I have had other Collector's Folders that were awful. It took forever to get a coin in the slot. BUT this one was great. The coins went in soooo easy and they stayed.
This is a great product that is not only easy to use, but appears to be of lasting quality. If I was going to alter the design, I would consider moving the informational pages to the very back in their own area, so as not to interfer with viewing and coin determination. I might also include a tips pages for how and where to find some of the harder to find minted quarters. As an example, I am finding it hard to find a "P" mint quarter from New Mexico. Information regarding quantities minted by each mint would be helpful and whether or not they are all in circulation would help also.
I had to rate this album, because I just wrote a bad review about another Warman's album. I believe in being fair :) and hence, this album deserves a good review.I am not a serious coin collector, so I do not know if these are the best way to preserve your coins. There might be other albums, which make sure your coins don't come into contact with air, don't scratch ...etc. But these are great for beginners like me. They give you a way to keep track of the coins you have, and put them in one place, where you can show it to your friends and family.The coins fit perfectly inside the slot, and the Album has a nice finish to it.
The quarters don't fit in the slots. Regardless of how I push they don't stay and my thumbs hurt. I got so pissed I tried tapping them in with a hammer- they still wouldn't stay. I emailed my complaint to the manufacturer over a week ago and have heard nothing in response.
My son just recently informed me he wanted to starting collecting the State Quarters so I did a little research and ended up purchasing this State Quarters 1999-2009 Deluxe Collectors Folder by Warman's. Not only is the cover the traditional red, white, and blue but it seems to be made of high quality. My son is able to easily snap in the quarters into their spot. The bonus of this folder is it includes key facts about each state that he's found interesting.
I really like how this folder looks, it's glossy and made with good material. The only problem is that the holes are too small. In order to put quarters in the hole you have to use a rubber mallet. But this gives you a chance to scratch your coins. Either the holes are too small or the mint is making the wrong size coins. I doubt it's the mint. This folder will give you a good work out and the possibility of damaging your coins/folder. Skip this folder and go for a much better album.
It may be just my particular folder but it was hard to get my coins in those slots. It wore me out putting my coins in! But I still like the folder. Keep in mind though that it's not a map folder; it lists the coins by the issue year and has slots for both P & D mints. The folder itself has a nice glossy finish. A nice touch in my opinion. I just prefer the Warman's folders over the Whitman's. To me Warman's are neater and cleaner looking. The folder size is consistent with other Warman's coin folders.
You only see one side of the coin when it's in the folder. To get them in, I needed a hammer to pound the little buggers into the holes. Good luck getting them back out.
