Thank you Lord for another beautiful day!!!
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.
Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value. Zero. Voltaire. Ebay coinbowlllc
I have the plan of no plan.... This works well for me... Cheers, RickO
I do not set plans or goals. I take what the numismatic gods offer and am grateful.
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.
Acquire some more low pop world coins. Get Some of my WPM graded. Attend shows. Acquire slabbed World Gold, US Bullion Gold. Pickup quality Classic Commems where can buy right (online store sell). Graded WPM the new frontier.
