I have started to focus my collection on obtaining a proof and mint set from each year. When I receive a set, I add the set and then individual coins from that set into my database. I was going thru the 65th Edition Red Book to see what the 'going prices' were and was somewhat confused on the pricing.
1966 Special Mint Set: $8.00
1966 Kennedy Half Dollar MS63: $7.00
1966 Washington Quarter MS63: $1.00
1966 Roosevelt Dime MS65: $1.25
1966 Jefferson Nickel MS63: $0.25
Finally... a member!
I dug thru the couch coushins and found enough change (haha) to get a membership with the American Numismatic Association.
What am I going to do with my membership? I don't know. I don't have time to travel so I can't go to conventions or meetings. Maybe I'll use it to better educate myself.
The only thing that urks me is my membership runs from 08/26/2011 (today - the day I purchased my membership) and ends on 07/31/2012. What?!?!?! I lost a month on my 12-month membe
What if I am out and about and happen to come across some coins for sale?
I use Liberty Street's Coin Manage software to keep track of my coins when I am at home or with my laptop. But what if I am out and about and happen to come across some coins for sale?

Trying to fill the Littleton Coin Nickel Albums (Volume 1 1938-1975; Volume 2 1976-2006; Volume 3 2007-Date).
While I am working on collecting my Lincoln Memorial cent collection, I decided to also work on my nickel collection. My goal right now is to obtain one coin of each mint for each year.
After going thru all of my change at the house and a couple rolls from the bank, I ended up finding a lot of the D and P coins for the collection.
