What are your 2024 collecting goals and resolutions?
It’s almost 2024, and I know from past threads on the forum that many folks (myself included) like to use the transition into the new year as an opportunity to consider—and perhaps reset or change—their collecting objectives.
I had a few goals this year that I posted in the 2023 thread, including buying my first pattern (check), completing my Peace Dollars (check), making progress on my Washington Q set (check) and finishing my WLH CAC Proof set (not quite).
As I think about 2024, the two things that are top of mind for me are:
1. Have more patience. I bought a lot this year, and while I’ve added some incredible coins, I want to slow the pace to ensure I’m being thoughtful. That may mean fewer coins this year, or perhaps just fewer “net” coins (see second point).
2. Become a regular seller on the BST. I enjoy the placing coins with other collectors, interacting with folks on the forum, and buying/selling. I may start a monthly selling post the first Sunday of each month, or something like that.
What are your goals, objectives, and/or resolutions for next year?
Nothing is as expensive as free money.
