View Full Version : Recommend a good coin cabinet?
Jan 8, 2008, 06:36 AM
I'm back again wondering if anyone can recommend a good reputable source for a nice small cabinet that could house, say, 150 coins or so, without costing me the shirt off my back:( ? A gentlemen from England was recommended to me several months ago but he claims to have exportation issues.
Further, any suggestions on openly displaying a small grouping of coins that would be safe for the pieces and would look attrative?
Thank you so much!

Check these out at HJB. Pretty Pricey, but nice.
I am hoping they brought one to the auction. If they look nice enough, I may take this route.
If they did bring one, I will let you know how they look. I am heading over to the Waldorf now to browse the coins for tonights auction.

These guys don't have cabinets, but they do carry some decent looking trays & cases...
This guy makes cabinets. They're pretty pricey...
This guy's in the UK, not sure if it's the same one you mentioned...

You could try:
Ed carries the Italian-made Abafil range of cases, click on the menu to see.

Many, many thanks to you all for the good suggestions. Yes, the English gentleman one of you alluded to was indeed the man with the exportation issues. His cabinets are exquisite and handcrafted works of art in their own right, yet pricey. Electrum's suggested sites have some very interesting cabinets (take a look at these!) and ones likely to work for me with prices that wouldn't require a space shuttle to reach, so a special thanks for his suggestions.

You're most welcome.

My friends and I all love our Abafil cases. The red velvet is very classy and worthy of very fine coins. Ed Waddell at coin.com is a source. There are lots of options for tray size and hole (square) sizes. I use a five-tray half-size, but full-size is excellent too. I know collectors who have more than one, including a small one to take their latest purchases around.

Contact John Lavender. He's good friends with a guy in Florida that makes beautiful hand made coin cases. I can't remember the guys website though.
