Pre-CollectingBefore you get started, you want to get organized and ready for a big influx of coins. You will need a methodology to organize and track your collection. I suggest using Whitman Coin folders. They are inexpensive and durable and are the standard for coin collecting. Here is a list of what I would buy to start today:
- 1 cent – Whitman Lincoln Head Penny Book 2 and 3, which covers1941-2002
- 5 cent- Whitman Jefferson Nickel Book 2 and 3, which covers1962-2002
- 10 cent – Whitman Roosevelt Dimes Books 2 and 3, which covers 1965-2010
- 25 cent – Whitman Washington Quarters Book 3 and 4, which covers 1965-2000 and either Whitman 50 States and Territories complete quarter folder or State Quarters Volume I-III.
