My goals for the coming year

Coins | Moneda1793

Gotta love this hobby! Recently after obtaining some old and new coin catalogs( latest from Heritage,Stack Bowers,etc to back in the past , such as the mammoth catalog of the John Story Jenks collection by Henry Chapman, with copies of the plates!) , I've started to collect a Morgan for each year,starting with the less pricier ones. Conditions ranging from ExFine to MS 63. It appears that the Philadelphia and New Orleans mints put out the most Morgans in comparison to the San Francisco and Carson City mints. My target for next year will be the 1893 and 1895. Once that is completed, I'll move on to collecting the type set of Gold coins ,from the Dollar to the Double Eagle. Hopefully I'll complete that set in a couple of years. I hope everyone here gets to fulfill their goals for the coming year! Rick

Well the year is winding down, and what a year it has been so far!! Hope everyone and their love ones have been safe from the corona epidemic. Well I did pick up a 1895 O Morgan in Fine12 condition. It appears at this point I'll pick up an 1893 Morgan next year , we'll see. Anyway wish all here happy holidays and hopefully a better year to come.

Very good goals I hope you stay above them!

I hope you share the pictures of the 1893 and 1895 when you accomplish your goal. Excellent goal and congrats on not giving up. Was there a moment you thought about quitting and then you made the decision to push on through?

Good luck on your goal. I will be working on my second year out of three to complete UNC Franklin Halves.

I am 8 coins away from finishing my complete date and mint mark set of UNC Franklins, raw. Did not want them slabbed as I wanted the nostalgia of putting coins into a book and finishing a set. I will have 8 coins bought at FUN in January. It has taken me 4 years to complete.

I believe that everyone should set goals. You have to have a plan to say, "I love it when a plan comes together." Otherwise, how will you know when you have arrived. I hope you meet all your objectives in the next year!
