Happy Rare Coin Collecting

Transversely, collecting solely for investing is a tedious and difficult enterprise with no guarantee for reward (as with nearly all forms of investing).People who collect just to study price trends for financial gain never appreciate the beauty and history of rare coins, thus, deprive themselves of a rewarding experience. Because so little is sown, little shall be reaped.

That they enjoy their art so well, makes their rewards all the more richer. Happy hunting.
