Question for 'aging' coin collectors
I have been collecting coins for around 50 years now. At first I wanted to fill in all (or as many) holes in my Whitman Lincoln cent books as I could. Being 10 - 12 years old and with limited funding, I found samples in rolls of pennies or bought coins in VG - XF condition. Later, after I got the second book filled and had maybe 50% of the first book filled with highly circulated coins, my interest shifted from completing series' to exploring types. So I got 2 cent and three cent pieces and even my first gold coin (an 1895 $10 BU for like $35). It went on like this off and on for the next 40 years or so, but now as I am starting to need reading glasses for close work, I find that I don't care for 'small' coins so much anymore. Since Flying Eagle cents are my favorite and I would never get rid of these, I define 'small' as $1G, Dimes, Three cent silvers, Half Dimes (don't know if I missed any other coins smaller than a current cent). And I now enjoy some of the larger coins (like Double Eagles, Bust Halves and Dollars) that I didn't have too much interest in before.
Is this just me being weird again or do other long time collectors have similar feelings? Or do you just get a bigger magnifying glass?
