How to Collect Dmidst a Pandemic

Since we are all at home without a means to connect with people in-person, I thought it would helpful for people to list/explain what they are doing during this lockdown to help scratch that collecting nerve.
I have been becoming more active on forums, exchange blogs like here and on NGC's forum, I have been rereading some books on numismatics, focusing on a specific series of coins, practicing grading, and I've been going through old US mint records which has been a lot of fun.

I'm enjoying going over all my coins in my collection. You get to understand how beautiful some are.

I'm taking the ANA diploma courses and grading a large amount of coins for a friend. Our coin shops are open so I go occasionally there too

My Go-To coin Shop is open by appointment so I just send an email to Blaine and ask him if he has so/so in stock at such/such grade. Last item I bought from him was a Seated Quarter which he delivered to me at our July club meeting.  Perfecto, but I miss my shows.  Especially the WFM which won't return until 2023.

Simply go over my coins. It's relaxing.

Our coin club met in July which was nice. Bought a 3 legged Buffalo nickel at the coin club auction. Ebay searching all the time. Local buy and sell silver guy is open. Antique stores have coins, but always over priced at antique stores.
