I'll start, 1) Finish my Franklin Half Dollar Collection. I have 15, so 19 more to go!! 2) Trade up my raw1884 CC Morgan to a Cert MS65

Happy New Year's! May 2023 you bring you good health and silver & gold!

    No goals for 2023.... I do not do New Year resolutions or goals. If it is worth doing/achieving, I simply set out to do it when I think of it. Cheers, RickO

    Not spending as much as I did in 2022. British coins and a few others were available so I didn't pass them up. I also started a new series I didn't think I would and completed it as far as possible for me. Still have some coins I'm looking for but if there's no surprises spending should be way down.

    My main goal is to continue to work on my three U.S. Type sets with maybe a little more focus on finishing the "Basic U.S. Coin Design Set (1792-present)" I only need five more coins to complete that set.

    Happy collecting to everyone for 2023.

    Sell some coins to buy paper currency instead. :o

    I plan on continuing my early half and large cent education and buy less but higher quality, slightly higher at first.

    Buy 2-3 coins and continue to build up my collection slowly. Rather get 2-3 coins that make me very happy that a whole bunch that don't. Slow and steady like previous years.

    So far this attitude has worked out well for me over the years. One thing I do know is there will be no major purchases for me in 2023 just regular coins I need for my sets. Maybe 2024 will be able to add a major pick up (for me anything over 2500$ is considered ''major'') will see then.

    Need to sell to buy again because am so scattered with my collections and high time I started to focus on just a few.

    1907-S $10 Liberty PCGS MS63 for my 1907 Mint Set; been looking for years for a nice example, tougher than I thought.

    I did quite a lot of consolidating in 2022. I traded up. This year I don't have much left for trade material. So I will be "spending" much less.

    Having said that, I am still hovering somewhere between "sell it all and start over" and "stay the path!"

    Get a nice EF+ Pine Tree shilling.

    3) I need to stop myself from buying US Mint products with the exception of maybe the Moran/Peace reverse proof set
