Question: What do you get when you cross a Red Book with a Whitman Folder?
Answer: A Search and Save book dedicated to the new collector.
|Well known traditional support for collectors.|
|New products for new generations.|
|Historical narratives that are richer than |
the brief paragraphs in the Red Book.
All federal money is legal tender. A Jefferson nickel from 1938 is just as spendable as one from 2008. And you can find those 1938 5-cent coins in circulation if you look at your change. The new collector will eventually go to a coin store to find a silver 5-cent coin from 1942 to 1945. But that decision can be made later. In the mean time, five different Jefferson Nickels are easy to find in circulation, as are eight different Lincoln cents (four others will be inexpensive at a coin store).
|How to hold (and not hold) a coin. |
This illustration is in all Search and Save books.
|The 50 State Quarter book only has 11 spaces to fill,|
one from each year of issue. Pick your favorite coin.
These tools support "type collecting." Rather than one coin from each Mint from each year of issue, you only need to find one of each type, regardless of year or Mint.
Former ANA President and former Krause Corporation president Clifford Mishler had a stump speech that he delivered at conventions. Collectors are a type of person, he said. He called it “a gene you do not inherit.” The children of collectors may not be collectors: it is a small tragedy that we know. The grandchildren just want the money from the coins: they do not care about the coins. But we do. And some of our grandchildren and great-grandchildren may well, also. These Whitman products can open the doors to coin collecting, the most popular hobby in the world.
