Homemade Album for Nickel Three Cents

This is the second book I have completed. Nickel Three Cents are usually paired with Two Cent pieces or another odd type, so this should be the first time they have received their own dedicated album. I included slots for Proof issues too.

A slight change from the Seated Dimes Album I posted recently is the addition of cut slots on the right hand side of each page, making it easier to pull out the slides.

And a group shot with the Seated Dimes album and the next book.

These are fun to make. I want to get into making more specialized albums, world albums, or something neat like a Hawaii/Alaska set.

    Those are great!

    Would it be possible to make an album that the coins were slabbed instead of raw? I like the 3C CN series and seated dimes, but would want the coins slabbed since there are so many expensive issues.

    @The_Dinosaur_Man... Those are very nice... I would think there is a market for these. Cheers, RickO

    I can see some people asking for "set" requests.

    Very nice, and quite a match to the old Library of Coins albums. The set fit on two of the old Wayte Raymond pages (sorry about the blurry photo)

    Albums, albums, COIN Albums, I love to fill coin albums! I am a coin album nut. I never saw a coin album that I didn't like. Love them. You could go into a custom coin album business. If I see an album that I don't already have, I buy it and try to fill it. Any country, any century, any denomination. All my albums are in safe deposit boxes in banks. Albums, albums, I love coins Albums!! <3:)

    Could you make a youtube video on how to make these?

    Thank you everyone for the responses! I realize I'm a little late getting back here.

    @Russell12 - I'm still finalizing the pages for the Lincoln album, really just waiting to get mintage figures for the 2019, 2020, and 2021 issues. I wrote to the mint and am hoping they get back to me. The album itself is six pages, Page 1 for the Matte Proofs, Page 2 for Wheat Cent proofs, and Page 3 onwards for Memorial, 2009, and Shield proofs.

    @rec78 - I'd love to do a youtube video but don't really have the time to make any. I also run a website for video games that I would record videos for whenever I had the free time to do so, and I haven't been able to upload for that in almost a year.
