Description

This is the first book to study the landmark coin album series and other coin holders produced by Beistle, Raymond & Meghrig. All offered a similar product line that today is known collectively as the National or “Raymond” coin album. Lange’s new book explains the history behind these various lines and identifies how they are similar and where they differ. A complete, detailed catalog is included which lists every known variety of each title. This promises to bring order to their collecting and trading, which until now has been mostly a matter of guesswork and erroneous claims.

Thoroughly researched and richly illustrated, the book includes 80 pages in full color. Portraits of the individual publishers, their business locations and original documents are among the hundreds of images. All types of albums produced by the three named publishers are illustrated, and included are numerous detail images that reveal their distinctive features for ease of identification within the catalog pages. The several catalogs within the book provide each album entry with a unique Lange Number for exact communication between collectors.

Lange’s new book is hard covered, and its cover actually reproduces the image of a National Coin Album binder. The book is printed entirely on 100-pound coated stock and has a sewn binding. This is a high quality book that is meant to last. It is also anticipated that this will be the first in a multi-volume series of books relating the entire history of coin albums and folders published in the USA.

A collector of coin boards and albums for more than 30 years, David W. Lange is best known as Research Director for Numismatic Guaranty Corporation in Sarasota, Florida, as well as the author of six popular books on United States coinage and US Mint history.
