Coin Albums and Cases

Coins | user_20074

I bought a Lincoln Cent set in the late 60's and it was in a Ticker and Treasure hard plastic coin album with individual capsules for each coin (see attachment). Does anyone know what the album is worth? Thanks.

Updates

| CopperCollector

Lately I have been very busy so I thought I will give.you a quick update on what I have been doing. I recently just started a 7070 Dansco and am about halfway done ( all the easy dates are pretty much filled). I won a grab bag from the YN auction by the way thanks to the ANA for hosting it. My favorite coin was an 1810 capped bust large cent. But it also came with a 2019 cent and a planchet which was pretty cool. Finally anyone who wants to start a type set the cancel 7070 is an awesome album to own. I am working on a type set series of blog posts and will start posting more frequently again. Once again I want to say thanks to the ANA for the outstanding auction.

November Numismatist

Coins | Haney

I know not my usual October blog, but thought I would share the quarter that inspired the article I wrote that appears in the November Numismatist. I know not the beauty that Caleb found to use in the graphics, but it is the one I bought at Reliable Coins. I guess too I need to update my bio as in addition to my interest in error coins of 1968 and 681 military payment certificates I have been working on completing a set of the classic commemorative coins. Which this piece and the Lafayette dollar are outliers in the set if you exclude the gold pieces. One of my favorite things about numismatics is the rabbit holes you can find while collecting. Sometimes they are just imagined like trying to guess how far a particular piece has traveled to arrive in your collection both in time and distance. This one though was a trip through history trying to discover if what I had read was fact and be reminded of somethings that I had once forgotten. There was a second one page article I developed for the TNA too during my trip down the Isabella rabbit hole. I have included a link below to the TNA site and you will find my article on page 17 of the December 2020 issue.http://www.tna.org/archive_news.htmEnjoyp.s. I want to credit Caleb the editor for the Numismatist first for providing another resource for my article and putting it together pulling additional graphics that I did not have.

Class VI Doubled Die

Coins | user_22121

Class VI doubled dies are truly rare. The doubling is not easily identifiable since the doubling is extra thickness on the coin with noticeable doubling lines. The coin is the class of DDO discovered on a 2019 Lincoln cent I have discovered and classified as NGC MS66 DDO.

Class V Doubled Die

| user_22121

Class V doubled die shows doubling to the right or the left around the coin with a widespread, into a medium spread, and finally a minor spread. For example, Liberty will have widespread doubling above the lettering, the Motto will have a medium spread to the right of the lettering , and the date will have a minor spread below the numbers.
