Collecting Albums

One can buy collecting albums in various countries and the albums they offer differ in size, quality and price.
I have personal experience with the albums of the Belgian firm Boone Shares in Antwewerp (Belgium), and the German firm Kuerle Verlag. I have seen with other collectors the albums of the German firm Benecke and Rehse.
Besides I have experience with albums that were once sold by the Dutch Collectors' Society VVOF and several other brands that I acquired as second hand.

I do not wish to advice one brand or the other publicly although I have different experiences with each of these products. If you want my personal opinion, just ask.
As with most products: one has to pay for quality. But the cheaper products may well suit the collector that is not carrying the albums around to bourses frequently and is not handling these very frequently.

I invite album sellers to send me an ad or scan of their ads in journals or leaflets in order to offer the collectors society as broad a choice as possible here.
