What are the best suggestions for Banknote Storage?

Post by Ryan Stocks »

My banknote collection is in its early days, with only a few specimens, so at present, they simply sit in an envelope in my desk.

I am looking for some examples of storage for inspiration.

Thank you, Ryan Stocks.

#3 size Hagner sheets (in centre) are preferred by most I think. #4 for smaller ones, and #2 for older style deeper ones.

Me too, I also keep my banknotes in clear pocket sheets, but put black paper sheet (available from the album manufacturer) between the clear pocket sheets. In this way, you can see both sides of the banknotes but see each page separately:

Vario for me too.
Another alternative is the Ultra Pro Platinum sleeve (made in the USA).
These were used in the albums produced by Note Printing Australia in the 1990's to house their products.

The Ultra Pro are decent enough for beginners or people trying to keep their costs down.
The Vario 3C are probably your best option. I do like the look with the black sheets inserted between the pages.

The Hagner or Unisafe or Vario 3 pocket black stock sheets do work, but most bill collectors will want to see both sides without having to take the note out.

Thanking you all kindly for your suggestions.

I have decided to purchase some plastic banknote slips to which I will mount on card paper to be placed in an album. This is so I can include with it general information on the page with the banknote. I do have a mock-up page that I was going to post, but I am unable to work out how to include images.

The information I included on the mock-up is:-
- Banknote series name,
- Years the series was issued,
- Denomination,
- Printer,
- Signatures,
- Catalogue Number,
- Watermark,
- General description of obverse & reverse, and
- General purchase information.

If anyone can think of any additional information of which I may include, please suggest.
- Ryan Stocks

Another "information field" I commonly encounter is :
"Value in collectors home currency (i.e. AUD) on day of issue".
People like to see that a fifty bazillion note was worth around $20 when issued, (as was the five bazillion, when that was issued etc ....).

You'll encounter Lire, heavy Lire, and all sorts of discontinued currencies, so it can be quite useful to have a constant reference point.

Yes currencies move about rapidly at times, so noting exchange rate at time of new issue is very wise. :!:
