I am trying to take good care of my boyfriend's stamp collection, which he got from his grandfather. There were simply piles and piles of stamps in a box - mostly connected to the envelope. His grandfather had cut around the postmark for each one.

I found they fit quite nicely into acid-free plastic sleeves meant to hold business cards, in a 3 ring binder. I now have four large 3 ring binders full of these sleeves, with the stamps in them. Is there any danger in me doing this?

I'm working on the Christmas stamps again and so far these binder sleeves have been *great*. They hold the stamps well and the stamps seem in good condition. I have to go buy some more sleeves!

Your concern about using plastic sleeves to store stamps and its long term effects is a good question. Here is a link to a website that discusses this topic

Stamps and Plastics

I can't give you a definitive answer but I hope the article on this website can point you in the right direction.
