      Nice Chilean coin set! I think the 1822 Peso is a better date, I've seen 17's, a few 18's, the 1821, and I think an 1833, but never a 22. One of my only 2 Chilean Pesos is a type you don't show: it's the Condor Breaking Chain type from 1839 or so I think.

      Damn you, so many beautiful coins.:D
      I may consider creating an album dedicated to German Imperial coins.

      Had some set backs, my coin 50 US$ plastic folders have been stolen somewhere between Chile customs and my house. Also, some key dates are difficult to find in "good" grade. Will do it before leaving the country, I hope. I have some nice dups and should be able to send a photo after the weekend. Now, mining copper is in the order of the day.

      Your chilenean coin type set should have reached 90% completion by now, or am I mistaken?

      The 1834 real is not to my liking, pricewise it may be okay, gradewise it isn't. I've no problem spending a few € for a lowball/ugly coin, for higher prices I want better condition, and if it comes to decide between a common coin in outstanding condition and a scarce coin in a bad condition for the same price it will always be the high grader that wins.

      There are a few dealers offering coins on ebay regularly mostly modern strikes from 60s until now, older coins appear mostly as auctions by private sellers seldom known dealers/auction houses like Lanz are also listing.

      I'm gonna upload pictures of a few coins I'm willing to trade in the next weeks, seeing as even ordinary stuff goes for high price in Chile I would also send you miscellaneous European circ. coinage (not the highest grade but no crap either). -Interest?
      Ebay is particularly good for mint sets.

      The example I posted was just one of the most extreme, I've also compared other Latin American coins and their prices with the prices asked on ebay Germany and other coin dealers here. The site is terrible for modern coins and the older historic coins are often in a bad questionable condition (fake!?) or overpriced, the number of good offers is small.

      I don't claim that good deals can't be made, this here is one for example: http://articulo.mercadolibre.cl/MLC-404388055-chile-1-un-peso-1883-unc-_JM

      I see, would you be interested in a coin trade with me? I could offer some German/European coins, nothing of very high value some ordinary circ. coins silver and non silver.
      It's difficult to determine a fair value for the coins on ebay, may I contact you in the future regarding certain coins and more info on local market prices? What I've seen for example is that some of the ordinary German coins are more expensive on ebay Amercia and vice versa.

      You've added some great coins to your albums. Can I ask you what the average price for chilenean mint sets in the range of years between 60s-90s is?
