in my 7 yrs. of collecting, my trade with michel has been the best ever. a small one, but one abounding with quality. adding these caps to my collection will be better than winning the Irish Sweep Stakes and El Gordo simultaneously. thanks, too, to michel for his kind indulgence. should you ever come to the States you have the standing offer of a free beer! or more?
May our future have more "beaux échanges"!

etiam multum aestimo. speremus ut in diebus futuris nos alteram communitationem experior potamus ut augendas feliciter collectiones nostras... .atque Vale!
have had several trades with benji over the years. these have always been conducted without a hitch. his emails reveal a very pleasant and cooperative collector. while on the small side, our exchanges have nevertheless helped to quell my mental wanderlust.
hopefully, more exchanges await the both of us.
havala vam, matjaž, for all the caps from the former yugoslavia. your nicely packaged items arrived in record time, while mine to you took triple the time with more than odd routing. go figure! for me, however, the pièce de resistance cap for this armchair traveler was guadeloupe.
indeed, another trade sometime in the near future would be most welcome.
Steve, thank you for facilitating a trade of 96 caps. While i appreciate the large number of Scandinavian caps, the pièce de resistance was/is the cap from the Aland Islands.Your humor , exuberance, care were always omnipresent in our email exchanges.
The Stockholm-Port Townsend transit took 23 days. A sign that perhaps matters are returning to "normal"?
Hopefully, there be future exchanges in the offing.
My nicely wrapped 190 caps arrived from Buenos Aires in "record time." 31 days, in fact. The 100 or so Argentine caps therein make me wonder whether there are any beer caps left in tango and asado land.
Thanks, Luís, for the friendly exchange that included humor, cultural tidbits, and, last but not least, interesting bottle caps.
¡Hasta el próximo canje!
amic, toni. thank you for this our third trade. may i hope for a 4th?!
compliments on your carefully planned website, wherein countries are alphabetized and beer caps are presented separated from non-beer. it also helps the selection process to have your guide posts animated. a very user-friendly effort on your part.
once again: ¡ moltíssimes gràcies!
Thanks so much for the pleasant and profitable trade. The caps were carefully packed and of excellent quality. Surprised at how much "exotic" traders you have and wish that I had equally attractive material to have lured more away. At least, I now have Angola, Tunisia and Tajikistan. Ain't bad for a first trade.
I can only hope that our paths will again cross and that you continue having success and enjoyment with our mutual hobby.
Your parcel arrived in record time. Thanks for the beautiful Spanish postage and the bottle caps. Many are hard to find items and would enhance any collection. In addition, many thanks for being so cooperative.
Hopefully, there will be other mutual trades down the pike!
my package to Julián in buenos aires arrived after 47 days, while his arrived in two weeks.
yet another example of how bad our usps delivery system is. the wait, though, happily brought all sorts of Latin American delights.
i highly recommend any exchange with Julián, who exemplifies so many outstanding qualities: patience, accommodation, knowledge, constant communication, etc., and all the while meeting the demands of student university life.
i would hope to trade with Julián at a later date, his student and collecting demands permitting.
