I've been buying Whitman coin books since I was a kid...These books hold up very well over time! I even have a couple of Whitman [penny] coin books that my grandfather started over 35 years ago, and the books are still in one piece. As long as you're working on a hard, flat surface with nothing else under your coin book, then you'll never have to worry about ripping out or punching through the back of your book. Yes, most of the coin books out there have tight cutouts for the coins... Forget the sore thumbs; I use the plastic "butt end" of an `ultra fine point' Sharpie marker to push in my coins. This method also makes it possible for my kids to push the coins in to the holes.TIP: I just learned (after buying this book) that quarters from 1964 and prior were made out of 90% silver, and are nowadays VERY difficult to find in rolls from the bank. I just bought a box of quarters from the bank (which contains 2000 quarters), and I didn't find a single quarter predating 1965! So if you're just spending fun time sorting coins with the kids like I am, you'll probably never end up using the 1932-1947 or 1948-1964 quarter folders. So you might want to think about how seriously you're going to search for these "silver" quarters before you buy this book.
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.
I have been collecting coins since my grandpa gave me my first penny book when I was 15. Over the past 20 years, I have slowly added to my collection, now collecting nickels, dimes, and quarters too. I share this passion with my kids and we collect, sort, and check every coin we come in contact with. That very first penny book was a Whitman and they remain my favorite. I have tried a few others but Whitman's quality is great. Highly recommend.**Like many others, I rely heavily on customer reviews before purchasing anything anywhere (on or at brick-and-mortar stores). So being honest about my experience with a product is very important to me. If I am presented with a good product, my review will reflect that. And if the product is not so good, well, my review reflects that too. Please vote if you found this review helpful. Thanks!
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.
Whitman coin folders are a cheap, easy, and educational way to sort your coin collection. They are always of good quality and easily display your coins as well as information about them. I own several Whitman coin folders and I will keep buying more!
I bought this particular folder for a friend, but I've had a few of my own Whitman folders over the years. They hold up really well; it's kind of amazing considering they're just paperboard. It's cool to have all the info about the coins right in the folder, too. My friend was pretty excited about having a place to put his quarters and some fun info to read about them.
These folders make coin collecting very easy. They're well made, and hold the coins tightly. Some coins might require a good push to seat, but all in all, Whitman Coin Folders cannot be beat.
I ordered several of these folders , so , my review will cover ALL OF THEM . I needed these for my collection and they are working out perfectly for my needs
