Breaking the Collecting Focus Rule
It is a long held belief that a collector should find a focus of the collection and then obtain items within that focus. That is absolutely true. So the question is what does Joseph ‘Joe’ Patrick Kennedy Sr. and Francis Charles Jenkins have to do with my early Canadiana focus? Nothing though in spite of the good advice previously shared I chose to purchase an item related to each of these American gentlemen. Why? As a collector, I felt the “stories” that accompanied each of these items very special, interesting to me and thus I wished to own them.
