Dave Lange submitted these notes on a rare U.S. Type Coins folder. Thanks. -Editor
The passing of Sol Taylor was very sad news to me. We got to know each other while I was researching and writing The Complete Guide to
Lincoln Cents. This coin series was, of course, his very favorite, and he devoted most of his numismatic time and study to it. My book was
something of a rival to his, but we nonetheless worked together on many topics relating to Lincoln Cents.
Sol also knew of my passion for old coin boards, folders and albums. When it came time for him to begin downsizing his own collections he sent me
a U. S. type coin folder that he'd owned since it was new in 1943. Well worn and somewhat damaged, it's the least attractive of the several
examples I own, but I've cherished it for the memories it held for him and for my own memories of him. I'm attaching a couple of photos that
show this folder.
Produced only once during 1943, this oversize folder was later split into two parts and published in the small format typical of Whitman blue
folders to the present day. It's quite a rare item, and I've cataloged it for my upcoming book on Whitman folders and albums. An image is
attached of that book entry.
