    @Boosibri

    Are you only considering crowns in your collection?
    I always had an extremely high regard for your Norweb 4 reales.
    I thought it was a beautiful coin and it had all the bells and whistles.

    Yes only considering crowns. The 4R is amazing but if I were to sell it, the basis of my collection would continue on.

    Very beautiful coins. For me the coin is the part of history. If i read about the French Revolution i want to have the coins of it, it's like link with history for me. The English Revolution with Cromwell - when i read about it my favorite coin was halfcrown by Charles 1 1641-45. My main theme of coin's collecting is revolutions and time of freedom. And now i have like favorite this coins, another month - another. In my life i sold all collection twice - one time i stopped collecting and sold all, another time i changed my theme and sold 150+ coins, and like not very young man i know that everything can change, so i like the coins but don't think about it like "pillars". All coins what you have you have temporarily and you are only episode in coin's life. It's the mood what i have about it. Sorry for my English.

    Peace.

    I wish I had a few key coins in my collection I could point to. I am working on 10-15 different sets, so if I lost one of those sets I'd still have 9-14 left. Conceptually, my collection wouldn't be significantly diminished as a result. I don't know if I should call my collection resilient to theft, or uninteresting.
