In his Fall 2019 Coin Board News Dave Lange published images of a very scarce pair of Colonial Coin & Stamp Company publisher-bound coin albums. At my request he
shared those images with us. Thank you! -Editor
The past quarter was relatively quiet in comparison to the first half of 2019. The usual line-up of common Whitman and Oberwise boards was presented, but most of these
offerings were not particularly choice or valuable. One standout entry was a wonderful pair of Colonial Coin & Stamp Company publisher-bound albums comprising Volumes I and II.
It’s rare to find either album offered publicly, but this eBay seller had both for sale as a single lot. I spotted this opportunity just an hour or so after it was posted, and I
spent no more than two or three minutes before pulling the trigger. The Liberty Head Dime board was lacking, always a possibility with these loose leaf albums, but both volumes
were otherwise complete as issued. This pair of albums has since been placed with a happy customer.
