    Still trying to complete my branch mint gold dollar set. I have the 54-D, 56-D, 61-D, 59-S, and 70-S still to acquire. Didn't get any of the five in 2020. They seem to be most difficult to find in AU50-58 that look decent.

    Considering that I did not have a plan for 2020, I did alright! I added some obsolete notes that I had been half-looking for, and finally tracked down, fleshed out my USA coin type set a bit more, and added a few more interesting items. Even better, I stayed under budget! I just checked my notes and so far for 2020 I am $6 under budget for the year.

    For 2021, maybe I will try and improve my collection of crocodile related coins. I mostly collect paper, and there are some common enough world coins with crocodilians that I just have not got around to getting. Those should not be expensive. There is a Conder token too that I should hunt. Maybe also a $1 gold coin for USA type.

    For 2021 I anticipate selling maybe a bit more than buying, focusing on quality over quantity. We'll see how that goes. Some early half-cents, maybe a commem or two, and a few gold coins to replace lesser examples recently sold off will be the targets.

    I partially completed my goals for 2020. I added several coins to my Indian Head quarter eagle date set. My goal for 2021 is to complete that set. I currently have 7 of 13 so I have six more to go. I'm looking for coins with nice color which makes it a little tougher.

    I did not have any goals coming into 2020 for Numismatics. I had been out of the hobby a number of years, and did not have the itch, or a plan to return.

    That all changed in late January when I received a call from an old friend who wanted help with a collection he and his Dad had worked on decades before. He remembered I collected, felt he could trust me, and knew how to find me.

    It was a weird feeling going through a thousand or so coins again after barely a peek at the safe deposit box contents in over seven years. But it caused the wheels to start turning almost immediately. Soon a box of things came home for a visit. Then another. Books came out. The internet searches for information began.

    I logged back on here in May. The journey had been reborn ...

    For 2021, I am hopeful I can find more original and attractive Bust and Seated Halves, maybe a Bust Quarter or two, and a few more Notes for my Paper collection. I also hope we can all travel again, and that some of us will meet while visiting a show and share a bite, or a coffee, or a good pint.

    My goal was to work towards a full pcgs set of Washington quarters while picking up upgrades for my Eisenhower, kennedy, and franklin sets. Followed by filling in spots in my Roosevelt set when i can.

    I do not set plans or goals. I take what the numismatic gods offer and am grateful.

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?

    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.

    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.

    Generally, I would like to buy quality over quantity and evaluate my purchases more thoroughly and not make any compromises. More specifically, I would like to find quality DCAM Franklins and Gem Morgans for my registry set.

    I didn't have a significant goal for 2020, but I've come up with one for 2021: putting together a date/mint set of Barber Halves in VG08/VG10, all with the nice uniform gray/charcoal color that well circulated Barbers often have.

    My 2021 goal will be to finally accomplish my 2019 & 2020 goals, and not have to wait until 2022 to accomplish my 2021 goals............. You'd think just collecting current-year U.S. & Canadian coins wouldn't be so hard.............. :(

    My goal for 2020 was to do the 8 piece gold type set. I fulfilled that goal half way through the year. For 2021, I’d like to add a couple of classic head gold pieces and work on my 7070 album.
