Been bored self-isolating, so I figured out how I'm going to organize and identify my civil war token collection just started. I think I'll organize by theme and Fuld number. Any thoughts would be appreciated. These out of print Whitman folders only have 120 holes and no identifications. I took a photo of a page and added a brief description, fuld no, and rarity via computer. I then added it to the album.

In addition to collecting coins and tokens for many years, I've collected and refinished antiques; particularly so, small chests with drawers and lift-out trays to accommodate my collections. I fitted dividers and relined chests to suit my needs.

My NY CWT store card collection has resided in a remodeled walnut silverware chest for a good many years. The top, lift-out tray contains a token from each of the 25 NY State towns. Below that is contained a variety of other NY CWT's, along with NY merchant scrip-mates that pair with assorted tokens. Many NY merchants who then issued tokens also issued scrip or paper money.

Experience has shown me that wooden containers help preserve tokens and coins. I enjoy the freedom to group tokens as I see fit. They can then easily be lifted out, shared and studied. While most of my pieces are holdered, I have some collections/groupings of lower grade pieces that aren't.

Looks good. I have mine in 2x2 flips, and pages to hold those in a 3-ring binder.
