I put my name on the list for a few Dansco albums and in over 4 months I was only able to get 1 the 1959 to 2014 LMC/LSC one.

Does anyone have the inside scoop on when Dansco will start producing albums again? I reached out to them and it was first August, now its October September. I was about to give up and then the LMC album just appeared, so should I wait or should I get a Whitman or Littleton?

If the Dansco 7070 is any indicator http://goccf.com/t/142556&whichpage...ANSCO%2C7070

You may want to check with local dealers and visit any nearby coin shows if not already doing so.

They're (or were at some point) a printing company, the albums are a small part of business and not a priority. They get to them kind of whenever, but there's tons of them out there. Check eBay or post a want list or do both and most of them are fairly easy to acquire especially slightly used.

I found a few but not the Dansco 1909 to 1958 LWC album. Thats the one I've been looking for, I checked a few LCS and none have it.

Perhaps someone reading your post will have a lead. I know how frustrating it can be when the album you want is harder to find than the coins themselves.

You might want to EM COOP. He might help.

You guys are like magic fairies, 11 minutes ago (when, right after I posted the top post), I get an email that the album is in stock at one of the LCS I asked to be notified when it comes in...

I tried calling and got a voicemail. They are supposed to be moving to Sumas, Washington and will reopen October 15. I was told at the Dansco store that sometimes shipments mysteriously appear and that they are supposed to start new shipments in September/October. So now October 15 seems to be the new date.

Bummer. Scratch that off my list then.


Honestly don't know what's going on. Yesterday I can't find the 1909 - 1958 album anywhere and Dansco's phone number is "unavailable". Created a post and "magically" one of the LCS I had to notify me when the album is available emails me...

Called again and now there is a voicemail stating they are moving and will reopen on 10/15.

Me thinks someone from Dansco was on here.. but I have no proof....

queue Twilight zone......

I'm surprised the phone number and address isn't Beijing!

They are (relatively) newly registered as a Washington company (May 2019)

Their new business address is a former IGA Grocery store (maps.google.com for 311 Cherry St, Sumas WA) which is three blocks from the Canadian border.

This is Dansco, not Whitman.

To me it looks like they were bought out (or brought in a new partner) and moved to Washington.
