This week’s poll I want to know what kind of collector do you consider yourself to be?

I am not asking what you collect but how. I want to know if you buy raw coins and save them in an album or does your collection have to be only graded coins or coins that will be grade.

Do you pick from pocket change or do you go to the bank and buy rolls to search for something interesting?

For this poll, I thought of ten different categories of collectors. If you have a different strategy that is not in the list, add it to the comments below. Since there is no “right way” to collect, I would like to hear what other people do. Let me know what suits you best!

Yes, that is my set of Somalia Motorcycle coins. I bought them from a dealer at a Baltimore show.
