|"Boba" Fisher POTF Coin Frame|
|Although a large, specially-designed POTF coin frame was issued in very limited numbers to select Kenner executives, and a small mail-away album was planned for the future, Kenner never released a holder of any sort for their short-lived line of POTF coin premiums. Oddly enough, even in the absence of a licensed coin display product, very few unlicensed frames or albums have made significant inroads into the hobby. During the early '90s, however, a collector named Bob Fisher did produce a small number of frames specifically designed for the display of complete sets of POTF coins. These frames became quite well known among serious collectors of the time, and are still remembered fondly by many today. As you can see, not only did each frame feature a space for all 62 coins, an area was provided in the upper left corner for either a Star Wars or a POTF logo (they seem to have been made in both versions). What really made the frames ideal for coin display, however, was their being double-sided--with glass on both sides of the frame, both front and back of each coin could be viewed with ease.
Here we have a revealing shot of one of these frames in the process of being created. As you can see, a good deal of precision was required in making them. Unfortunately, not many of these frames were produced and Mr. Fisher ceased making them several years ago. He also made a frame for the Droids and Ewoks coins.
