My first DANSCO album (side project)
3 3

34 posts in this topic

I’ve heard the Dansco’s are hard to find right now. You’ll have a lot of fun with it. I have a Jefferson one completed through I think 2008. I need to look. I’ve been meaning to add a page or get another one and haven’t. I bought mine probably 75% complete when I got it, and finished it out. Mine are MS but not all 65/66 by any means and maybe one or two with FS. I have a feeling your album will be much nicer! But those are very nice albums. And the dust cover is nice as well.

They are not so easy to find and some sellers want a ton of money for them. Found this one on ebay. There were only 3 that I saw on there total for this particular album. This one is brand new. Had to get the dust jacket from a different seller. This one goes from 1938 to 2011 with proofs. (6 pages) it’s certainly a beefy album compared to my cheap Harris folders I have for my change find collection. I wanted this to be a nice all MS album. Its a very nice presentation. I really like it.

Very nice.  It should give you hours of enjoyment.

Took me a minute to figure out how to get the plastic slides out. :facepalm:

Dansco makes a first rate product and your beautiful mint state coins will look really nice in that album.

Thanks. It is top quality for sure. It’s fun to look for coins that I’m not worried about finding full steps or paying an arm and a leg for the coins. May take a while to finish but I’m in no hurry.

I know "LOL" is used often, but I really did laugh out loud when I saw that. :signfunny:

I even took one of the pages out and looked it over trying to figure it out. Should come with instructions for this meathead (shrug).

I've always liked danscos. They just look classier on the bookshelf.

That they do. Wow you have quite a set! Very nice! After seeing how nice this one is I would like to get a few more.

I’m working on opening a small online store and have started the process to become a dealer for Dansco and other supplies. I figure as much time as I spend on coins and supplies these days might as well try to have it support itself in a small way. Once I get it worked out maybe I’ll have what you need next time. It’s definitely a work in progress getting set up with various vendors and an online site.

That would be cool. Hope you can get it up and running. Not sure what the deal is with these and being so hard to come by. The actual Dansco website is basically wiped out and has nothing. Hope you can get some stock for your store. Good luck my friend.

Thanks TJ. There are a few toners in there. I’m always game to see some Jeffs.

It ends 1990.  I just have some random stuff in the back, just to fill some holes.

Very nice TJ. You are a lot farther along than me for sure. That 54P looks like a doozie of a toner.

Thanks Lem!   The toning has actually progressed in this album over the years.  Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing, in the long run?  I like the way they look at the moment.

If they all ended up looking like that 54, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings any. Guess it all depends on what you like.

Hold on a minute. Let me get a better picture of that 54.

I got my first DANSCO album today for a little side project I’m working on. I have my regular circulation albums/folders that I have had for years, but I thought I would try to put a “nicer” album together. I didn’t realize just how nice these really are. I am impressed to say the least. I have several MS65/66 nickels that I used for research purposes and decided to crack them out and start this album. I have been buying other cheap slabbed nickels here and there to crack out and fill this thing up. The good thing is that I can get any kind of slab I want (ANACS/PCGS/ICG) since it is getting taken out anyway. I figure a nice 65/66 coin would make a good album coin and I can get them fairly cheap. I’ll get raw coins too if I can find some good pieces. Like I said, a fun little side project.

You have embarked on a great project.

@Lem E-

Here's the 54. Not much better I'm afraid.

I’ll bet in the right light it’s a looker. Thanks for posting it.

Yeah, the color of the page looks “off” to me. With that color corrected, the nickel might be insanely gorgeous.

Just couldn't match both the way the coin looks in-hand and the color of the page.

That is one of the things that draws me to nickels. They can take on so many different looks.
