Well could not get into collecting sports cards (did not buy any at all). I spent to many years learning about Latin American coins and history. So I sat on my funds and picked up some nice pieces for my Mexican 1732-1771 1 real collection ( this is the only series I will be collecting at least for a decade at some point may go after cap & rays) and continuing to study as much as I can. I will this time be not so much on Pruebas nerves and simply show him respect. I shake his hand in peace and will be glad to mostly just read vs writing to much. Looking forward to following Latin American coin auctions like those at HA with you gentlemen here.

Here is a nice 1 real I picked up back in July 2023:

Got a filler 1733 1 real MX MF graded by NGC (numerical but low grade) I am happy with it. Looks nice in person and will upgrade as time goes. I am buying better quality coins now and moving forward will do the same unless the coin is rare. Taking the advice you guys have been telling for years and applying it. My coins will not all be mint state but will for sure go after numerically graded coins a lot more moving forward. I have added some nice 1 reales in the last few months.

Collecting interests: Mexico & Peru early milled 1 reales + 1796-1891 US dimes

Sports: NHL & NFL

Thank you Lord for another beautiful day!!!

    I still have all my coin books and history books so that is a huge bonus. And a few coins I never sold.

    Looking forward to Heritages auction in January of 2024 hopefully they have a few coins I need for my set.
