Coin Collecting Album News – David Lange’s Library of Coins Book Now Shipping

By David W. ….
David W. Lange - Coin Boards Volume 2After more than a year-and-a-half of work, Volume Two of my book series on coin albums is complete. My new book detailing the Coin and Currency Institute and its publications–including its lines of coin albums–arrived from the printer while I was at the Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS) convention.

All pre-orders and orders taken at that show have been shipped by priority mail.

The response to my book has been very gratifying so far, due in no small part to the pre-publication offer that was extended until May 1. This is no longer in effect, and the price of this book is now $49.95, plus $10 for priority mail shipping in a rigid, sturdy box.

This latest volume details the very popular Library of Coins line of albums and its little brother for beginners, the Treasury of Coins. Also included are histories of Capitol Coin Company and its publishing division, the Coin and Currency Institute, as well as a biography of founder Robert Friedberg and his family. This is a deluxe, hardcover book of quality similar to that of Volume One. Among its 144 pages are 64 in full color that illustrate all of the C&CI product line in detail.

Also available from PennyBoard PressTM are my two previous books:

Coin Collecting Albums – A Complete History & Catalog Volume One: The National Coin Album & Related Products of Beistle, Raymond & Meghrig. Published at $75, this deluxe, hardcover book is now available at just $49.95.

Coin Collecting Boards of the 1930s & 1940s: A Complete History, Catalog and Value Guide, published at $39.95, is now just $19.95.

Shipping is the same as for the new book. Call or write for combined shipping of two or more books.

Payment may be made by check to David W. Lange or via PayPal to [email protected]. I may also be contacted at POB 110022, Lakewood Ranch, FL 34211 or by telephone at (941) 586-8670. My website ( provides a history of vintage coin boards and serves as a platform from which I buy and sell such items.
