DAVID LANGE'S COIN FOLDER, ALBUM AND BOARD REFERENCE COLLECTION

David Lange wrote a great book on Coin Collecting Boards of the 1930s and 1940s; now he's at work on a book about their successor, coin folders. -Editor

I was amused by the story of coin folders housing a collection of ecstasy pills. I have many thousands of coin folders, albums and boards in my reference collection. While a few still hold coins or medals, yet not a single one is being used to store drugs. Some, however, seem to be giving refuge to mildew, if the smell of my hobby room is any indication. Despite my continual efforts to clean the contents and air out the room itself, it continues to have a mild funk all its own, much to my wife's distress.

I'm attaching a couple photos taken a few years ago when the room was still quite orderly and neat. At that time I was still simply collecting coin holders for my own amusement. Now, with a book on the subject of coin albums underway, I've had to move everything around repeatedly for cataloging purposes, and it's far less appealing as a display area.
