A great way to keep your collection of change in a handy thin book.Your coins stay in place, and are not easily lost. Most have dates and mint marks, that way you can see what you have or still need. Some books even give a little information on the coins you have. Great for the beginner or exp. person.
I bought the entire collection of these folders that is available at the moment. They all arrived within a day of each other, as expected. New users may think they seem small but they are a very compact and inexpensive way to keep your coins organized. A great tool for the beginner or the experienced coin collector. Be sure to lay the binder on a flat, hard surface like a desk or kitchen counter when entering your coins and you should have no problems.
tri fold book, nice layout, easy to read, has explanation about the coins, how many minted, made and printed in china, some slots are very difficult to add the coins, need to angle the coins and press down hard. some are easy to add.
My mother had a giant jar of quarters and three "bored" grandkids, so I ordered some of these collection folders and let them at it. It was fun for the whole family to sort and see what we could find. We are still missing some of the quarters, and there isn't a coin that passes through my kids' hands that isn't inspected for the right dates. The fun continues....
Well put together and at a decent price. This is what I used and my grandfather used when he was a kid. Whitman has been around for a long time and they do a good job. The reason I only 4 stared was because after a couple of times of removing a coin it doesn't keep it tight. Great product.
Great fit, excellent quality. I bought this for my nine year son to add to our collection (which is steadily growing in scope AND size). Because of the scarcity of some of the other things we collect, the process of filling an album can be a little too slow-going for such a young kid. This worked out great because he gets faster gratification by just digging around in his pocket change (and the couch). Whitman has definitely set the standard.
Bought for the kids to get excited about collecting something. It worked out well. Every few months after saving all our lose change we make a night of it, after a while, finding a coin we need is a big deal.
I purchased two Whitman Washington Quarters 1965-1987 folders to assemble two complete sets of brilliant uncirculated quarters from 1965-1998 (all the clad issues prior to the state quarter series). Obviously, all the coins I wanted to insert in the slots had full, unworn rims. HUGE PROBLEM: ALL THE SLOTS inside the folders were a smidgeon too small for the quarters. The only way I could get a quarter to stay in each slot was to angle each piece into the slot, lay a quadruple folded towel over each coin, then use a hammer to pound each coin into it's correct space without causing any damage to the coin. The only positive thing to mention is that any quarter in these folders will not be popping out anytime soon! NOTE: I had to do this with EACH and EVERY quarter to assemble these two sets. It was an absolute pain and hassle to say the least. I don't remember my original folders I purchased in the mid-1960's to be anywhere near this difficult to work with. Perhaps a telling sign why these new folders are so flawed is that noted inside the folder are the dreaded words "Made in China". My older Whitman folders I purchased years ago clearly state they were manufactured in America. Oh, for the good old days......PLEASE BE ADVISED: I also needed Whitman folders for Washington Quarters dated 1988 to 1998 to complete these two sets, and purchased two of the "generic" Washington Quarter folders with no dates listed inside. Unlike the problems I had with the 1965-1987 folders as I indicated above, EVERY quarter dated 1988-1998 filled each slot EFFORTLESSLY, with NO multi-folded towel and hammer needed. If looking for Whitman quarter folders that have slots that actually fit the size of the quarter, perhaps these are truly the way to go. Oddly enough, the "generic" Washington quarter folders also state they are manufactured in China. Go figure.
