About this journal
I remember when I started:
I started collecting coins in 2008.
I knew nothing about certified coins until I went to a coin show and realized that certified coins was the way to go.
Now I am obsessed with the highest grades possible that I can afford to buy. I only collect NGC graded coins.
I originally concentrated on Morgans and Silver Eagles, and have since added Trade Dollars, Peace dollars, Carson City Morgans, Top 100 Vams, Hot-50 and Hitlist 40 just to name a few. My Silver Eagle set in MS & PF are both 100% complete, all in grade 70.
I started collecting Gold Eagles, and that is progressing great. I will only buy NGC graded coins, and only in grade 70, and that collection is filling quickly.
I think my Morgan collection is really getting to be superb, with 100% of the slots filled, and over 15-20 with a grade of MS-67 I am constantly looking to upgrade the lower grades as I locate them.
Coin Collecting has become my Ace in the hole for my retirement! Social Security is only guaranteed to provide the ability to afford my Starbucks !!!
