One thing I see about the Whitmans are that there are spaces for proof coins, which I never gave thought to collecting so now I have to ponder some more...haha

Do note that there are two versions of the Dansco. One that includes the proof only issues, one that does not.

Proof only means that the coin was only issued in proof for that mint, typically the 1968 and later San Francisco coins.

Sadly, for the years that Philadelphia (1964 and earlier) and San Francisco (1968 to 1975 cents, 1968 to 1970 nickels) issued both proof and business strikes there is only one hole so you have to choose which to put in it.

Another difference... unless I am mistaken, Whitman does not produce slip cases for their albums.

Also, note that Dansco is made in the USA and Whitman is made in China. Also, Whitman is actually Harris which bought out Whitman but kept the name. One thing that always irritates me about Dansco is the empty places at the end of the Album. Pages are made the same regardless of how many coins are needed. No other manufacturer of Albums does that. Possibly a good or bad thing about Whitman Albums is so many have the cover large enough to add many additional pages. For example I can put two complete sets of Mercury dimes in one Album. As many as 10 Pages in a Lincoln Cent Album. Most Dansco Albums have the cover only big enough for what is needed page wise.

Well correct me if I am wrong Whitman albums appear to not have a State Quarter Album that has spaces for P, D & S? I am only finding date set or P&D, but yet it seems to be the only coin set left out, which to my OCD mind makes no sense...haha

Can someone confirm that I am correct or incorrect and if incorrect where would I be able to purchase the album?

You know what, it looks like you're right, KK. I never noticed that until now -- I use a Whitman Statehood album for P&D finds from circulation and Danscos for PDSS from mint sets.

Funny that they do have an album for 2009 - Date with the page labeled for PDS of the territory quarters.

I guess you could do a generic Whitman "Coin Album" binder with blank quarter pages and label them yourself.

I also believe the Presidential dollar does the same thing, and from what I am to understand the companies thoughts are have 2 albums a P&D and put the proofs in a date set album. I also noticed they do not make modern albums for anything older than Barber aged coins as well. So I guess each company has their respective pros and cons.
