Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish but you only spend it once.

Collect what you enjoy and can learn from. You will lose money when you sell so plan accordingly.

Lurk on each new CCF forum for at least a month before posting your opinion (it is hard to hear when you are the one with the open mouth).

The more quickly you want a coin, the more you will pay. Patience pays off with a lower overall cost.

Corollary:

The more quickly you want to sell a coin, the less you will get.

Not my quote, some coin collector told me this when I started the hobby,

"Coin collecting is a hobby where you can spend all your money and still have some left behind."

If your just starting out in this hobby I feel that it's important to start a log book to document your collection as you build it. It's much easier than waiting for a few years and having hundreds if not thousands of coins to document. It also easier for your next of kin in the event of your demise!
