Hobby fun with Registry Sets

SanctionIISanctionII Posts: 11,714 ✭✭✭✭✭

As I have coins graded and/or as I acquire new slabbed coins it is a treat to see some of my Registry Sets (I started some sets about a year ago) move up in the set rankings.

Today my 1968, 1969 and 1970 Proof Sets moved up a little bit (due to Modcrewman selling me some of his coins).

    I encourage everyone to join the Registry set group!
    However is not like it was years ago where everyone wanted to help each other!

    As an example if you ever talk to a Merateer in 2001 you would see the different!!!!!

    Funny, I just talked to a member here about his set, he's 1 ahead of me in the registry. Just reached out to say hello and told him I look forward to the chase. It's all good and he seems to be one of the good guys here.

    At some point you have to recognize that the other people in your registry are some of the people you have the most overlapping collecting interests with. And those people would probably make the best coin friends.

    I think the registry is a great way to keep track of your sets and be organized. I really like the digital albums. For me the whole 'ranking' and competition isn't really that important, but it can be fun sometimes to watch your sets improve in rank as you complete or upgrade them. Now if people would only be willing to sell me the coins i need for my sets....

    I have enjoyed participating in the registry and come into contact with some great individuals over the years. It is satisfying to see progress in the sets and when rank increases.

    I have not done a registry set. I do enjoy seeing them though. Cheers, RickO
