    Very cool. Is that really a Dansco album? The color and font makes me think Whitman. I wonder how many of those albums they sold.

    I love this, but the photos would be much easier to look at if they were rotated the way they would be when you open up the book and look at it.

    Awesome!! I went back and forth with putting a set like this together. I saw an empty album like your Dansco for sale, it wasn’t Dansco though, maybe a custom job or a foreign company. I have maybe a dozen raw coins that would fit, maybe someday! Your set is great, and makes me want to take my plans off the back burner!

    How do you do that on here? No matter how I take the pics, they always come out sideways!

    It is a Dansco, but I think that they were making them as part of a contract for a different company (Nielson).

    My auctioneer boss has this problem as well when posting images to his side of the auctions (mine are always right side up.) I still have it from time to time (my stupid iPhone sometimes can't decide what orientation it's on.)

    I had it occasionally until I figured out I should (by default) open up the images in a basic photo editor (for Mac it's Preview) - rotate them properly, crop them just a bit, and re-save the file.

    I edit and rotate the pictures on my iPhone 8 first, then upload to CT. Works right every time. Not sure if you are using an iPhone or camera.

    BTW, I really like your set!

    I think I paid $50, including shipping. There's a newer version that they came out with in a limited printing as well, but this is the original Dansco from a few decades back.

    About a year; took a hiatus a few months ago because of the cost of the silver coins.

    I've always thought the Palestine set was cool, and yours looks quite nice. I've thought about putting one together, but haven't yet.

    Just be prepared to part with some ridiculous sums, especially for the 20 mils and 100 mils coins.

    What kind of sums are we talking about? Are the coins really hard to find and thus expensive, or are they one of the popular coins that are available but expensive because they are popular?

    In the case of the 20 mils coins, they cost many multiples of what you would pay for base metal coinage from other countries from the same period.

    Well, I paid $300 for this Cu-Ni from 1924. The right balance of rarity/quality/value doesn't scare me.

    How common/available are the Palestinian coins in UNC, especially high grade? Most of what I'm seeing on ebay looks to be lower grade or problem coins.
