I put an extra page in my Lincoln memorial Cents dansco today for the satin finish coins. It had me thinking about the new cents for 2010 and onward. I have heard no plans that Dansco will be issuing a new album and since these are not technically memorial cents should I continue placing them in my 8102 since it goes to 2013 anyway. Thoughts?
P.S. What is the correct term for the new cents? Shield Cents?
Well.......it isn't a Wheat, it isn't a Memorial.....this will most certainly be considered a "new" issuance probably called "The new Cent with the Shield design".......or........I hate to say it......but......."Shield Cent" ! (I don't wanna say it 100 times !....) It will/should be treated just like the change to Memorials. It will be a "continuance" of the Lincoln Cent, only with a new design.
I would pay good money for a Dansco page that has 2008 P/D/S plus ALL 2009 designs annotated:
2009 (zinc) Formative
2009 (copper) Formative
2009 D (zinc) Formative
2009 D (copper) Formative
2009 S Formative
Obviously the last one being proof only. Are the product developers Dansco dense? If they made an extra page like that it would fly off the shelf! How many people own a Dansco 8100 and how many of them do you think would buy one?
Sure, some people might not want proof only S mint, some might not want the 95% copper. But it's not like it would be costly to run different combinations. This is a no brainer.
