Great thread...helps personalize things a bit, too. I'm already Googling "Plum Crazy Dodges."
Anyway, in my case...
In many languages deriving from Latin, the suffix "-ista" indicates a specialist in, or follower of, whatever the word it's attached to signifies, as in "fashionista" or "Sandinista." Since one of my two main collecting interests is the tokens definitively catalogued in 1922 by a guy named Richard Dalton, voila
Dalton's numbering system is still in use, so here's my Bible and stockbook:
I've managed to accumulate almost 300 of them now, without duplication, but because of the absurd rarity (and cost) of many of them I can't imagine ever being able to complete the run. Nevertheless, I persist...thrill of the chase, and all that.
I never pay too much for my tokens...but every now and then I may buy one a little too soon.
