Very nice!! I also have the entire ASE Proof line.. - I'm in the process of getting all of them graded at PCGS..(I'm guessing it will take a while to complete that task..)


Most of the proofs I have aren't graded. The graded coins I have are the higher profile coins in my collection. Basically the purpose is to make them easier to view, increase their liquidity, and to tell my family to pay special attention to the graded ones if anything happens to me and they want to liquidate (i.e. don't assume they're worth just $50). I have on my to-do list to put stickers on the more valuable coins listing their approx. value so the family knows what they're worth and not get shorted.

As already mentioned, Dansco isn't an option for you, but you should be able to use the ENCAP 40/41 page from Lighthouse to do the trick.


I'll certainly look at those. Thanks!

CAPS is also an option but you would still have to transfer the coins from their OGP capsules to AirTites. I have done that many times without issue. When doing so I wear a cotton glove on one hand just to be safe.

Personally I have all proofs and uncric from 1999-date. Need to fill in a number of holes for proofs prior to 1999.


Not against the idea of doing a transfer to Airtites, just don't want to leave them out in the open exposed like normal Dansco folders where you have to pop them manually into the folder page without being in the capsule.

Great Topic....


Seeing that the WAY in which We store/ View Our collections is Eye opening, It's as Unique as the Collector's themselves.

I Too collect the ASE series, Unc's, Proofs, RP'S, ERP'S, Etc. I keep the sets and other coins in the Original Packaging and ALSO started a DANSCO and have not upgraded it for awhile. Seeing the coins in their OGP, Sweet, for Me.

Grading Valuable coins is a Smart, Safe way to keep KEYS. I also have some KEYS NOT slabbed, The Majority of that series, NOT slabbed. The Only coin I had graded was the 1970-S Small-Date Lincoln Cent and the 1889-CC Morgan silver dollar. Just a few slabs. I believe that WEAR is placed upon a stored coin, Especially the ones I keep in a FOLDER, Those Clangs are NOT preferred....... JMO!!!!

Great idea! I sort of do that but it's all in a spreadsheet at this point. I'm (hopefully) many years away from having to worry about it but life is life and anything can happen and happen in a hurry. Rather than individually label everything I may put together a simplified spreadsheet or document with the "big ticket" items with photos to help them identify and explanation of how best to liquidate everything if needed.

Agreed!

That's why I went with CAPS in the first place. I'd be OK with sticking bullion ASEs in a Dansco but not the proofs, UNCs, RPs, ERPs, etc. But as morgansdad said above, each collector has their own style and there is no wrong way.

For transferring to a display album w/o having to touch the coins (i,e., without having to remove them from their Mint capsules), nothing beats the Lighthouse pages!

I'm certainly of the younger demographic on this forum. That said, my father passed at the age of 60 two years ago from cancer in the span of 8 months after being diagnosed (his death was sudden since he was responding well originally to treatment) so that hit home a bit knowing "you never know when it's your time". He had a decent collection of firearms, but didn't keep an inventory of their value. Fortunately, he passed a decent bit of knowledge to the family, so we knew which were the good ones and which were the junk he liked to accumulate to eventually sell to those "buy-backs" for extra money. The good stuff is staying with mom.

Because of that, I have every bit of confidence the family would know to pay attention to the gold and graded items, but would like to mark the big ticket ones so they know not to sell those for cheap at a flea market in case something happens suddenly.

Not familiar with that one. I guess I'll have to research it out a bit

Looks interesting and is a solid option. Some observations

On the plus side:
o Zero touching of the actual coin
o You get 20 ASEs/page vs 16/page vs CAPS pages.
o Pages fit in Lighthouse Grande albums, which are solid and affordable albums with slipcases. (I happen to use these for my world paper money collection as well and love them.)

On the downside (I use that term loosely)
o There are no labels and doesn't look like much room for making your own. I'm sure there are plenty of ways to address that.
o I don't know but I'm assuming the pages are also thicker to accommodate the thickness of slabs/OGP.

Looking at the lighthouse web site and these pages, It looks like they pages are thick enough and possibly rigid to boot.

I'm looking at these for my ASE slabbed proofs (of which Lighthouse has pages for the slabs as well)
