Coin Album or Slabs?

  1. I just got my complete set of state quarters but i'm not sure how i should store them. The album I want to store them in is about $30 but I could send to NGC for $12. Which is better?

    Refer to post #7. The first 5 coins will cost you 12 dollars each. Which would be $60 dollars for all 5. I dont know if the fees change after the first 5 coins or not. You'll have to check their web site.
  12. Wow that's expensive. I'll just go with the album then. Thanks for the help

    I'm curious as to the current storage media you're using. There are many different ways to store and or display this coins. You should think about what you really would prefer before spending any tangible money.

    I prefer to be able to access my coin quite easily and I want to be able to view them quite easily, while affording myself the peace of mind that they are well protected.

    Take your time and do some real looking around.

    Congrats on completing your set. I have several and I know I will enjoy them for many years to come.

    You're probably not talking about this kind of album, but this is the easiest and cheapest way I've found to house my collect, which I view quite often. Mine tend to twist at times because I handle them a lot. I've developed a technique in turn them correct. If it gets too annoying I change the flip. I like being able to handle the coin raw at any time. Less then 5 cent a flip and 70 cents a page.

    Hey Allen,
    Well what your attachment looks like is something I am looking for. I have not decided if to buy an album or do that. I need my piece of mind that my coins will be protected and I want to be able to easily see them. I have read SAFLIPS are good. Not vinyl. I am a rookie. :D

    Makes sure you use a "D" ring binder if you go with this style. There are different grades of 2X2 page holders. Some I would never use, too lite. I like the heavy duty type.

    I'm doing the Presidential Dollar series with 3 sets of P Mint and 2 sets of Denvers, on one page, so one page per year, 20 dollar face value, equal to or greater then MS65. I have to pay double to pick through 2X2's UNC Denvers at the coin shop to find ones nice enough for my set. Its about all I can really afford to do with coins right now. An investment into my grading skills practices. Its fun, I enjoy it.

    Keep on Collecting!!
