  6. The "main things" you send are to be desirable/collectable U.S. coin(s). Bonus items can be included as well, but please do not unload your junk.
  7. Once I post the list, let's try to get the packages shipped within a week.
  8. When you receive your package, you can post a description on this thread... especially if it is particularly generous/interesting/funny...

Thanks!

    @lordmarcovan , @Modwriter , @bigtime36 , you all expressed interest in a $20 swap. Please post a "Deal me in" to this thread. @Dscoin also expressed some interest, after the ANA show. Let's see the buzzzzz...

    So far:
    moursund -> @lordmarcovan -> @Modwriter

    I hope to see at least a few more before we close the circle.
    But even now, moursund can contact lordmarcovan for shipping address and interests, and similarly lordmarcovan can contact Modwriter. Modwriter has to wait to know the next target...

    Thanks!

    I guess I’ll be needing @Modwriter ’s address and preferences, then, and a nudge on when it’s time to proceed.

    (Edit- PM sent)

    I am hoping to get at least a few more and the chain, but I suppose there is no reason not to start the shipments ASAPractical.

    As for all of the people who are reading this thread and not yet jumping in, give it a try!

    I am shipping my outgoing package to @Modwriter today. Because I offered him some choices, the primary coin in his package is not a mystery. I figured I'd rather send him something he wanted, so the cat's out of the bag on this one. The OTHER coins in the package, however, remain a secret, and I'll let him post the rest when they arrive.

    But this is the main piece. It currently trends $13 on Numismedia in VG8. I think the rest should easily be worth more than seven bucks. (One set in the other mystery coins is an item I usually sell for $10, and there's more besides that.)

    I am very thankful to have drawn @lordmarcovan for the August coin swap! I am also shipping my outgoing package today to @DontTellTheWife. I have the same anxious feeling I get when submitting. lol Also, thanks to @moursund for putting the coin swap together.

  • moursundmoursund Posts: 3,207 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Let's get a few more in the chain before we close the loop... sounds like the links are mailing out promptly. I'll try to get mine off to @lordmarcovan today or tomorrow.

    And in the new tradition of showing the primary coin in the package, here is what will head toward @lordmarcovan

    OMG it's an OGH! :smile:

    Yeah, sorry. Swaps like this, as you have discovered, seem to be something of a bygone thing.

    I received my package from @moursund yesterday, and was going to bring it to work with me to open it, but forgot and left it at home. When I get off, I’ll open it and post a proper “unboxing”, whenever I’ve suitably recovered from the rigors of another graveyard shift.

    Belated update: @moursund was more than generous with me and sent me LOTS of bang for the twenty bucks!

    There was that 1945 Merc in the old PCGS rattler holder, plus a proof Mt. Rushmore commem half, an 1896 French 5-centimes, and a handful of really cool exonumia pieces! I particularly like the neutron irradiated 1946 dime in a 1950s encasement. I haven’t had one of those in about a decade.

    So there was plenty of “icing on the cake”, so to speak. Thank you, @moursund! I only hope that @Modwriter will enjoy what he got from me as much as I enjoyed what I got from you. Hope everyone ends up enjoying what they got. :)

    And I am in (way too) humid SE coastal Georgia, (near Florida), so @moursund and I are on the opposite ends of the continent.

    I’d like to see the Pacific NW someday. My daughter just returned from a trip to Portland, Oregon.

    Unfortunately for her, the (nonrefundable) accommodations she booked were in Portland, Maine!

    Ouch! (Speaking of opposite ends of the continent.)

    I wonder how many others have made that same mistake. Reminds me of a coworker whose mother went to send money to her here in Georgia via Western Union, and sent it to Georgia (the country in Asia) instead.

    My daughter liked Portland (OR), however.

    Thank you! I always have used the term "token" in place of exonumia. I do have a few exonumia that I have put away and will have to take a look at them now.

  • lordmarcovanlordmarcovan Posts: 43,194 ✭✭✭✭✭

    “Exonumia” is a more general sort of umbrella term. Tokens are the major category of Exonumia, or course, but that also includes medals, love tokens, and elongated coins, etc.

    @lordmarcovan in Georgia, are Denver Mint coins hard to find? I find Philadelphia Mint coins very rarely here on the west coast.

    I wouldn’t say D-mint coins are hard to find, necessarily, but they’re certainly a lot scarcer on this side of the country than P-mint coins are.

    Nah, just a humble 1928-S Lincoln in Littleton plastic. It was there mixed in, so off it went.
