Some reflections on collecting in past times, part of a commentary I am doing on the “instant collecting” of today, 2019. “Instant collecting,” via the Internet and with certified coins and 101 different sources for pricing information, would seem to make it unnecessary for most collectors to know about authenticity, grade, or much else about numismatics. Today, for most buyers, collecting is mindless. Soon, the novelty wears off, and the newcomers are gone forever.
