bust a move on my Lincoln Wheat cent folder, still needing 3 coins;

work at whatever is involved with finishing the type l ASE run;

and if I get far enough along on those two things I can then get into my 7070 a little bit more.

i'll also need to score a little gold along the way.

There are a lot of $1 US notes you sure you want to open that can of beans?

Yes, but focusing on 1923 to 1957 for now.

2020 has been such a good year, but already the following appeal to me.

1. Completing UK halfcrowns so I ahve at least one coin of every date back to 1816 (Now have back to 1896)
2. Getting a halfcrown of George I, William and Mary and James I and even Elizabeth I if possible (James II fell into my lap recently)

3. UK Florins - all back to at least 1875 (So far most back to 1887 and complete 1970 back to 1914)

4. Australian Florins complete except 1932

I will think of more as time passes on.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I hadn't really set myself any goals but I'll be happy with just closing more gaps.

Like @princetane, I had an abundant 2020, and will try to adhere to these narrow goals for the post-medieval part of my collection in 2021:

1. Add any early dated coins (for me 1474-1506) I can find that fit my existing themes. I am missing 1483, 1486-88, 1491,1497,1506 most of which will be difficult, or may never get filled (except 1506 where there is a clear target).
2. Fill the missing 17th century dates in my Kingdom of Poland OFEY (1656, 1657, 1659, 1679) two of these preferably with larger silver (1/4 thaler)from Torun and Gdansk mints.
3. Fill a handful of other gaps in the 1600s (1639, 1641, 1642, 1692, 1695) with coins that fit my other themes.
(Edit: I just took care of 1642

I'm looking forward to 2021, because I won't have to find 35 different quarters to update my album.

2) COVID-19 permitting, pick up at least one more dated coin from the 1400s (these tend to come from Europe).
...


It looks like my 1497 coin came in from the Netherlands (in full COVID lockdown, now), so my OFEY subcollection now runs from 2020 back to 1494, with no missing years.

The more of these 14xx dates any of us can pick up, the smoother the HFBCWG thread will progress.

@panzaldi,

If its not too personal, why are you selling your collection? That's just sad news to me.
