I'm back at it and am excited to be focusing on my coin collection.

 

I have been focusing on collecting a type set of early commemorative coins. I'm nearly there. I have 8 more coins to get and of course they are the most expensive ones. I'm thinking about the Antietam coin or the Battle of Gettysburg coin for when my tax return arrives. I also need the following: Isabella Quarter, Missouri, Hawaii, Hudson, Spanish Trail, Cincinnati. To maintain my collection at MS65 or better, I will need to pry open my wallet as the remainder may cost me above four grand.

Being disabled I don't have a lot of spare cash laying around. I'll have to get creative when I'm ready.

Welcome back and I hope you get the Antietam or the Gettysburg you are looking for. As for the rest, your list is indeed quite daunting. Remember that collecting coins is more of a marathon than it is a sprint. Hang in there and you will eventually realize your goal. All the Best!

This is great news!  Sometimes, you have to reach for what you want/need.  But as Gary said, patience is key, as you don't need to be financially strained.  Only you can determine a feasible personal coin budget.  Any progress is good progress.  Best of Luck to you!

Good advice on the marathon vs. the sprint. After many years I have grown more patient. I still buy because I have to have it coins but for the most part I'm patient.

I got my Antietam at the local coin shop. I felt better about the purchase because I got to hold it and examine it and I bought locally which I enjoy.
