THE JOY OF COMPLETION

"What is it about looking at a complete, matched set of coins that brings such pleasure?"

I'm sitting here; glass of wine in hand; looking at an attractive group of coins lined up on the desk; and feeling pretty good about today's numismatic accomplishment. For today, the last coin needed to complete a set, arrived in the mail- an 1875-CC, 20 Cent, NGC-63. My 4 coin uncirculated set is now complete!

I've been searching for this coin, in this condition for a couple of years, now. It's another of those issues that turn out to be far more elusive than anticipated. I guess that's at least a part of what makes the "chase" so much fun!

 

But now that the set is complete, there is another type of satisfaction- less adrenalin filled, for sure; but a warm feeling of accomplishment that comes from successfully completing a challenging task/ achieving a goal.

Again, coins and this wonderful numismatic hobby have brought a smile to my face, and satisfaction to my heart.

I think this calls for another glass of wine!!
