Starting my journey in Registry Sets
I have been debating with myself on this for a while.
I basically have used a shotgun approach at acquiring coins over the past 15 years.
Example, every proof set from 1959-2020, every ASE burnished since it started in 2006, as well as a bunch of ASE proofs, UNC and silver commemoratives, etc etc ...
My self induced dilemma is to start cracking sets and submitting to start registry sets.
I know financially not the best choice in say my complete sets of bronze first spouse medals and Presidential dollars, I’ll never get back what I would pay in submissions, I accept that. None of my kids or family care about my coins so they’ll end up being sold after I’m gone anyway.
Add to the fact that 90% of the mint and proofs sets are not worth much in OGP.
I feel going towards registries in the long run would keep me focused in acquiring only those coins to build upon instead of my current non-focused purchases.
I’m leaning this way for 2 reasons.
A. I need to focus more on
quality over quantity.
B. Studying and learning how to grade better and focusing on a specific sets would, I feel, add to the enjoyment.
I know this could takes years to do correctly, and money. I have more time than money, but don’t need to complete anything overnight so I can spread the cost out.
So after that narrative, am I missing anything in my thought process?
Pitfalls I’m not thinking about?
And unless I hit lotto I’m aware some registries are out of reach for top ten let alone top 5.
I apologize for long post, I just wanted to supply as much info as possible upfront.
