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..
