Hi, I am looking, as everybody, for the "common flag" .

I can forward the french one and also many commemorative coins 2011 to 2015... and even some of earlier years.

Thanks in advance

Jean

Hmm, Belgian and French forummember exhanging flags?
That's a lot better than forbidding Waterloo coins!

I also know Jean as a good person.
A few years ago I met him in Paris in person.

I just wanted others to pay attention to the fact that the problems with the coin have nothing to do with individuals living in those countries.
On euroswapper I think we have swappers from almost all countries forming a good community!

And exchanging flags can be seen as a ceremony....

Indeed Luit,

A Government and its decisions don't always represent it's community, it's mostly the opposite way.

Hi, everybody

I have the impression that there is a sort of misunderstanding concerning the origin of my post.

I just wanted to say that, as there will be about 20 coins commemorating the " common flag", I was looking for people who could swap me these coins for the french one as I will be in a condition to get it easily. And I propose also many other coins for swap.

I am not looking for one special flag...but for all the coins related with this issue.

As I am looking for all 2015 2 euro commemorative coins...

But, for example, concerning Portugal, I have already 2 people which whom we have a sort of "agreement" to swap our coins, of course at face value. But there is no exclusivity.

I have no wanted list. I have no swaplist.

Some of you insert regularly a post with these elements and they specify "preswap", "swap in progress",etc...

it is too complicated for me...that's why I launched an appeal to all of you.

Best regards.

jean

PS. I don't understand the stupid veto of the government of my country concerning Waterloo....the same government who wanted to issue a coin commemorating the battle of Marignan (which we won in 1515)...but which was lost by countries which are now our best friends....
