Whitman Lincoln Cents collection is a good quality folder for the new and old collectors alike. Each of its 3 pages has 30 slots for holding a total of 90 coins and for either displaying the back or some other special coins you may have. There are no labels but a space to do you own labeling is provided. Read the directions and inserting the coins is no problem. this would make a great "tooth fairy" album because it will hold what ever pennies you want to put in it. if you like to collect out of your pocket change, this is probably for you =)
At the time I am writing this there are two reviews up rating this with 1 star and stating the coins don't fit. I'm astonished by these reviews! I remember having these same folders when I was a kid in the late 60's and I'm happy to report they are just as fine a quality now as they were back then. I know this because I still happen to have two of them. Unfortunately they are now made in China when they used to be made in the U.S., but what isn't. Anyway, to address the claim that the holes are two small and you can't get the coins in ... this is utterly ridiculous. As always, like in the 60's, you simply insert the coin at an angle and then push the other side down. So easy a child can do it. I inserted 46 pennies last night, while in bed, watching TV, with my body twisted to the side accessing my nightstand, in about 10 minutes, taking my sweet time. That about sums it up, except to say, if you need a coin folder, Whitman has always done a real nice one.
The Lincoln plain folders do what they are designed to do. It allows me to organize my cents any way I choose. Coins are easy to put in and well made. Nice way to display my coins. I can also easily take out a coin and replace it with a better conditioned one if I want to. Good folder.
Nice that this was blank so we could label the slots where the other coin holder left off. The pennies are harder to insert though. With just a tap from a small hammer (after placing something soft over the coin) the coin fit fine in the slot.
I bought this for my nieces little boy because he loves to put coins in his piggy bank, so I thought he would get a kick out of putting his pennies in this coin folder! He just turned 3 and loved it!
Just like I remembered when I bought them new many years ago.One of the very few items that have kept their quality level.
These litttle folders are perfect if you are just starting collecting pennies. The coins are easy to snap out and replace as you get better looking coins for the same years. Good price also.
This is almost impossible to find in any store. I now do not need to find a certin date to a certin date. I can set it up the way I want! This is a very good buy.
