Large spine (3"), 4-ring Compact albums for Postcards, Covers, Stamp Mini Sheets, Currency (Banknotes), Booklets, Matchbook Covers, etc. A collecting system with enormous capacity - at an attractive price and doesn't take up a lot of space on your bookshelf.
Thanks to its huge capacity, the Compact Album series saves not only money but also space.
It couldn't be easier: Just slip Postcards, FDC's, ETB's, Currency/Paper Money, Booklets, Coil Pairs and Yearly Souvenir Cards & Folders into these polyester specialty pages. We also now have compact albums for Coins!
Both the richly padded, saddle tan Luxus album and the blue Standard album have a strong 4-ring mechanism. The patented clamping mechanism, located on the inside of the front cover, clamps the cover to the spine to keep the album steady. Therefore, the album will hold steady even after filling up to maximum capacity.
Size of the albums: 9" x 9-3/4"H with a 3" spine.
Distance between rings for 4-ring album: 40 mm - 80mm - 40 mm, (1-9/16) - (3-5/32") - (1-9/16)
Pages for the Compact system are approx. 7-1/2" x 9-1/2" high, and come in clear and black.
Clear pages are crystal clear on both sides, with pockets on one side only to view both sides of the postcards/covers/banknotes etc. without having to remove them from the pages. The polyester inserts supplied with the clear pages can be removed to view both sides of the covers, postcards, etc.
Black pages have crystal clear pockets on both sides so you can put items both sides and you won't see through to the other side. This works great if you have items that are different sizes.
Also, take a look at our sliding track (No. 853) for use with slipcases shown below. They enable the album to be removed from the slipcase without removing the slipcase from the shelf.
