    Please recommend a storage tray system that you use. I was looking at the red felt trays that hold about 20 coins per tray. I would display them loose in the tray slot or use capsules.

    Please show me what you use that is portable.

    I store mine in 2X2's and 3 Ring Binders. Each coin has a number and an associated data page with picture of my coin, the coin I used as a reference and published data. These are in sheet protectors and placed in another 3 Ring Binder.

    I have trays similar to those you alluded to, but they hold 16 per tray, 4 trays to a unit and the units are stackable. Each compartment is deep enough for a coin capsule.
    Also i have 25 albums that have 10 pages holding 6 flips per page. You can see the size in the pic, if you lay out 6 flips as shown and add 1/2 inch each way, you will see they don't take too much room, and will sit quite nicely on a bookshelf.
    Records are kept on a thumb drive by a ref no for each page or tray and a description of each piece including attribution references for varieties, errors and VAM numbers.

    Can't say I have any "single" method of storage/display.. for 2x2s i have 3-4 small albums much like the one expat posted, and classic red 2x2 boxes but in the near future I plan to upgrade those to cases similar to what I use for my slabbed coins as they make 2x2 cases as well...
    For my slabs I use nothing less then Ursae Minoris storage cases.. decent price and extremely well made (plastic coated aluminum vs foil covered plastic most are made of)
    of course I still have a few old pcgs/ngc type boxes kicking around but not for much longer.. :D
    PS they also make cases with "display trays" similar to expat's as well..
