Homemade Albums for Proof Lincoln Cents and Gold
These are some other books I have worked on lately. This little gig is starting to pick up, and I appreciate those of you that have inquired and placed orders!
First up is the book for Proof Lincoln Cents. When I started collecting, I was fascinated by "S" mint Lincolns and was intrigued by the discrepancy in the Whitman folders ending with 1974-S and the Red Book continuing on beyond that. Bought my first proofs, in hindsight they were lousy examples but I wanted them for that "S" mintmark, and assembled a set from 1959 to 2008. Sold off that set before going to college and only started it up again in the last couple of years, this time expanding the set to include the Wheat proofs and the Shield proofs. And then I made up the book.
I don't really expect to find the Matte proofs in raw form, but the other coins I'll give my best to find.
Also in the works lately are some more gold books. I'll post this one photo for now...
Since designing it, one person has bought and filled the Indian $2.50 book.
