How do you store your banknotes?

    Hey, I am pretty experienced in banknote collecting, but have always been having trouble keeping my stuff stored inexpensively. I'd rather have my stuff in albums than those loose plastic holders, but BCW 3 ring binder sheets are pretty expensive, almost always over 50 cents per sheet that store 3 or 4 banknotes, while sleeves can be as cheap as 8 dollars for 400 banknotes. How do you guys store your bills and where do you buy from?

    Nice, I checked the website, and 20 bucks for 32 bills is pretty good for a fancy holder like this but I'm trying to get more of a bulk thing going, since I don't collect more expensive currencies like US Dollars as often as some of the cheaper ones.

    I store mine in semi rigid holders plus in an album.

    That's what I think I should do right now, but with a large collection of mostly cheaper bills, it doesn't seem worth a premium album holder to keep most of my collection.

    These are relatively inexpensive. I believe they are still made. Each has 11 semi rigid sleeves so you can store 22 notes back to back.

    Yeah that could work for some expensive notes I would want displayed especially and nicely.

    What do you all use for certified bank notes? I have recently began collecting Franklin colonial currency pieces.

    I think most certifiers have good enough plastic you can store it anywhere you like. I personally keep mine in my binder pocket since I only have a few.

    Boylston Trading Company used to send approvals in attractive ungummed #10 half-windowed white envelopes...
    Semi-rigid/rigid top loaders add enormous weight to my collection's cardboard envelope box...
    and those loaders comprise a very significant fraction of the "market value":) of my "rag" collection.
