Older post update - Changing from Type Collecting Question
I have been working on a slabbed type collection for the past 5-8 years. As the remaining coins are either modern, a early dollars and a few random others, I find myself less interested. For example no interest in getting a SBA or modern dollars and struggle with spending the money to find a draped bust cent that I like. I have diverted into old gold (mainly generic dates) and Patriotic CWT’s. I do have a few typecoins that I love (ms65 fh SLQ in an ogh and a vf35 cac a/r SLH) that I love and will keep.
So my question is I have been going back and forth on whether to sell off the majority of my type coins. While I don’t need the money, the funds could be used to continue the hunt for new items or a special coin. Additionally, I think that selling may also release the pressure or feeling to complete the type set. That said, while not they are not all super special, I did spend time ensuring that I like all the type coins I have.
So, if you have been done a similar path, if you sold your coins, did you ever regret it and wish you had finished, or if you didn’t sell, did finishing the set bring huge satisfaction or actually lower your enjoyment? I have been leaning towards selling to spend more time on what currently interests me, but worry I might regret it later on. Any thoughts or words of wisdom?
