My choice is an 1883-S MS-64+ Morgan.

On a more realistic scale, I have wanted a MS 63 or better Fugio cent to go with my Ben Franklin printed or designed notes for quite a while. I COULD afford it, but never have done so. For ancients, a nice gVF-XF Irene gold solidus is also on my list, (probably near the same prices as the Fugio), and haven't pulled that trigger yet either.
seems like the solution there is to just buy a bigger house
-- a 1796 quarter
-- a 1796 or 1797 half dollar
Shouldn't surprise anyone that they are on my wish list which is where they'll probably remain for the rest of my life.
1907 $20 J-1776/1905 (Proof)
For instance, I would love to have a 35.06mm sized Meiji-era 20 Yen dragon gold piece. But is it worth shelling out around 5 million Yen, or around $46,000 for a decent example? Never. I wouldn't even consider spending that much on any single coin no matter how much I liked it. I would be too nervous to own it, I would likely have to hide it away in a vault or a safe and rarely see it. I would also probably be too afraid to show it to anyone. I may not even ever tell anyone that I have it. Owning something so valuable would make me live in fear. That sounds like about as much fun as sitting on a railroad spike.
It is a gorgeous coin, though, but I think I'll appreciate it at a distance.
For me it is a nice ms-63 or better Pan-Pac commemorative half dollar. Probably could afford it, but too many other priorities not related to the collection.
