Old cent holders

I have these old cent holders and was wanting to know who made them and they look like they fit in some kind of binder. Does anyone recognize them?


Have a good day, Gary

    This doesn't help but I used to have them as a kid 50 years ago and have since thrown them out. It was too hard getting the coins in and out without getting prints on them or potentially damaging them. Some of the plastic rings would pop out of the holders as well. Yes, they were in a hard plastic cover binder.

    I had one but tossed it. It had a bulky plastic case and foam that was disintegrating.

    Gotta love the spots for 1965-D and 1966-D. Clearly made in 1964 or earlier.

    Nice catch 👍

    No idea, never seen one before but I like it. Is that a hinge I see where it opens and closes?

    I have a few. Ticker and Treasures from Chicago is who made them. Here’s some auction pics from when I got mine

    Oh, now I see how it works from @Mr_Spud pics. Interesting.

    I think this is a Ticker and Treasure holder. They were heavily advertised in the numismatic magazines in the 1960s. I never bought any of them because I used either the Whitman albums or the Library of Coins series, which were better.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Just tossed mine last week. Tired of keeping them for 50 years and not using.... Don't think I ever like them anyway!
