Does anyone remember the news story about the guy who traded a red paper clip for other things until he ended up with a House?

I read all about it and I thought it sounded like a lot of fun...So I decided I was going to give it a shot....I started on craigslist ad in the Detroit Area and first got a nasty response from someone.

Then a rec'd this trade offer

(It was a picture of a gun...but no more photobucket :) )

It is a "Blank" gun...but creeped me right out. So I decided Craigslist is not the place for me.



Then I thought how about CCF...Maybe instead of a house I will end up with a nice coin for my 7070 album or a civil war token for my collection.

So here it goes....Any numismatic item will be considered. I will then take a picture of the item I get and put it on this same thread to trade for something else. Until of course I end up with something I want to keep....And then (if it was fun and well received) maybe I will start over.

If you want to trade...Just post..."Trade offer sent" as a reply...and then PM me.

When I accept a trade I will post "trade in process, stay tuned"

When I receive the trade I will reply to this topic with the current offering.

Hopefully people will find something in this thread that they actually want and trade something they have laying around that they don't want anymore.

Let the trades begin....Don't forget to subscribe to this thread...You never know what is going to jump out at you.

Sorry, I would have taken the gun! But then I always lock my doors. (Even way out here in rural America.)

Yeah....I lock my doors too! But you have to leave the house to meet someone to exchange a gun for a piece of wood.


My luck, when I would have posted the gun up for trade... I would have been arrested because it is was a gun used in an armed robbery...the police probably wouldn't care that it was a blank gun.

The creepiness factor all depends on your location and life experience I guess.

If you grew up in the city of Detroit in the 80s and 90s like me, you might be more creeped out than say....Someone who grew up in Mayberry shooting cans off a fence post with Opie Taylor.

Oh and what Unknown95 said:


By the Way

Trade in Process stay tuned
