DAVID LANGE'S COIN COLLECTING BOARD WEBSITE

Dave Lange rolled out a new web site this week:
www.coincollectingboards.com

He writes: "It's devoted to my collecting of vintage coin boards
and also offers my books for sale."  Here's how the home page
describes coin boards:

"What are coin boards?  Coin boards are 11" x 14" sheets of cardboard
with openings to hold a series of coins. The dates and mintages appear
beneath each opening, and a colorful backing paper holds the coins in
place. Coin boards were first produced in 1934 and they revolutionized
the hobby. Before that time, coin cabinets and albums were simply too
expensive to attract new converts. Priced at just 25 cents each, coin
boards made collecting a hobby for the whole family and led to the
folders so popular today."

To see some examples from Dave's collection, see coin board examples
