Irrational coin buying at it's finest...for a dupe no less.

StorkStork Posts: 4,537 ✭✭✭✭✭

Let's see. I'm trying to downsize...not that I'd ever have a mere box of 20--I'll settle for 20 different collections--but I'm trying to lose the extraneous stuff and dump the remnants of my 'collectible bullion' (anyone interested in Aussie Lunars??). I want to stay focused on Albania, upgrading my Japanese Type's overall quality (and reduce my date runs/dupes), and maybe/possibly inch a bit further into ancients.

So, what did I do this weekend??? Apparently I decided I needed this duplicate of one of my more enduring coin forum avatars. Seriously.

My current one/old avatar coin in an NGC MS-64:

and now I bought this one from @airplanenut that resides in an ANACS MS-65:

I guess that means if anyone has a blast white (just for variety...or another toned one, why not???) in a PCGS and/or ICG slab, well I'll be all over it.

Not only that I bought another Italian coin, which is very similar to one I sold another time I downsized. Geez. I find it hard to resist Jeremy's auctions.

    There are some coins from the country that I collect that I find myself buying multiple duplicates....I should stop so I have more money to put towards other coins that I don't have from that country!

    Nice coins. I keep buying copies of the Italian issued Albanian WWII coinage for my WWII collecting theme.

    I know where you are coming from. Not only do I have multiples of a certain issue, but the top three (as well as four of the top five) graded by PCGS are all mine that I purchased raw over the years and sent in myself.

    Well, when you'll start unloading Japanese raw dupes, especially from the first two pages of the Dansco, you know whom to PM. :) Great design and superb photography of the one in the Anacs holder that looks much more original, although both coins are superb.

    Thanks D! I've changed up my lighting a bit, and still need to figure out a better diffusion method.

    It's an illness. I have waaayyy too many of the 50 sen double hoo bird coins, and don't get me started on some of the Albanian minors. I suppose I could claim it's a grading set.... I guess if you like something it's hard to resist.

    Hmm, so that's where they are going (as it seems this is an expansion of my Zog's Albania set). :lol:
