Maybe this has been pointed out before but I recently came across this seller of 12 sizes of cardboard flips. I bought a couple lots of "non-standard" sizes. I have no vested interest in the seller.

I used to buy all different sized flips... Now I'm pretty happy with always using the same size regardless of the coin... so I usually buy coins for 50 cent pieces and only buy bigger packs if there's a need.

Interesting. Those could probably come in handy with world coins and tokens if you prefer to avoid excess plastic around the coin.

Good to know @999F--thanks for posting this. For many medieval/ancient coins, the dramatic thickness means that we often need to upsize the window diameter in order to fit the coin.

I'm not sure if I see the added value of having for example a 29 mm where the standard is 30 mm. It's not like you have an ocean of space if your coin is 28.5 mm anyway... Or am I missing something here?

Those of 40 mm actually seem very interesting as they're slightly bigger than the 39.5 mm which is the biggest here. And I do have a few coins at exactly 40 mm...

Thanks. And I do like the idea of more sizes to fit the foreign coins.

I received my order and here are my observations.

Pros:

They are neatly packaged in lots of 50 pcs. (I ordered 4 sizes, 50 ea)
The card stock is excellent quality.
The card stock is thin which makes for easy stapling compared to thicker cards.
The cutting of the cards to shape is neat and smooth compared to some I've ordered elsewhere which look like they were die cut with perforations and torn apart.

Overall, a quality product. While 1.5 mm may not seem like much, as a collector of non-standard US coins, a touch of extra room is often needed, also as pointed out with thicker coins.



Cons:

Some might find the thin card less desirable when applying to thicker coins.
The holes match perfectly but one side is about 1/32" shorter than the other.
A little work is necessary as the fold sometimes is slightly crooked from one side to the other.

I love the 37 mm size. I need to order some 40 mm to see how they work.

Shipping time was quite fast, I ordered on a Saturday, they arrived on the next Thursday 2 days ahead of estimate.

I apologize for posting in the "wrong" category. I'm not as familiar with the categories as others might be.

Still trying to complete my Dansco 7000.

I too used to use different sizes for different coins. Now I only use about 3 different sizes for all coins.
