How Do You Know?
For a number of months, I have been contemplating disposing of a large segment of my collection. Over the last 2 or 3 years, my interest in my Morgan Dollar set has waned significantly. The set has been complete for, oh I do not remember how long- 5 years?; 8 years?
I ceased seriously looking for upgrade pieces some time ago. Seldom do I look at the set (1 or 2 times per year), and I stopped examining the coins for VAMS years ago.
As I thought more about selling, I viewed the set with an eye to which coin would I keep aa a token favorite from the old set. I did not have an enthusiastic choice, and still do not! The thought of no Morgan Dollars in my collection does not render any remorse or regrets on my part.
Recently, I have been thinking a lot more about auction houses and dealers for dispersal than I am about the collection. When I brought the set out of the bank vault 2 weeks ago, I viewed it more like a grader than a collector.
The signs are adding up: LET IT GO!!!
This is a beautiful collection that deserves passion and appreciation, not just careful storage and casual viewing!
I guess this is just one more phase in sculpting MY perfect collection.
