    Art, I really want to make my own coin collection holder but I know the materials have to be selected carefully. The wood, the finish, the felt, etc.

    So true. Materials and finishes at every step of the process need to be carefully controlled. Then after that we have the environment. Humidity, temperature, sunlight, etc. For example the “coin cabinets” employed in the 19th and 20th Century often resulted in pieces being toned but also scratched from friction. Even safeguarding pieces in a Bank vault is fraught with problems. OH MY! What to do! 

  2. It seems to me that as the general interest in collecting wanes, the need grows for the ability to produce custom displays like the wonder albums we see here. Of course and advantage would be that the coins could be safely stored in inert materials and safe locations while being beautifully displayed in a number of “collector” arrangements. 

  3. Good looking pennies. There has always been something special, to me, about Indian Head Cents. I can still recall, though rarely, getting one in change. Things like Mercury Dimes, Buffalo Nickels, Standing Liberty Quarters and yes, even, half dollars fell into that catagory. 

  4. Damaged - might have been done purposely - not uncommon. Also happens when one side is exposed to harsh conditions like sitting in a parking lot and being repeatedly run over. 

  5. Take your time and fix one thing at a time. You’ll be amazed at how well things work out. It must be nice to have your sister-in-law visiting. Enjoy the visit. My best to all of you. 

  6. Hi Reggie,


    It’s me again. First - you cannot post anything for sale or trade until you have been a member for 30 or more days AND have 25 or more posts. Please understand this is for the protection and convenience of the members. Lots of scammers and spammers out there. I will try to detail the instructions for you later in the day. I haven’t done it in a long time and do not wish to leave anything out or give incorrect information.
