I'd love to upgrade one, possibly both, of my pre-1800 Liberty Cap coppers (cent and Half Cent). I'm guessing finding them in a condition I like is going to run at least $3000 apiece, so I'm not optimistic about actually getting both, but you never know!

Here are my current examples:




My Coin & Currency Collection
(Dansco 7070 and 8100 albums, Proof Type Set, U.S. Currency Type Set & Foreign Bullion Collection)

Wow. Some really great goals all.

For 2021 I would like to:
Complete the Ike album I recently started.
Continue to fill holes in my Mercury CAPS album (way too many to list)
Continue to work on the JFK half album (1964 to 2002) started this year
Stop being annoyed by how autocorrect changes what I typed

I have to say I did my goal for 2020 by maintaining my silver proof set, proof commemorative dollars, and any new ASE issues for the year. 2020 was the least amount purchased in close to 20 years records.

That being said I will keep the same goals but add one missing key to my other sets. Here are my choices:

1950 proof cameo Franklin half
1928 Hawaiian Commemorative half
1921 or 1921 d Walking Liberty half
Bust quarter for my 7070
1893 Morgan dollar for the date set.

I have dropped the quest for a set of $5 gold commemoratives as the price of gold has nearly doubled since I started to acquire them. Long term possibly for the future.

Priority #1 is myself and my family surviving the pandemic.

Coin related goals include;
Continue on the route of quality over quantity.
Learn more about spotting sterling, coin, and other silver in the wild at estate sales, flea markets, and such.
Try to focus on series that have been out of my reach by cutting down purchase frequency.
Always try to learn more and work on leveraging other collectable finds down the road to fund my collections. I eventually want to be an antique dealer on the side.

I would like to fill in a few final gaps in some of my collections. I have about 9 coins I'm looking to acquire that would seriously condense my list so I would be able to focus in more exclusive on my remaining few working collections. It would be a huge milestone for myself. Total for all the coins is approximately $1900-$2300 so it's doable but have to see how the year pans out.

Working on my PCGS Registry Type Set 1794 thru 1964. The early coppers was quite a task and a learning curve for me. Getting my education on coppers for sure.

My goals are to finish my Wheat cent collection & to make a beastly Die Cracks & Cud Errors Collection that I just started on yesterday. And to get as much silver as possible!

Oh, and to update/gain coin knowledge. I'm pretty rusty and have gotten my hopes up way to many times now, so I should really start doing more research.

My goal for 2021 is to collect the coins that I ordered from the U.S. Mint in 2020. I've got one enrollment that hasn't shipped for weeks, and two other orders that have been in a perpetual state of "Processing."

1. Fill one hole in each of my Barber dime and Washington quarter sets

2. Fill the final hole in my ATB clad proof sets, fill one hole in my ATB silver proof sets, and pick up the last six S-mint ATB Quarters

3. Fill one hole in my Mint Sets

4. Buy or trade for 2-5 modern US coins on my Want List

5. Avoid impulse buys, i.e. anything that is not on my set lists, and do not start any new sets or expand existing sets

6. Swap out coins in old holders, finish grading coins, soak coins from old mint sets in acetone, create new binders, and update old photos

Okay, so the U.S. Mint sent me an email today stating that it will not be able to fulfill my order for the " America the Beautiful Quarters 2020 Proof Set (20AP)," which is currently in Remind Me status. I, of course, purchased it when it was not at Remind Me status on December 18. My order has been in Processing since the 18th.

Today's email states that the U.S. Mint will be cancelling my order for the ATB Quarters 2020 Proof Set and refunding my money.

So, what did I do? I logged onto the U.S. Mint website and set up an Enrollment for the ATB Quarters Proof Set, which states that my first set in the Enrollment will be the 2020 set.

Let's see if that works.

I would like to:

1) Find a "Gold" page for my 7070
2) Pick up a second 7070 binder only
3) Get blank pages for the 7070 for 50 or so "missing" US Type coins from the original Dansco Album
