    Hi. My Girlfriend (Username Edelweiss123) recently put up this link. These are acid free, so I think are probably what you are looking for. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    If they are of value sentimentally why not have them framed and backed with felt. That's how my granddads group has lived for the past 60 years or so?

    The best way for me is to apply renaissance wax on them. Moisture and oxygen can not get to them this way. You can use it everywhere, even on photos.

    I keep mine in medal wallets.

    Ik kocht de mijne hier. Ik had ze de volgende dag in huis, snelle verzending met Kiala.
