- you are more interested in coin collecting than simply collecting them because you received them as gifts - you don't mind buying coins, especially if they are inexpensive - you are more interested in browsing coin shops than a casual collector - you spend time surfing the net looking at coins sold on eBay or other coin sites - you collect coins without a clear-cut objective - you are inclined to increase your knowledge of coins and might soon contemplate becoming an advanced coin collector as you establish contact with more serious collectors who might inspire you
The Advanced Collector: The Extreme Collector
You can categorize yourself as an advanced collector if...
- you find yourself smitten by the "Hobby of Kings" - you are either a “generalist” (a collector who wants to obtain a wide variety of coins) if you can to obtain an amazing collection you’re your available resource; a “completist” (a collector who wants to collect a complete set of a specific type) - you lack resources and will opt for a smaller number of coins to complete a set, if you are a “completist” - as a “completist”, you prefer collecting coins from a certain historic period, nation, or you prefer collecting tokens or coins with errors.
