"Poor Man's Insanity" 100%



What Next?

The acquisition of an 1895-S Morgan in XF40 completes my registry set of Morgan Dollars. Currently, the lowest ranked 100% set of Morgans at #36. This number is not too bad considering the fact that Morgan Dollars are the #1 collected set at over 550 registered.

I?m in somewhat of a quandary as to my next numismatic adventure. If this set remains untouched, I know that this ranking will only slip further down the list as time passes. I don?t have the funds to ever climb much higher than this position.

I could peck away at upgrades a little at a time, or I could feel satisfied that I?ve invested in a set that I can be proud of. The Morgans that most need upgrades, however, are the ones I can least afford to upgrade. A ?Catch 22". My ?coin money? has dwindled considerably in the past year.

If I move on to another registry set, it must be one I can complete at far less cost than this first set.

Recent posts have shown me Bammer?s Wild West Signature Set. Nice idea with some beautiful coins. (Get those images up, Bammer, I?d love to see more of that set.) TheCoinGuy has tailored his collection down to almost 80 coins (Keying in on his current wants). We?re all different in our collecting techniques and we should do whatever makes fully enjoy this hobby.

I?ve always strived to complete a set before moving on, in my ?raw? sets and now in my certified set.

I guess the question I must ask myself here is; Is this set complete?

PS. The attached pic is just one of the final few added to this set.
