These Ike dollar may become hot again, I noticed jumps in prices for the past year of two on eBay, maybe it is because silver prices?

Q: Why didn't they make a 75 Ike?

They kind of did.
In 1975 they minted the type 1 Bicentennial coins, in 1976 they minted the type 2 coins. (I think)

Well, I had alot of the coins here already - mostly the business strikes in mint packaged cello wraps. The P and d from 73 to 78. and all of the 1976's. That accounts for about 17 coins I already had in boxes with no place to show them off. I never liked the Whitman albums much and even though I had almost all my circulated coins (cents, nickels, and dimes I kept in Whitman folders only because that was the only one I could get back in the '70's I just stuck with it because I like consistency and need order. Now comes the CCF and I discover the Dansco brand. Everybody is talking about the 7070 type coin album which I get al start to fill from my collection I manage to fill 31 holes right off the bat, then I start to look at the prices of the other coins and wonder what I just got myself into.
I see the popularity of the Eisenhower coins.
So I jump tracks and get the 8176 Ike album, and break out my Ikes and get them in the album, Seeing that I'm already halfway done, I just "go for it" and start a buying spree on Clad and Silver proofs and BU coins.

I had the money for these as the price was way more manageable. the most expensive one was only $65.00. On average the rest was about $30.00. If it weren't for the Covid pandemic I probably would not have done this. The lock down and all, I managed to not spend any money on anything until now. After all I live alone (me and my 2 German Sheppard dogs), I have no family to look after and buy things for so my money just piles up.

The rest was just shopping for the coins I thought looked good at a decent price and ordered away. The quickness of the sellers and the USPS did the rest. Nice fast shipping.

Now that I accomplished one album, it will be far easier to finish more.

Nice set! Guess it would take a year for me to complete the Ikes set :)
You were hunting raw coins only or there were also some slabs cracked to fil the holes in the album?

Same reason not 1975 Quarters or Half dollars. The Bicentennial issues.

Thanks, It's my very first completed Album. I have lots of completed Whitman Folders - but that will change to Dansco So I can display them in my library. (when I build one)
