Well... normal from the perspective of collecting. I was very active in collecting for about 5 years, until I had at least one working model, restored and functioning, of each model I wanted. I'm missing very few: 10C, 16C, 10 printing, etc. And I have several of the ones I love... 19C, 67, 97, 41, 71.
While I'm still involved enough to follow the posts here, and buy an occasional model now and then, it's slowed down. I can't justify spending the money for yet another HP-25 just to restore it, though I still throw some losing bids in.
So, don't worry. If it's an ongoing thing, you'll end up trading and selling. If not, you'll slow down when you collect the ones you want.
And if you just keep adding to the collection, there will be a day when somebody else, hopefully, will appreciate what you have done.
