I was happy with #3 in my beloved 1971 proof set, but now I fell down to 5
Ya see! That's what I get for devoting too much time (and $)on the comics! I was too close to getting a PF69Deep Cam Half, and then I could of held #2 for awhile.
I see that the time has come to start sifting through my collection (s) and getting some funds raised should another opportunity arise to aquire a "coin of interest".
It's all good. Congrats to those that made the grade! Jealous? Yes. I'll admit it. Just gave me something to strive for? Yes, I'll admit that too. Will I ever attain #1...doubt it, unless I win the lottery. And even that's a fantasy to share. If I ever did win the lottery, I would want to create the highest grade, oldest proof set that I could with all the same grade, like an 1834 proof 64 cameo or something. Then when I was done with that, I would get THE highest grade 1793 Silver dollar...well...heck, I just may make the oldest mint set!
With that said, what would YOU do if you won the lottery? Say, and easy after taxes 10 mil?
But for now, I'll just stick with working on my 1971 :-)
