I am having a dilemma. To change my style of collecting or to maintain as I am.There is very good advice to collect smartly. I have been an emotional budget restricted collector which is why amassing the collection I have is probably worth less that collections much smaller. For most of my 38 years of collecting I have collected from change which means I don't have many coins in what could be called high grade. I have purchased coins as a kid just to fill that spot in my book. I have done the same with proof sets.Well, turning 50 this year has made me reconsider many things including downsizing to a smaller, more impressive (to me) collection of rarities. I find it hard to give up on the coins I have accrued and sell them off for a pittance to put toward a higher grade collection that is easier to manage.I have been keeping up with what the mint has been offering in the way of issued coinage and silver, but I would really enjoy being able to have some gold pieces. This is a reason for me to want to get into dealing coins, to be able to put some extra money away as well as add better coinage to me collection.Does any one else fight this internal battle currently?Any advice is appreciated. I know this is and will end up a personal decision but I thought if anyone would understand what I am up against, it would be someone here at the A.N.A. website.Thank you!
