How do I find other collectors to trade coins with?

by Charlie
(Portland, OR)

Question: I live on the west coast and collect Presidential dollars and state quarters with my grand children. We get lots of Denver mints but no Philly mints. I would like to find some one on the east coast to trade with.

My Answer: You might try some of the coin collecting forums. A lot of collectors hang out there and there is lots to learn and share in these communities.

Just post your request in a couple of them and I wouldn't be surprised if someone else is looking for the same thing you are.

You usually have to be a registered member to post in forums but most of them are free to join. You can do a search for coin collecting forums or bulletin boards, or you can try one of the links below.

I hope this helps.

If anyone would like to trade Presidential Dollars and Statehood Quarters with Charlie, please reply below.

Charlie in Portland, or other West Coast Collector

Presidential dollars D mint
by: Irv Cohen

I have some extra presidential dollars with the P mint mark. I just get them at the bank from time to time. I have some of the D's but the P's are much more common around here, especially in decent condition. Would like to trade with someone who finds the D's easier to obtain.

is this thread dead?
by: Coin monkey

Just wondering if there are any amateurs on the East side with P mint quarters that want to trade for D mint ones.

I am only looking for a Northern Mariana to finish the States and then most of the National Parks. 95% of the stuff I see over in Nevada is D mint so it is really hard to find them.

I have a few places where I get new coins straight out of the roll so they have only 'circulated' from the cash register to my pocket.

This is swap only so don't be scared off my the email address. Please drop me a message at "702 stuff for sale @ gmail .com"

I'm Sorry Everyone
by: Eva - Moderator

I am sorry about all the spamming! I have been deleting and banning them, but it doesn't seem to be stopping them. I am trying to stay on top of things, but it is getting very time consuming.

Thank you all for your patience. I will try to keep this thread alive and on topic.
