    If it gives you pleasure and you can afford it (and, if applicable, your spouse agrees), go for it!

    Nice. Looks like my collection if I were to spread it out. Nothing wrong with that.

    I have a bigger problem than you do. I have them back to 1942, excluding the sets with missing mint marks. I have a 1936 Proof set and have thought about getting the rest of the coins in between. The trouble is I love the Walkers and Mercuries, but get bored with the Lincoln cents, Jefferson Nickels and Washington quarters.

    I don't think buying them is a problem, storing them however, might be.

    it also looks like you are slacking in the silver proof set department. LOL

    Doesn't look to me like you have any problem at all buying proof sets. :)

    Loved reading all of your responses! Thanks everyone. :)
    I suppose once I finished I can start with the silver sets, then go back before '55 all the way to '36 eventually. My girlfriend is a bit concerned we don't have the space. So far for me though, not a single bit of buyers remorse hah!

    There's a HUGE industry which disputes that. Of course is depends on how you define love.
