After a bunch of years collecting colonials I decided to liquidate my modest set through one of the upcoming Heritage Showcase auctions. It has been fun to filling in those registry blanks spaces and having rack up several of those NGC awards along the way ... it give one a little feeling of accomplishment. Colonials have been fun to collect with so much history and stories behind each of them .I think NGC did a nice job in establishing their "US Colonial Basic Design Set, 1652-1796" registry as it turned out to be a great vehicle for getting your feet wet in colonials, to track ones progress, and to experience the breath of the history and designs of colonials. I believe these registry really help a collector to create a goal and to help stay focus on their set.
If interested in colonials, this is the link to my listed pieces in the Upcoming Action.
