Is it just me or are there other collectors out there that have several sets/Albums on the go at the same time.
I have at least a dozen to try and complete and at the same time I always am on the lookout for upgrades to my completed sets

I am working on my Birth Year Set, just waiting on one order. Then will update my want list and get more in the set. And I am waiting on the 2012 US mint set to get other albums updated. So, that makes 7 albums/sets that I am working on.

That sounds pretty interesting! Just US coins or World coins?

It always sparks my interest when I see a coin from my birth year.

This is the list for me:
Lincoln cent P&D from circ
Jefferson nickle P&D from circ
Roosevelt dime P&D from circ
ATB quarters P&D (haven't seen a single one in circ here in WV, buy complete year set once a year on eBay)
Kennedy half P&D (don't circulate, usually buy on the Bay)
Presidential dollar P only (my mother is doing this for me with rolls from her bank!)
ASE circ (mom again) & proof (mom pays $50 towards this every year)
Proof sets (again mom and dad get these for me every year !)
Merc dimes
Dansco 7070
Do I have an addiction ? If so I'm enjoying it

I have an Ike set that is three or four coins away from completion, a Kennedy set I am working on, I am about half way finished with my proof set collection, working on a Lincoln penny set, collecting random commemoratives as I go, working on a Morgan dollar set, building up a high quality SLQ set, and plugging in all the rest as I go.

Sticking to just one series or album is boring in my opinion and collecting is all about having fun. Only problem is that I forget what all I need for all the different sets.

The sets that I'm working on are just what I can get out of circulation:
Lincoln Cents: through 1974 (though pre-1941 I only have two)
Jefferson Nickles: through 1970
All Kennedys, Ikes, Sacagaweas, and Presidentials.

Oldest coins in my collection: US silver ~ 1839 O dime | US non-silver ~ 1851 Large Cent | Foreign Silver ~ 1945 Australian Sixpence | Foreign non-silver ~ 1910 UK Penny | Ancient ~ Constantine era Roman

Over 100 Albums and constantly adding more and upgrading the present ones. All US coins. Some Plastic tubes of Canadian coins, a few boxes of foreign coins in 2x2's, way to many duplicates in 2x2's in boxes, piles of rolls.

I have too many.
  • FEC/Indian Cents
  • Lincoln Cents (mostly from roll-hunting)
  • Buffalo Nickels (done excluding varieties)
  • Jefferson Nickels (100% from roll-hunting, down to 5 holes)
  • Mercury Dimes (two different sets)
  • State and Territory Quarters (silver proofs only)
  • ATB Quarters P, D, proof and silver proof (once a few packages arrive, I'll be 100% up-to-date)
  • JFK Halves (almost complete, mostly from roll hunting except 2011-present)
  • Eisenhower Dollars incl. Proofs (P&D has one hole, missing most of the proofs and silvers)
  • Sacagawea Dollars incl. Proofs (P&D is complete)
  • Presidential Dollars incl. Proofs
There are others I'm aspiring to collect but I haven't focused on much yet:
  • 3 Cent Silvers
  • Standing Liberty Quarters
  • Walking Liberty Halves
  • US Type Set

What I have left to complete...

Lincoln Cents, Indian Head cents, Buffalo nickels, Mercury dimes, and the 7070 type set.

Of course, I am always adding the modern coins as they come out (which includes the new ATB quarters).

A few years ago I was diagnosed with NADD (Numismatic Attention Deficit Disorder)...I can't seem to focus on one collection/series.
