Some coin album scans


Recommended Posts

I've been getting around to sort what I have and filter out what I want to get rid of. These albums would probably be one of the last that I may get rid of.

These albums look impressive especially the old Dansco classic albums. You'll find it hard to believe that they were manufactured 50 years ago and still hold up better than some of the cheap stuff that are made these days. In fact, I believe one Japanese company had been inspired to make a similar album which is shown below. These are better than the Chinese albums that I have, featuring China and Taiwan. I had trouble scanning the Taiwanese coin album as the plastic faded into dark yellow and I had to adjust the color manually. On top of that, the coins were rattling - not one I would recommend. Cover is cheap vinyl like material. I'm not a big fan of the one side display album - shown with the Papua New Guinea coins.

It's a real shame that such albums are just nearly impossible to obtain these days as well as having less choice when it comes to world coin albums. I've been designing some digital albums and if they ever go ahead, this is what they will look like.

I have just attached a few resized scans of the albums. I still have to go through fixing the scans up. This will take some time. Please also feel free to post some of your coin albums!

Nice stuff there! :rockon:

About the poor quality of the numismatic accesories, in the same situation are the Leuchtturm 2x2's. Many of my silver coins preserved in 2x2's became yellow/greenish and greasy after 5-6 years. And they claim that the foil is Chloride free.

Nice coins and album pages. I guess the profits just aren't there for the album manufacturers in these times.

I got around to working out three albums. Took me a bit longer than I hoped.

 

Here's the three.

 

New Guinea (1935 - 1945):

These are really nice. I enjoy the albums that you've created. It's such a nice way to display your collections.
