4  Economy / Collectibles / What's the best way to SHIP physical bitcoins internationally? on: May 27, 2019, 05:13:22 AM
So while I'm asking questions.. Wink

What's the best way to SHIP physical bitcoins (like Casascius coins) internationally?

In my case i'm in in Australia and I'm guessing most of the people bidding here are in the USA or Europe?

From my experience - as I've sold a few on eBay a few years ago:
I have used Australia Post and DHL but unfortunately had a bad experience with Aust Post.
I sold one to a coin collector in Berlin and via Aust Post and it arrived fine - I forget how I declared it but simply as a medallion or something.
I sold one to a coin collector within Australia via Aust Post and it arrived fine.  No declaration for local stuff.
I sold another one to a coin collector in the UK via Aust Post and this one I declared properly and got insurance as well.  This went missing somewhere between Australia Post and Royal Post UK.
Australia Post refused to cover the insurance claiming it was a coin and I shouldn't be sending coins - despite the fact that the local post office guy said it was fine.
In order to satisfy the coin collector I sent him another one - this time via DHL and I packaged it up with a cheap $10 webcam and declared it as a webcam.  It arrived fine and the guy was surprised at first (and freaked out) but happy in the end.

It was a pretty nerve wracking ordeal and I haven't sold any on eBay since.
So I'm hoping you guys might have some better methods of sending and insuring your collectables?

5  Economy / Collectibles / Interested in selling some casascius coins - but how to prove I'm honest? on: May 27, 2019, 01:52:15 AM
So I have some Casascius bitcoins I've held onto since 2011.
I've sold a few on ebay over the years, but the hardest thing is to prove that I actually have them and get honest bids.

My coins have never been graded because I've not found a grading service in Australia that will do it, but they've been looked after and I have them stored in little plastic coin cases I bought for them to keep them safe.
I'm thinking about taking a photo of the coins with the forum in the background on my laptop somehow - would that be reasonable?  (providing i can get both in focus that is)
What else can I do to prove that it's a sincere sell?

It's worth mentioning that my forum account got hacked and some Russian guy used it to post stuff for a while there, but I've reset the password since now - not that I've ever made many posts with it anyway.

So yeah, credibility.. how to prove? Smiley
