After reading all I could find on this great CT community about how to storage coins I decided to say goodbye to my cardboard holders. Not an easy decision to make cause this means a whole, whole lot of work Why did I decide to quit those holders? You cannot get the coin out without destroying the holder. For me that is a big problem! Big coins (sestertii) don’t fit easily.... There is not much space to write things down, especially with those big coins. I somehow never seem to have cardboard holders in the good size. IMO coins don’t look that nice in those holders..... What next ? I was not sure what the best choice was: envelopes or flips. I decided to go for saflips and didn’t regret it for one moment. Why not ? These saflips are wonderful. I have no problem handling them and they don’t crack (anyway mine don’t....). You can go throug your coins and see every coin. A big plus for me. Mine came with handy inserts with lots of room for information. IMO the coins look great in those flips My handwriting is terrible so I decided to use a labelmaker for the following information, in three lines: Number (from my datebase) + name emperor (or other name) Type of coin + size + weight RIC (or other identification) number. For me that is enough to identify the coin. All the other information is in my database. I decided to hire a safe deposit where I’ll bring most of my coins. Some of them I’ll keep at home. I am working out some sort of roulating system. This was coin number 64, meaning a long, long way to go yet.... Btw. I bought these saflips from a U.S. shop cause I couldn’t find them in The Netherlands or elsewhere in Europe. That makes them rather expensive..... If someone knows a cheaper place to buy them I would love to hear it.
