Is anyone making a Euro album yet??..

Post by Harv Lase » Thu, 17 Jan 2002 03:54:46



Have any of you spotted an album that will hold one eight coin set of ?uros
from each country yet?  As these eBay wins arrive, I find myself with a
collection of furrin' envelopes holding eight coins in various kinds of
holders.. flips, 2x2s, loose, etc. etc..

It'd be kinda nice to have a ?uro album to coagulate them all into one
easy-to-view place..

Hey you Intercept Shield guys.. you read this group?  Make an album like
that and I'll buy one, thankyewverymuch..

Thanks,

Harv

http://www.hartberger.nl/ has pre-printed euro-albums. You have to parse
the Dutch pages, though, as I could not find them in the English lingo
index.

Harv,
Just wondering...
Are you keeping the starter sets in their little plastic packages?
Think there will be a premium to do so, down the road?
So far, I've got starter sets in hand from Austria, Belgium, Germany,
and Ireland. My buddy in Spain just sent me one of each coin, not a
starter set. Still waiting for Greece (from Apostolidis - any one get
them yet?), Holland, France, Italy, and probably Luxembourg. Also
expecting 8 coins (not a starter set) from Portugal, no luck on
Finland (won't pay those prices), and awaiting San Marino (credit card
charged).

I'm not buying the baggie sets.. I'm buying only eight coin sets..

I could guess but I've been wrong so many times before, I'd rather not..
however that cheap plastic cannot possibly be good for long-term storage..
unless it causes beautiful toning ;) ..

I've got eight coin sets in hand from Greece, Italy, and Germany and have
won, paid for, and am waiting for six other countries.. I'm going to end up
with close to 100 coins and no good way to organize them for viewing. All I
want is some kind of album labelled by country into which I can put all
these eight coin sets.. so far, I'm just keeping them in the mailers they
arrive in for lack of any other way to organize and view them..

I figured I might as well be consistant and stick to buying just the eight
coin sets otherwise I'd end up with a combination of those and plastic bags
fulla coins, and the "starter kits" seem to be selling for 3x to 4x as much
as an eight coin set.  I'm not looking to buy these and re-sell them, just
get one coin of each demonination from each of the countries and stick'em
all in a single album..

Parse? PARSE? Dutch might as well be Martian.. I can barely squeak my way
through first grade Spanish or French, or I could use Babelfish to
translate.. but Babelfish doesn't handle Dutch translations.  I see some
nice Euro albums there but no English version of their site..

Someone out there with an English language site has to be selling them..
<<sigh>>

Thanks.. if I could read Italian, I might even try ordering something from
them and know that I was paying for a coin album and not be surprised when a
crate of shoes shows up at my door ;)

No English version of that site that I can see..

Come on coin guys.. NO American supply store sells a Euro coin album yet!?
:(

All I've seen are local language editions of cheap albums overpriced by
several 100%'s!!
Italian album especially was made of cardboard pages which would eventually
badly tone the coins...
I suggest 2x2's and a standard album with Dutch pages inside and a few blank
2x2's (not wholed) which can get any inscription you like.
Cost for a 15 page album plus holders for the coins would be under 35-40$.

Reminds me of a funny story when I was travelling in Europe 25 years
ago.
We were in a restaurant in Switzerland, and I had my trusty "Berlitz
14 languages of Europe" phrasebook open to decipher the German menu. A
couple of Japanese at the next table were laughing at us as we were
deciphering. We got the last laugh when they would up with a plate of
salad for dessert :.)

Thanks.. guess I'll figure something out.. there are some albums available
in the USA which are totally blank pages with little paper labels so you can
use them for anything, I think..

By the way, did you ship the Netherlands Euro Set I ordered from you yet? Or
did your site say shipping STARTED on 1/15/2002 (today)??..

Also, what happened with that pile of Euro money that you lost? What do you
think happened to it?

That it just fell out of your pocket somewhere or do you think someone stole
it from you like a pickpocket thief?

Regards,

Harv

The Euro album is for sale here in the Netherlands. Looks really good and
is available in 3 colors. Darkgreen, Euroblue and Darkred.
For each country there is a special page with info about the specific euro.
Unfortunately until now there are now special pages for the countries with
a 1999, 2000, 2001.
But as the manin the shop told me, they will be available in the near
future.

I am not sure how much work it will take and how many albums are available
in the shop but I am offering my help to get these albums.
Maybe it's a strange gesture these days but I am not an experieced
collector nor somebody with a commercial background.

What bothers me is that I start this hobby (collecting euro's) but it is
almost impossible to get good quality sets from other countries then
Holland. Only if you wish to pay 5x the amount.

So, I have a solution...
If you pay the album + postage + something extra for the petrol + a set of
euro's from your country I'll send you an album.

The price I have payed for this album is about €28,- and I am not intend to
make profit.


Regards
Ron

I ordered a Lighthouse (Leuchtturm) Euro coin album from Kosel in
Austria.

http://www.kosel.com/en/sh/lema.htm

With the extra pages for the Monaco, San Marino, and Vatican sets, it
came to $20.17 including shipping to the U.S. I'm expecting it to
arrive any day now.....
