Paper Money Storage

Post by Thomas Cha » Tue, 01 Oct 1996 04:00:00



I know mylar pages are the best for storing paper money collection. But
they are quite expensive at about $200 per 100. I've bought 300 crystal
clear polypropylene 3-ring pages at $6.79 per 150 pages at the BJ
Wholesale Club to replace my vinyl pages. These're archival quality. The
page does not have pockets. But I put up to three notes in a page and
they seems to cling in place better than the vinyl pockets.

holders in them..you are taking the risk..of the Notes slipping out,
even if you store the binder flat..you will have to be very
careful when you tilt it or hold it up. If it were me I would
not take that chance..unless no Note is valued over $10.00 .
The safest way..that I would store Notes..depending on the size,
but with Modern WPM 80% of Notes should fit in a 7 1/2 x 4 1/4"
Mylar holder...and the Notes that you really like or are worth
over 20.00 ..I would put that holder inside of a 8 x 5" Mylar
holder..for the extra protection. All Notes should be looked at
every 12 or so Months..just for safety reasons..make sure nothing
is wrong..and also to give them some Fresh air..Notes NEED air
to breath...unlike coins.

  I think you're paying too much for Mylar.  Last I checked the going
rate for that kind of quantity was about $50 for 100.

Is Mylar the Best?
When I buy notes, they are often sent in flimsy holders.
At a local coin store, I bought thicker, sturdier holders. I don't know
what either are made of.
Which is better, thick of thin?

David...You spend alot of Money on USA Notes..and you do not
know how to store them? I tell all my customers Never to use
PVC..use Mylar or a simular Archival quality holders only.
Your collection..will start to deteriorate if the Holders
are not chemically inert. You should order a few hundred
Mylar holders..7 1/2 x 4 1/4" and/or 8 x 5". You honestly
mean to say..That no Dealer has ever told you this???

Mylar is the best for banknotes.  Just be sure you are getting
good quality mylar holders, some are of better quality than
others.  There are a few dealers proclaming their holders
are better than the competition's.  I won't make dealer
recommendations like I used to on this but will let people
make up their own mind.  Check Bank Note Reporter for Mylar
holder ads.  John S.

Hi David,
Thick or thin is not the issue. You have to go with a good quality
Mylar holder. I buy mine from Denly, but there are many other sources.
They do feel kind of "thin", but if you handle and store your notes
correctly, you should have no problems. They were $21.50 for a pack of
50 the last time I bought some. Well worth it to store your new Fr41!

I can not get hold of Mylar here in England. Does anyone know where I can
get hold of some?
