I can get 2x2 pages for like 50 cents each or so and 100 2x2 mylar flips for like 6 bucks. and If I ever wanna bust one out to sell or give away ect its not really a big deal.
I would love to know your opinion of the Intercept Shield folder for Ike's. I've been looking and debating. Does it hold all 32 coins? Any blank slots?
Totally agree on this one, it can be irritating to have paid top dollar for their product than you fight the hanging cardboard chads.
I'll look tonight and see if it has extra slots, I believe it does. The coin easily fits within the slot. The plastic slide is not as thick has the Dansco and when you slide it I worry that the coin isn't seated down in the slot enough for the slide to go across the coin without hitting it. I think it is a matter of perception more than anything. I thought that I would try it out on a set of clad coins like the Ike's before I used them on something like a nice BU set of Peace Dollars.
I just got the Intercept Shield US Type Set album, and it's nice. Comes with the slipcase too. I went that route because the Dansco 7070 is apparently much harder to purchase than any coin you'd ever put in it. I couldn't find one anywhere.
The only issue with the Intercept albums is that they are made in China. Dansco albums are made here in the States, which is nice.
Gem BU Nickels from 1938 to present is far beyond $30 in value I think. I spent $20 or so on one nickel for my set.
I'm happy with my Dansco for my Jefferson Nickel set. If you want to preserve your coins, no matter how much they cost or their value, buy the best for them, especially those you are keeping forever. I'd imagine, sets like these get sold as a set if you do ever sell them, the Dansco Album will only increase the value of the entire set.
Ugg....and I really like the idea of the Intercept Shield folders, but I like being made in the USA better. I, however, dislike the poor QC with dust and shipping I've read about and prefer a high quality folder like that NOT to tone my coins.
I am STRONGLY considering an Intercept album for my Lincolns and Mercuries because the Whitmans have caused a lot of them to tone- A lot of my RD wheaties are now RB , and my 43 Steelie's now have corroded in place, again.
The album has four pages in it for all of the UNC's and proofs. The last page does have four blank spots. I will say that the Intercept Shield and Dansco have a different feel about them. I've read and heard about how good they are but when I got one I was disappointed that the over all quality of construction appeared to be less than the Dansco. It does come with the slip cover and my hope is that the protection qualities out weigh the cons. It is made in China, , but I thought I would give one a try as I've heard so much good about them. The slots do not have the cardboard debris like the Dansco's which can cause a speck on the coin over time if not removed prior to placing the coin in the album.
Hope this helps.
