I don't own the album yet buy I've been buying some of the coins. Looking at the album and the slots it has here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dansco-8176...em45ff8a9553

I just bought the 1971 s and 1972 s clad proof ikes. Why is there no slot for these? Just for the silver proof but not regular proof... anyone know why?

Is it because these ikes I bought are silver? I just checked here: http://www.coincommunity.com/us_dol...senhower.asp and it seems like it.

There were no clad proof dollars in 1971 and 1972. If you do get 1971-S and 1972-S proofs, they are silver.

Keep in mind, they are silver clad (Cladding: 80% silver 20% other, Core: 79% copper,21% Silver), so there is still a "copper" core in the middle like other Cu-Ni clad coins. However, since that core is not pure copper, it looks grey.

Cool, thanks jbuck. I knew you were going to be the first to respond. lol.

Was confused at first but then I kind of realized when I looked up the coin facts here on CCF. Gotta love that section. Just wanted a definite answer though. Thanks!

Can someone tell me if it generally is hard to insert the Ikes into a Dansco's hole? I bought one of theWizard supply 5.00 albums for my Ikes and found it was a little difficult to insert some of them. Are name brand albums also made this way? Is it just so the coins do not rotate/slip?

It seems to vary. For some of my Danscos the holes are pretty tight, others (like half dollars) they fall in and rotate around. On the ones that are too tight, you can fix it by boring out the hole with a non-valuable coin first, e.g. I use a dime from pocket change to bore out the holes in my Mercury dime album.

I should add - the 8176 is about right in terms of snugness, maybe just a bit on the loose side. The bigger issue is that Ikes are very thick coins, so getting them in the slot far enough to avoid getting rubbed by the slides is the main issue.

I could not agree more

I agree, like when I put my peace and Morgan dollars in my 7070, I had to perform surgery to snug it in there without having the slides scrape the coins.

That's why I'll probably do a different kind of setup when I start on the "7070" I'm thinking about working on.
I just don't like albums. Don't trust them. If your finger slips when pushing the coin in, it could be considered wear and a ruined coin. Same for the slides.
I guess I'll do individual airtight holders/slabs. Not very presentable, but having and protecting is the key, I suppose.

murrellington, Also remember that there are the 1971-s and 1972-s 40% silver uncirculated (Blue Ikes) and the same years in 40% silver proof (brown Ikes). All contain silver as jbuck mentioned. There are holes for all of these in the 8176 as you probably saw in the link you posted.

In my 8176 the coins all fit in very snug. I typically press the coin far into the hole, making sure that the slide does not come close to the coin when it is put in. I rarely remove the rear slides, as they are much closer to the coin I had to push in. I am just looking for a 1972 T2 to finish off this set.. I added the additional 1972 types to the album that were not labeled.

coinsearcher83, Check out the Coin World Premier Coin Holders. I have been using them for a while now and they match up with current PCGS slabs very well. This gives your collection a nice even looks if you have PCGS and raw coins to house. Nice protection and the ability to add a label. Good customer service too from Amos.

They needed some coaxing, but nothing extraordinary (I did not have to "size" the holes). My album was purchased in 1984, so your experience will vary.
