A great forum to discuss coins is Coin Community.

Most of the coins I bought were purchased on eBay or BidStart, through the Coin Community buy/sell/swap portal, or from Miller's Mint. All of my gold purchases thus far have been through APMEX.

Albums purchased from Dansco and Eagle Coin Holders.

Technical Details

Unused ports on the Dansco pages were blanked out using scrap strips of pleather torn from spare album pages.

The 2x2 coin holders in the Errors and Oddities album are from Eagle Coin Holders and labeled with a Casio KL-60 Label It! label printer using an XR-9X cartridge (black ink on clear tape) set at size = 1. This label printer was also used to create the labels for page 5 of the Jefferson Nickels album, and tab labels for the OFEC index pages.

I used a Jores Technologies FS-100 Impulse Sealer to seal coins and tokens in Saflip 2x2 and 2.5x2.5 double pocket coin flips, but all of those may be phased out. The idea worked very well, but I am upgrading from AU to MS so I'm getting slabbed coins. Where a sealed Saflip makes the most sense, that is what I will do.
