What My Collection Will Be

and other ramblings.

Since I posted my last journal entry, the days have flown by. Between work, home improvements and really doing some thinking on my collection.

First off, I have 2 more competitive sets to add. I decided my name here (Iowa Silver Baron Bammer) should be one of two components of my collection. However there will be some gold (for example my Carson City type set and a little foreign gold). The second major focus will be the west, as evidenced by my (soon to be updated) Wild Wild West custom set and my western mint custom sets. The mint custom sets will only be in existence until (or if) NGC decides to do by mint sets for silver as they do now for gold (my New Orleans gold set). Included in all of this will be a 19th century type set, so a little copper and nickel will show up, as willa very few clad coinage (half dollar type set and a few satin finish Lincolns and state quarters).

I will be continuing with some currency also, so if any of you are also interested in currency, check my sets from time to time. I have no timetable for any of this, so please don't get discouraged if you see no additions in certains sets for a period of time.

And finally, I'll be updating the quality of my pictures. I feel I've got the hang of getting good coin pics, as evidenced by my attached photo for this journal, the obverse of the 2007P Jamestown commemorative. (By the way, the silver commem dollars and the silver state quarters and ATB quarters will show up in my competitive sets.)

My first main goal for the rest of the year is to redo my custom sets and get a good start with the photos.

Thanks for reading.
