Sunday Morning Reflection - Is There a Limiting Principle for Your Collection?
As my collection surpassed a big value threshold last year, I've been thinking about the idea of when is "enough is enough." I collect what catches my eye but also acquire for a particular series that I am collecting. Sometimes I'll acquire a few of a certain type and then I begin thinking well, maybe I should collect more of them or build a set. I have have sold coins from my collection many times, but I like what I own and don't want to thin the herd.
Do you have a limiting principle for your collection? Age, Death? Completion of a series or two? Completion of a 7070? How do you answer "when is enough, enough"?
