I've been using these coin books for most of my life. In that time, they have hardly changed at all. The coins are hard to push into the holes, but it's supposed to be this way. Put the book on a clean hard surface, like a table or counter top, and PUSH hard. I use a lighter to push them in once I've got them in as far as they'll go with my hand. They are designed this way to keep them from falling out. The backside of the slot is only covered by a thin piece of paper that makes up the book's cover. This isn't an issue if you put the coins in correctly. If you do it incorrectly, you run the risk of pushing through the paper backing of the slot. I've used these books for years, and have had dozens of them, and never had a problem.One thing to keep in mind: once the coin is in, you should leave it there. If you put in a coin, and take it out, it won't hold another coin nearly as well. If you get one that might not be a permanent, and think you'll replace it down the road, don't put it in just yet. Other than that, these books are a great value. My family loves them, and it really does give us all something to do as a pastime.
I've been getting back into collecting coins lately and Whitman's folders are very nice to keep your collection in. This particular set is nice because they do have spots for all the different nickels that were part of the Westward Journey series. The coins fit good and have spots up to the year 2015 but the third page is empty with slots. You just have to write in the dates.
Can someone answer that question. Where does this nickel holder ends? It starts at 1996 and ends where 2000 or 2012 or what?
I bought the entire collection of these folders that is available at the moment. They all arrived within a day of each other, as expected. New users may think they seem small but they are a very compact and inexpensive way to keep your coins organized. A great tool for the beginner or the experienced coin collector. Be sure to lay the binder on a flat, hard surface like a desk or kitchen counter when entering your coins and you should have no problems.
We love the Whitman coin folders! They are a great way to store your coin collection. My 7- and 9-year-olds enjoy trying to complete an entire folder and they look forward to the new coins being released. It would be even better if offered several folders as a set to purchase together.When adding coins to the folder, just make sure the folder is on a hard surface and the coin is facing the direction you want since they are not easy to remove. This is good because the coins will not fall out of the folder, but makes it difficult to replace coins if you find one in better condition than the one you have already added.I recommend these folders.
Well put together and at a decent price. This is what I used and my grandfather used when he was a kid. Whitman has been around for a long time and they do a good job. The reason I only 4 stared was because after a couple of times of removing a coin it doesn't keep it tight. Great product.
Bought for the kids to get excited about collecting something. It worked out well. Every few months after saving all our lose change we make a night of it, after a while, finding a coin we need is a big deal.
Was mostly what I thought it would be. It is good quality, not best. works for what I wanted it for. came on time. didn't know it was both P and D but maybe I just missed the description. Some slots easy to put in, others not.
