I just noticed this little gem this morning:

CONGRATS SHAWN!!!! Found10

And after a quick little PM to him, I found out that he did in fact complete his coin run! Very Happy

This is a HUGE monumental task to finish off and Shawn did it! I think that deserves a huge amount of kudos! So congrats Shawn! I couldn't be happier for you!

I'm looking forward to seeing that finished frame!

I was chatting to Tim in chat early this morning and we had both sent Shawn heads ups about the coin going up for sale. I had my fingers crossed he would get it and came home from Xmas shopping to get the PM he had cheers

Shawn huge congrats buddy its one hell of an achievement bro and a fantastic way to finish off 2010!

I cant wait to see the pictures of the full set framed!

So so happy for you dude!

A totally amazing feit - epecially with the crazy prices asked by some for the last few. Get those beers out and celebrate!

:cantina:


In all fairness your coin progress has been a source of motivation for me especially when I hit the CAT 3 and above stage - affectionally known to me as the Wall.

It is a complete a killer when you breeze though the lower catagory coins and suddenly the next cheapest is a a good few hundred. I think know without your updates and trials, I would of probally would of given up ages ago but with 12 now to go I am going to keep going and whenever the down times come I will checkout your amazing achievement.

Well done Shawn! Looking forward to seeing that quality display frame getting the complete set it deserves!

lol!

I'd love a second set to display front and back, but the only way I'd do it is if the coin market bottomed out. I've put a few other areas of my collection on hold while tracking these down, so I'm looking forward to working on those areas again. I do still have a few more coin related purchases planned though.

Congratulations Shawn! Welcome to the 62 club! I'm glad that loose set came up for sale when it did. You saved at least $400 passing on Gus' coin. Razz

This is where many coin collectors hit the crossroads: now that you have completed the set, what are you going to go collect now? Good luck on the next goal and be sure to post pics of the framed set.

Hey Shawn, I personally cant wait to see them all together framed in their glory. I remember the day I sat down to make the frame and how proud I was when they were all together, as one united.

Big congrats on the achievement!

Here is a pic of mine for those who havent seen...

Thanks Adam! It's great to see your set again and thank you again for creating your frame guide. It has been fun to put the coins in the frames over the last few years and see the number of spaces decrease. Smile I hope I can get a picture of mine that looks as good as yours.
