Hello, this is my new numismatic blog; my name is Juan Carlos Medina Gutierrez, 40, married, from Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
I collect Mexican coins from the former Century and this new one, I recently started to collect World Coins and it is a very rewarding activity, I’m so involved now. I´m interested in continue collecting coins under the following rules:
1. - If you contact me and you don’t have any previous exchange references, then you send the coins first (obviously by registered mail).
2.- If you contact me and you have previous exchange references, then we send each other coins at the same time.
3.- The coins must be wrapped by tissue paper, aluminum foil, toilet paper or any other material in order to protect them from the adhesive tape which they are attached to the cardboard.
4.- Both coins packages, yours and mine, must be mailed by registered mail in order to track them through the Internet and avoid a possible lost during the trip.
5.- My coins are in excellent condition, free of dust, stains, rust, oxidation or bag marks and I ask the same to my counterpart.
6.- Until now I’m only interested in swap Mexican coins by my counterpart’s country coins.
The swap would be like this:
old coins by old coins,
bimetallic coins by bimetallic coins,
new cone coins by new cone coins, etc.
NOTE: Mexican coins from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s (before the new pesos issues), are very heavy, I always ask for more coins to my counterpart in order to be equal in packages weigh.
The maximum weigh of coins packages I could exchange at once is 225 grams, the Mexican Post Office fares to International packages under 250 grams are very cheap and very convenient for me (I took off 25 grams from the maximum weigh in order to save enough room to the packaging items: Little box, tape, paper to wrap it, etc.)
You are welcome to contact me with a swap offer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
