What do you collect? And what pieces would you like to add to made the collection wonderful?
I have a Pinball thread going on. I have three machines, and am about to add a fourth. I have The Lost World (the Bally 1977 one, not the one with the movie tie-in), Star Trek, and The Black Knight. I am looking at buying one of five more, but for the ideal collection, I’d add all five, plus an old mechanical one called Card Whiz, one called Gilligan’s Island, and one called Pinbot. Then I would have the most awesome pinball machine collection in the world.
I also have a coin collection. Right now, I am working on sets of seated dimes, and 3-cent pieces, both silver and nickel. I would like to finish both of those, plus my set of Standing Liberty quarters, and get the two very expensive half-cents I need to finish my half-cent collection. Then I’d buy a St. Gaudens $20 gold piece. Year doesn’t matter, only condition, because I just want one. Eventually I would find something else to collect, like half-dimes, or shield nickels, and I’d wish I could wish to finish those, but really, in coin collecting, the fun is in the hunting, not the having. (Although the having is nice too.)
What do you wish for?
