Jokes apart Mark, it takes some willpower to collect things in a thematic manner. When i started with coins, within a blink of an eye i found myself dealing with the most unrelated bundle of specimens that one can imagine. So i got rid of coins and went into old weapons; suddenly all types, not just one theme. Glad i got rid of the Ethnos but still, a hole mess of a collection; to call it eclectic would be far too presumptious. Meaning that, if i tried to set up a thematic display, i would have to revolve the all current disposition and chose among a thousand curious kept in cabinets to get at something like a ... would be theme display .
