Additions 2019
After every turn of the year, the key question for me is, when it comes to my collection, how many piggy banks will I get this year? And if there are unexpectedly many, where do I put them? My criteria for selecting what goes into the collection are becoming stricter. Although, if I can take over a complete collection, I'll give in again (check it out below!). 2019 was a good harvest year for piggy banks, as can be seen from the pictures.
Additions 2020 (1)
The reason why I have already so many additions early 2020 is this: I took over the collection of Mrs. Barbara de Waal-Huisman (78), who died on December 16, 2019. She had a collection of more than 100 authentic piggy banks. Of which a relatively large number from Sweden, where she had a sister. Of those more than 100 (108 to be exact) I smashed 10 because they were too damaged and took  36 in my collection. The remaining 62 go to Xanten (Germany), in the "Museum rund ums Geld" by Norbert Müller (fellow member of EMBC). So the collection remains partially intact in keeping with our motto "saving our (and your) heritage".
I register the 36 I have included in my collection as the “(sub-)collection Huisman”.

And more.......
Additions 2021
2021 Covid-19 still exists and my piggy bank collection was surprized with two nice and rare additions. It was a start.......
Additions 2022
This year started slow with two new ones (Januari). My collection is now just over 1200 old fashioned pig piggy banks.
Additions 2023
The first acquisitions in 2023 are a Danish and a very nice Swedish piggy bank. And then 16 more piggy banks. Including 2 beautiful Japanese ones (still not entirely clear why these were imported to Sweden so much) and in the last days of the year the white AH piggy bank that I bought despite the damage, because of its rarity. In terms of quantity, 2023 was a lean year. I am not dissatisfied in terms of quality. Collectors always want more, that's a fact. But I have to remain selective, also because of the space I have to place them in the display cabinets.
