WTB: Dansco Foreign Albums and UN FAO Albums

I'm a massive fan of Dansco albums and their history. My personal goal is to collect one of every album that Dansco has ever produced. Here is my current collection!

Below are some specific albums I am trying to collect but I am open to any rare albums you have!

    I got one of these the other day- I can't tell if it is on the shelf with your Continental on the far left - a one page half dollar type set

    Hey @davewesen ! I am happy to report that I already have that one :)

    This is freaking awesome!

    There are a LOT of fans of that Japan album.
    Dansco never made a Korea album, though, right?

    I made "frankenstein" South Korean albums with blank Dansco products, hot foil stamping (on the front covers) and acrylic paint on the spines as well as labeling the pages myself with clear sticky labels:

    Nice collection @mlov43 ! Love the fact that you even included a description behind the cover!

    I have never seen Dansco ever create a Korean album.

    My only suggestion for your album is to use a clear label maker for your pages. Similiar to how I used them for my American Women Quarters custom album: https://imgur.com/a/7iTMjv3

    I recommend the DYMO LetraTag 100H https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002Q9MCG8

    These are the clear labels I use https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08PBDRN7

    Wow, thank you! However, your links are dead over there at Amazon.

    I think my labels look about the same as yours. None of these labels are "clear," actually.
    I will look into this further, thanks to your suggestion!

    Have you considered writing an article on the history of Dansco binders? I think that would be a very nice addition to the current literature. These binders have been a part of collecting for 60 years now, at least here in North America. COINage Magazine might be interested in such an article...

    Here are some more links to my album pages:

    Cheers!

    @mlov43 I have fixed the links! I highly recommend the Letratag and the tape I use. They've worked great :)

    I actually reached out to David Lange last year to see if he was planning on researching Dansco's history. I was able to share some pictures of my collection with him. Sadly he passed before he had a chance. I may pick up the torch one day. I know a lot about the company and its history. But for now I'll focus on building up the album collection

    You could reach out to Randy at Chief Coins & Supply in Oshkosh, WI. They have a wide variety of U.S. and Darkside folders, albums, etc, in new & used conditions/prices. Good luck!

    I have an Israel 1948-1955 album. There is no album # on it - produced in 1965. I will post pictures when I get a chance. Sorry I am not selling it at this time as I am using it. I kind of remember a Palestine albumhttps://worthpoint.com/worthopedia/complete-set-59-palestine-coins-1802215017
    I have two Mexican albums also and the Japan album. All these albums are in use at this time.
    And here is one that goes from 1948- 1957 #7601. Mine only goes to 1955.
    And still another is Israel type album #7600.

    By the way-none of your links work.
