3) Set of Silver Ducats from The Dutch Republic.
Have not seen any silver ducats in acceptable condition anywhere from the provinces I still need for my collection (Friesland, Gelderland, Groningen, Holland, Overijssel, West-Friesland). Did buy Lighthouse Everslab to house the two coins I have and made nice home-made labels for them


I assume you are keeping an eye on the Schulman auctions? I nabbed something at the last one.

I nabbed something as well, a Dutch medal showing the Domtoren of my home town Utrecht.

I've been laser focused on pre-Confederation Newfoundland for the past 4 years or so and it's been getting a little stale. A new possible obsession is the Gothic Florin. Just picked this 1866 morsel up. They were minted for 35 years...1852-87... maybe this is the new obsession?

Easy to see how that could become an obsession.

Mid-year update:

1. Add early dated coins or coins attributable to a specific date from the 15th c. (similar to @j1m's goal). The "guardrails" on this hunt are to keep within my existing collecting themes (Low Countries, coins with images of saints, Poland). 1Q: Added a Florence grosso datable to 1405. 2Q: Added a Florence grosso dateable to 1483, an Utrecht guilder to 1464, and a Venetian soldo 1485-1486.
2. Same goal for 14th century (and earlier if possible) where I am missing 1390s, 1350s, 1320s, 1310s. 1Q: Won a Florentine grosso datable to 1347, and a quattrino datable to the 1370s. Neither in hand yet. 2Q: No progress.
3. Continue to selectively build my collection of coins with images of saints. Acquired a Saint Barbara coin of Mantova (not yet in hand due to Italian antiquities law). 2Q: Saint Crescentius on an Urbino coin .
4. Continue to build the Numista catalog for medieval Low Countries. I got involved in this in the second half of this year, so it wasn't on my 2021 goals. A great educational opportunity for me, but still a lot of work to be done. I will just say that the time I am spending on this has reduced my time for spending money on new coins, and that's not a bad thing given how much I spent the last three years. 2Q: Even deeper in on this goal than I had imagined, but continuing to learn!

No acquisitions expected in the next week, so Third Quarter update:

1. Add early dated coins or coins attributable to a specific date from the 15th c. (similar to @j1m's goal). The "guardrails" on this hunt are to keep within my existing collecting themes (Low Countries, coins with images of saints, Poland). 1Q: Florence grosso (1405). 2Q: Florence grosso (1483), Utrecht guilder (1464), and a Venetian soldo (1485-1486). 3Q: Hungarian denars (1469), (1470).
2. Same goal for 14th century (and earlier if possible) where I am missing 1390s, 1350s, 1320s, 1310s. 1Q: Florentine grosso (1347), and quattrino (1370s). 2Q: No progress. 3Q: No progress
3. Continue to selectively build my collection of coins with images of saints. 1Q: Saint Barbara coin of Mantova 2Q: Saint Crescentius on an Urbino coin. 3Q: Byzantine St. Eugenius, St. Theodore and Mary. St. Maurice on a Bishopric of Vienne (France), St. Boniface on a Frisia coin .
4. Continue to build the Numista catalog for medieval Low Countries. I got involved in this in the second half of last year, so it wasn't on my 2021 goals. A great educational opportunity for me, but still a lot of work to be done. I will just say that the time I am spending on this has reduced my time for spending money on new coins, and that's not a bad thing given how much I spent the last three years. 2Q: Even deeper in on this goal than I had imagined, but continuing to learn! 3Q: Ditto.

Update on my pickings. Everything has been aquired except the Seated dollar. I purchased a $5 gold and a $2.50 gold for close to melt early in the year, so that was a surprise I couldn't pass up. I've had cash in hand waiting for an appealing Seated dollar for a decent price, have yet to come across one. I am not entirely sure if I'll get one, just because I'd rather use the cash to buy some nice bust halves. We'll see.
1. 1914-D Cent
2. 1927-S Nickel
3. 1927-S Quarter
4. 1932-D Quarter
5. 1932-S Quarter
6. 1918-D Walking Half
7. 1919-D Walking Half
8. 1920-D Walking Half
9. Seated dollar (not 1859, 1860, 1871, 1872)
10. $2.50 Gold (any type)

Next year's goals I will focus on bust halves, maybe different 10 varieties or something along those lines. That way I can join the bust half nut club in 10 years.

I have one goal for this year:
1)I have one goal for this year:
1)Fill some of the remaining holes in "Basic U.S. Coin Design Set No Gold (1792-present)". But I'm not sure I can afford to buy an Early Dollar, Liberty Seated dollar. I think I can afford a trading dollar (but this is not accurate).


P.S.Find at home a lost silver dollar 2016 and 50 cents 1876-S.

I should have updated my plans for 2022 earlier, much earlier, around the end of February (politics intervened in everything). My plans for the sets were disrupted.
Now I have started working on 7070. I'm eyeing the silver eagle of the USA and a commemorative silver coin for this set.
Now I have started working + I have some money left from my birthday, besides, I found the ads that suit me, I hope I can make a winning bet and take them to my collection.

So for today my plan looks like:
1)Commemorative (1983-Date)
2)Silver American Eagle (1986-Date)
3)Wait for a package with an unknown coin for my set from a friend from Dallas

And there were so many plans, so many hopes.

I forgot to add two more purpose.
4)Finish my album with US National Parks
5)Start collecting "American innovations"

That coin has been my obsession forever. I mean wow! How can someone leap into Gothic florin collecting just like that. My first one was a disc with bits of lettering!

Please get obsessed with these coins!
