Assessments

Coins-United States | CoinLady

It's the end of the year, time to think about what was accomplished and not accomplished. The other day I went to lunch with a friend who owns a bookstore. He spoke of what he wants for his store in 2018. I mentioned a few book projects I was considering. As a bookseller, he had an opinion on what kind of novel project I should work on next. I got home and looked over my work in 2017 and thought of what to do in 2017.
Numismatists can benefit from an assessment every so often. What do you collect? Do you have empty spaces in that album to fill, or perhaps can never be filled? Do you have any collecting goals?
Perhaps you want to attend a convention and see what it's about. Do you want to pursue a new series, or abandon an old one that doesn't interest you any more? Do you want to read more and learn about a new series? Maybe you want to get more involved in your hobby.
No matter the date or time of year, it's a good idea to see where you're at in your collecting career and see where you want to go.

questions all collectors have to ask themselves every now and then

All really good ideas! I'm happy with where I'm at in my collecting. I like to take my time and find that "special" coin. No rush.. ; )

I set goals, but do not place a time limit on them. A collector just needs to be patient.

I am pretty content with where my collection is. My problem is that I still find stuff that I have to have.

Terrific ideas. I have two collections to finish. One can happen this year but both can happen at any time. I just have to be at the right place at the right time. You have me thinking again. Thank you for that. Mike.

I'm pretty happy with where I'm at right now. However that is a good idea you stated. I would look forward to reading a numismatic themed book by you!! Thanks!
