I have the Dansco 8100 Lincoln Cent Album. (including proof-only issues)

I also have a few PCGS slabbed specimens (keys and semi-keys) that are part of my set. I place a blank planchet in the coin's spot in the album just to fill the hole.

My question is this. Does Dansco or Has Dansco ever made an album the same size as their typical albums that has the ability to store slabbed coins? I'm looking for a uniform way to house my collection. I'd even be willing to switch from Dansco to something else. Have an album for all the commons and a second for your slabbed semi-key and key dates that are slabbed. Do I have any options or am I just an organized dreamer? Thanks in advance.

I don't believe or ever recall seeing anything Dansco specific for that. I'm not even sure Dansco is still in production.

There are other products out there.

Wow Jbuck. That's exactly what I'm looking for. Now we just need to get Dansco up and running at full capacity again.

Maybe you can get a bit creative?

I have a few dozen different Morgans. Acquiring a full date/mm set will be a long, long term project, if ever, for me. I have a couple of used Dansco Morgan volumes, but my small collection looks really rough in those—way too many holes! I don't have the mental toughness to stare into all of those impossible voids... But I do like the Dansco's better than three ring binders, so my solution was to do the following:

I acquired standard sized, PVC-free pages for 2x2's. I cut them down to 3 slots x 4 slots from the 4x5. I used one existing hole for the first post. I had to punch a second hole to get the right spacing for a Dansco. I also added a third hole in the middle, and cut a hole in the Dansco to catch a third post, just for added security with the dollars and the flimsier PVC-free pages.

I did not use my Morgan albums. Instead, I bought a larger, cheap, used Dansco from my LCS (I guess it was a not so popular layout for State Quarters), and modified it by adding the extra hole. I also had to take shears and shorten the cardboard flaps by about 1mm to give the pages more room to lay over. With slabs, the extra thickness might be a showstopper for that reason. I don't know how the larger pocket pages might fit, but there may be ways of working around that, too.

BTW: I store my coin albums flat, as I do my nicer hardback books—easier on the spines, without all that torque. I don't know how well my configuration would work for those who want to stand a book up.

I also made this mod with my 7070. I added one extra page, which allows me to have 12 more type coins of anything I please that will go into a 2x2. My poor man's appendix.

Thanks for the post, MOS0239. Might make me rethink the blue boxes.

Over time the pages start to sag, so I did the same back in the 1990s when I was having a difficult time finding original Dansco 2x2 pages.

For what it is worth, I eventually replaced those homemade pages a few years back with Dansco pages bought from Wizard.

Three ring binder pages as jbuck mentioned is what I use and coincidentally from the same place. They neatly house nine slabs to a page and come three to a pack.

There are no slabbed coins in my collection. Slabs do not suit my display and storage requirements.

Nevertheless,
I have seen 9 pocket slab album pages of the same size as regular coin albums. The albums that they go in would be perfectly sized to sit alongside normal coin albums on a bookshelf, and could be stored vertically, instead of flat, due to the stiffness of the pages.
