    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    Green? That does it. Andromeda Strain. Leave it alone and rent the movie. No chimps.

    The rim on the nickel does have a blue hue to it.

    Gotta '55 'flat pack' that is pristine and proper..........proper storage is a factor when keeping these.

    Yep, I gotz me toouvem. In fact, all of my long held proof sets are fine, white and pristine like I like 'em. The ones with "color" (aka damage) I own are ones I picked up in recent years with the express purpose of studying them.

    The only proofs I have that are chemically unstable are the ones in TPGS slabs.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    The mint label seems like a likely culprit

    I don't think cellophane degrades into nasty things, but I know enough just enough organic chemistry to know that I don't always know what I'm talking about :confused:

    Loved that movie. Interesting factoid, the project scoop discussed in the book and movie actually existed. Another interesting thing is the book contained a bibliography of sources, and the names of some of the authors are the same as some of the characters in the story.
