At least that’s my rationalization.
It's good though, to exercise some self-discipline and structure so you don't wind up with a huge pile of low value stuff IMO...
If you haven't read this book, it's an
easy read that you might enjoy.
Of course next summer will mark 60 years.
I will have to give that book a read. Looks interesting
That's my rationalization. I sink money into a hobby that I can get back out if I needed to. More fun than putting it in the bank.
history history, and economic history all in one way. You can see hyperinflation in coinage of different years, you can see rulers on the obverse, you can see the tools of war which were engraved on reverses, you can see the God's people believed in.
This is why I collect, and why I never plan to stop.
..well, idk about getting it back, but you'll have at least what you bought
Rare potato coins circa 1980s.
History is for sure a good side effect of coin collecting. I mainly collect 1700s-1800s Italian coins and I've learned a bit about Italian history, and the different Kings and the Royal families that ruled back then.
I went to Italy 20 years ago and went into a coin shop in Milano and the owner showed me some coins from 1700's Naples and Sicily and talked about which King was on them and I didn't know any of them. Now if I went back to Italy I'd know each and everyone of those Kings.
Sound alot like me...I am getting ebay down...lol
