    If you had to sell all of your various coin collections for whatever reason, is there one you just would never sell no matter what? Which one would you never part with? Why not?

    My world "coins with insects". Having fun collecting them. Some are very scare. 2 coins took me 14 years to find. There were some other world gold coins that I sold because of very hard times.

    I fear that tax collection will stick with me for life . . .

    Hmm, interesting question. If I had to only keep a portion of my collection....

    As a hoarder the question makes me sick to my stomach really. The thought of selling coins is nauseating, in the worst of "Hoarders" type of sickness. I have always known I can be a hoarder, with some family members fighting the tendency, (I think growing up poor accentuates the idea that owning stuff gives you security). I guess if I had to answer it would be my Thai collection, since my children are half Thai, and as such it is part of their heritage and I couldn't at the end of the day ever sell that. I would probably keep at least one coin of my children's namesake as well, like my avatar.

    There are a couple coins my grandmother gave me (coins I don't have imaged) as well as a store token from a place my family used to own in Pinckneyville, IL that I'd never sell, but this Moroccan 50 Francs is probably the favorite piece in my collection and won't ever be sold. Believe it's NGC MS66PL

    As for full collection, I would go with my Mercury Dimes. I put that set together as my first ever set as a teenager. I remember my grandfather (who introduced me to coins) just shaking his head as I purchased them. To him you don't purchase coins, you roll search for the ones you want, but by the 1990's you just couldn't find those in circulation. Yes, I am an adult now with a professional career to where I could afford better dimes, but those worn Mercuries, some even harshly cleaned, are still my favorites. That was a time for me collecting was just having fun in collecting it. Ignorance was bliss when I didn't have to worry about luster, scratches, die states, or cleaning....just the date and mint mark and the thrill of the hunt at the coin shop.
