Coin collecting goals for 2006?


Recommended Posts

get more coins and maybe some coin books

 

to be a bit more specific:

 

Coins:

US, 2006 issues and stuff for my type set, hopefully including some Liberty seated stuff;

Canada : several George coins

UK: Pre decimal, george and victoria

NL : 2006 issues and more Wilhelmina era coins and perhaps Willem era too

SA : whatever I find, don't have yet and can afford

DR : whatever I find, don't have yet and can afford

other countries : whatever I run into, don't have yet and can afford

 

Books:

 

I'm considering "Krause standard catalog of world coins 1801-1900" and Charlton " Standard Catalog of Canadian Coins"

fewer US coins (which isn't a stretch--i've only been buying commems lately, and i'm feeling pretty disgusted with the whole process), and more euros.

 

plus, whatever else strikes my fancy.

 

that, and maybe some organization. i've started to clean off my desk today ...

In 2006 I would like to add to my upgrade my statequarter collection somewhat. I'd also like to start another collection, of which I'm not sure yet, and just keep up all of the other collections that I have going right now with out going broke.

Not a "collecting" goal, per se, my current numismatic writing goal is to complete a paper I started last year for the Sundman Lecture. My topic is the wildcat banking era.

 

I believe that we misunderstand it. Do we claim that "wildcat tailors" sew buttons on shirts using the least amount of thread in order to cheat their customers and then are nowhere to be found when the button comes off?

 

Anyway, polemics aside, I have 20 books here that I need to digest into footnotes in order to publish. That's my numismatic goal for 2006. The other work -- monthly column; quarterly journal -- will come as a matter of course.

I can't remember where some large size Chinese coin is right now.  Probably find it in three months.

last november i found a holiday card on my desk that was supposed to go out one year earlier ... it's possible your chinese coin may be under a pile on my desk and i just haven't found it yet!

No, I don't think it is outside of my office. It is under a pile somewhere. It is a large piece, about 52mm or so so it should turn up somewhere.

 

I am an accumulator-hoarder not an organiser. :ninja:

My goals may be organized but my collection is a mess. It's everywhere.

I would like to obtain an example of Roman Imperial silver denarii from at least 5 emperors that I don't have. I've got lots to go though, so that shouldn't be too hard to do.
