After taking loads of pictures, I think I've finally got one I'm pretty happy with. Smile

I now present my complete POTF 62 coin set. A big thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way and followed my journey. It's taken roughly 5 years from when I first started picking up coins. I still can't believe it is finished. The frame is finally full. cheers

A thing of beauty Shawn. Congrats on finishing the set. Whats up with the red on the one coin, second one in the second row? Camera flash?

My big congratulations on finishing the set Shawn!

Please excuse the probably dump question but what is the 63rd coin?

Nice frame btw. - are you going for a second set now to show the backside of the coins?

Hey Chris, the red light is a reflection from my camera. It was showing up even worse originally on another part of the glass, so I cloned that part out, but didn't want to touch the area on the coin. The Anakin coin is one of the extra shiny ones, so it picked up the reflection still.

The coins are pretty much alphabetical. I've seen a few collectors go a different route, but I prefer this method.

Thanks Uli. Some info on the 63rd coin can be read here on the archive. The 63rd can be found in gold, silver, and bronze. As of right now, I do not plan to pursue this coin mainly because of cost, but I won't ever say it will never be on my want list. Smile

Many thanks for the info on the 63rd coin! What is your 63rd coin?

The one right below the POTF "sign".

The one on the top in my frame is the smaller luke x-wing coin.

Basically Kenner toyed with smaller coins in the beginning and struck a bunch of these. Then for whatever reasons they opted for the larger size.

Awesome Blossom..Extra Awesome! Smile

The frame looks amazing Shawn i bet you can now kick back and look on it with great satisfaction!

In part i feel like i was on-board this journey at times over the last few years and thinks it was fantastic that the last coin came up to finish 2010 on a high cheers

Going for a full coin set on a budget serves as a great lesson regarding the patience needed to stay the distance in this hobby.

Reminds of that joke from the film colours

"There's two bulls standing on top of a mountain. The younger one says to the older one: "Hey pop, let's say we run down there and fuck one of them cows". The older one says: "No son. Lets walk down and fuck 'em all".

Massive congrats Shawn on completing the set!

Whats your plans for 2011? Back to the Luke Jedi Focus or are you gonna go for the 63rd / other coins?

Jay

Thanks Jay! I certainly agree with you here. I don't have the same budget as some other collectors, but if you want something and can manage your money, you can still put together a great run of something. (It also helps by not collecting every little modern item coming out. Wink )

As for the future, I'll quote myself from RS Smile

Quote :
As far as future coin related purchases, I'd like to get the coin folder, a UDE, and finish my basic Droids set in which I still need Fett. I've got a Luke Jedi focus that has taken a bit of a back seat while I've been collecting these, so I'd like to get going back on that again.

I was lucky enough to see the framed set a little earlier so have already congratulated Shawn but that's an awesome achievement so wanted to say well done here too.

:cantina:

I loved the story about the two bulls Jay! A very cool bit of advice for the long term!
