    My collection isn't very focused. There are a few areas that I am consistently looking to add to but I feel like I collect everything non-US. That said, these few pieces were impulse purchases that don't really make sense.

    Like the OP said, I would purchase them again in a heartbeat.

    1579 Spanish Netherlands Jeton

    1775 Netherlands Silver Rider, just a beautiful coin

    1792 Brazil 6400 Reis

    That's easy

    1 is a random object

    2 are related objects

    3 or more are a small collection

    Never dis your small collections, just promote objects to collections by.... wait for it... buying one or two more like them!

    I don't really have a main collection theme, but the coins outside of my main collection are mostly those that were in use in various European countries (Croatia, Italy, Germany, Austria, etc.) before the introduction of the euro, plus some Croatian commemorative coins, such as this one from 1997 commemorating Croatia joining the United Nations in 1992:

    Here are two coins I just purchased that are outside my normal collecting efforts. I just found them fascinating and plan to learn more about their history. Both are rupees from India.

    India 1873 Kashmir

    India 1904 Bundi

    Sorry but I don’t like male angels. Great coins. 1561 was a bad position for the date.

    My main collecting theme is anything related to the Protestant Reformation, but I absolutely love city-view thalers. It is an expensive side quest, so it has been awhile since I've added any to the accumulation.
