A bit of a milestone for me as I have finally completed my Dansco Washington quarter (with proofs) albums. All 6 albums 32 pages of quarters. It includes ALL proofs minted from '36 to '21

Should I post up all 32 pages? Probably not.

I'll post up a few random pages from them.







Big for me.

After reading the title and before opening this post, I was saying to myself....This might be Dearborns...Yep...Congrats, always a nice feeling when the album is full...

Instead of posting a pix of each page...how about just the obverse and reverse of each coin.......I'll check back in on month or two...

Edited: Wondering on how much do you think the album weighs?

huh, Interesting thought.. I have all 6 quarter albums complete so 32 pages, OR all quarters individually both obv and rev, I looked that the properties of the directory holding all the quarter images and it comes to about 850 images. It would take me a week of Sundays to post them all..

I still have the first album to go back and photo graph, so it would probably put the count over 900 easily..

I think I would get booted if I did that.. lol

Thanks,
It took some time to do it. But now that it is done, It's on to my Kennedy halves. I just need the expensive 2010 to present proofs to finish that..

WTG!

Was just looking at the 2 albums I have started...need 14 more to complete them...no proofs...1932-1964.
I have to get my tail in gear.
May I ask...why is your 35-D quarter turned?

Congratulations - amazing!

I like that Dansco used that funky looking "2" for the "Q" in "Quarters". Takes me back to cursive class in 4th Grade when nobody could remember how to make a cursive capital Q, G or Z

Because that hole on all the pages was cut a bit too large and the quarters don't fit tight in that place. I'm looking for something to fill the gap but so far nothing works..

I was thinking of using black thread, but I need to be sure it is pure and clean so it will not damage the coins..
