Goal: 250 #1 Registry Sets
This last December I retired. No longer having the funds to continue building and keeping up with all of my sets, I gave in to the realization I would not make the Goal I had set for myself many, many years ago to reach 250 #1 Registry Sets. I was in the 220's at the end of the year and knew I would have to start selling off all of my coins to bridge the gap between retiring from work and waiting a few more years before starting to take social security. I decided to remove a lot of coins from my sets and start prepping them for sale. I had a few good months at the beginning of the year although things have slowed down a bit lately. I was still buying and selling and today, just for the fun of it, I decided to load my coins back into my sets as well as all of the new coins I had purchased this year. To my surprise after adding up all of my #1 sets I was at 252, just over my goal. A huge sigh of relief and a great deal of satisfaction came over me as I realized I achieved my goal after all.
