COINCIDENCE OR THE COIN GODS AT WORK?

GOOD THINGS COME IN PAIRS!!

While looking through some of my collection, I was struck by the fact that several of my key coins were acquired in pairs.

 

On May 15, 2002, I found a 1901-S and 1913-S Barber Quarter in a favorite dealer's inventory. I swallowed hard several times, and purchased both. Thank God! - as I haven't seen their equals since.

 

On March 13, 2003, the same dealer offered me a "deal" on an uncirculated 1884-S and 1889-CC Morgan dollar. On this occasion,I swallowed hard and backed down. I passed on the 1889-CC! This is my biggest numismatic regret so far!!

 

On May 20, 2005, I reviewed another dealers inventory, and to my surprise, there sits 2 coins I have been searching for- uncirculated examples of the 1894-O and 1895-O Barber Dimes. I quickly pulled the trigger.

 

Is it just a coincidence, or do the coin gods send me (or collectors, in general) those special coins in pairs? Is this a test of my willingness to "break" my collecting budget?

 

Finally, notice the dates of acquisition. "Spring has been VERY, Very good to me!!!
