The VEN 104 is starting to get.... annoying...

I'm starting to get frustrated and impatient for some VEN 104s to pop up in good grades. There's a 65 EPQ and a 66 EPQ that keep getting relisted and going unsold because... no one wants those. lol Anyway...

I'm getting tempted to just snap up that 66 just to fill in the hole in my Soberano set that keeps taunting me but I know that's a mistake.

The rest of the set just came together so fast and so easy and now that one gap is taunting me and graded examples of the new 2021 notes still haven't hit the market yet to distract me...

I want a 67 EPQ or a 68 EPQ. I just paid to get a 68 EPQ of the 102a to replace a 66 EPQ 102a*. I just put money into bumping a 66EPQ VEN91 to a 68EPQ in the competitive set... I don't want to buy any more 66 EPQs right now! Even if it is cheap!

I'm probably ultimately going to try to make all the 66 EPQs in my Venezuela competitive sets 68 EPQs, but I'm going to try to get different varieties to simultaneously build up the signature set in a fun way. I'm not going to start actively chasing variety sets, but if you're upgrading anyway, why not at least get different varieties so they build-on / expand what you have instead of just making redundancies?

I have money to spend and stress shopping to do... If these notes don't pop up soon I may start upgrading Zimbabwean 3rd and 4th dollar notes and then the wife is really going to be looking at me sideways... lol

I'd say wait but I have no credibility on the subject. I will say that the peace of mind of having a complete set, no matter the grades, is worth it and if a higher graded note comes along later so be it, you pick it up and since we're talking common moderns it's not going to cost a fortune to upgrade.

Normally I might do it just to spend my eBay bucks this month but they changed those to be good for a year now.

I think the thing that should really give me pause is the move is coming in less than 4 weeks and I should hold orders until I can switch to the new address for delivery.

I'm trying to busy myself with updating my 2nd dollar set and focusing on that activity - which doesn't cost money. But I am seriously considering spending the money to bump my old 65 EPQ 10 Billion to a 68 EPQ.

I just upgraded a 64 to a 66EPQ (Top Pop), it felt sooo gooood. :baiting:

It's definitely tempting, including just to replace an old tinted holder with a new gen holder.

Hope you're liking the re-vamp on the 2nd dollar set. :)

Haven't had time to check it out yet but I'm very excited to do so, probably this weekend, work's been crazy busy. I'm sure it'll be great.(thumbsu

Probably for the best. Lol it has been getting updates every evening and in the mornings when I decide I'm done talking to annoying clients for a little while.
