I know I'm a newbie but if you're interested for years (since 1986 to be exact) I've been using an Eagle US Dollar Commen Coin album with the pages which hold 20 2 x 2 slots to store my Proof ASE's. This must be similar to TheNickelGuy's setup.

This allows me to see 20 Proof ASE's at one glance (obviously) and I don't ever take them out of their Mint supplied plastic holders.

Since there are six pages in the album, I store other Mint encapsulated coins, and some SBA's in after market capsules, etc in the same album. The edge of the binder has a place for a identifying card, so I can label it however I want.

Still can't get over your Lucite holder for Franklin halves, guess now I'll have to learn how to tap and countersink in Lucite.

Thanks for the info wvparadox. I think these may be the ones jdfindring once posted pics of what he used for his ASEs. He once posted a pic of them:

I think they work well, but admit I do not like the look of the "strap" that holds the capsule in. In fact it was the Eagle albums that got me to thinking about trying to see if anyone made pages with the bottom of the capsules already built in (all one would need do is insert the coin and snap the top on).

Tapping is easy and done by hand. Countersinking is easy with a drill press (can be done carefully by hand). I suggest you go to a Mom and Pop hardware store, give then an idea of what you want to do, and ask their help. The fun part is planning and drawing the layout. Also make sure the spade drill bit you use is sharp.

I have been thinking of making more of these cases for other sets. I already did one for Canadian George V nickels - but it was a rush job so I am not happy with it. But I had some scrap plexiglass laying around so decided to do it.
