Back a couple of months ago something did happen that I actually knew was overdue. My wife has always supported my collecting, never complained when I made a major purchase, and is aware of how much I enjoy the hobby. But, she was getting very concerned about all these coins at the house. The fact our "vacation season" was starting soon made it even worse. In the past I always stored the coins with a couple of our neighbors while on vacations. Well, to make this shorter all my coins are now in a safe deposit box at our bank. At first it was hard for me to do because I enjoy looking at our coins so much. But, I inventoried everything and packed them away. During the inventory I got a couple of nice surprises along the way, so that helped soften the blow some. I have now made a decision I will add to the safe deposit box as additional coins are acquired, but will not look at the coins for a little over two years. I think this will be alot of fun to put the collection back together after this time. I have tried so many things over the years to do as a hobby. The one and only regret I have is that I didn't start this one at least ten years earlier. Dan, I will ask you to think about something. How many new members have you seen come to this forum stating they used to have a collection, sold it (some gave it away), and were very sorry they ever did it. So my answer to you is not to get out, slow down maybe, but not quit. Maybe a refocus is what you need more, maybe a break, but I think if you sell part or all of what you have you will regret it. I have seen the quality of a lot of what you have. Although very different than mine I know a beautiful collection when I see one.
