I would like to be down to maybe just a couple hundred that are truly my collection. That will be more than enough for family to deal with if and when something happens to me. (I'm 60)

Quote from: Babybearjs on November 24, 2011, 12:56:18 AMthanks guys! the problem that I have, as some of you might have seen before is family that doesnt care about personal effects after they leave. my dads estate was totally lost to "Stupid" people, my sisters... he had a whole shop of woodworking tools, HO scale trains, various antiques... all lost because no one cared.... to this day I don't know what happend because one of my sisters, who was a druggie, supposedly "lost" my dads effects... wonder how much stuff wound up in the pawn shop? so, you can see my concern...

One thing I think happens is that one man's treasures are another's trash. I really understand my hobby, but to some, it's just a collection of old junk. It's too bad that others don't take the time to realize just what is involved. Of course the other issue is when there is someone who does as you describe and somehow "looses" the inheritance due to less than appropriate acts.
