Caring for Your Paper Money Collection

Caring for paper money is very similar to caring for collectible coins and stamps. You must have the right supplies—like acid-free holders and soft gloves—to preserve the collectibles and prevent unnecessary damages. Read on for a better look at how to care for your paper money collection.

Purchase the necessary handling and display supplies that pertain to paper money. These supplies will involve specific holders that are free of acid and polyvinyl chloride. Ensure that your collection is away from direct sunlight or harsh lighting because this can cause the paper to turn yellow and fall apart. Store your protected paper money in a climate-controlled environment that is free of moisture. For example, a paper money collection should not be stored in an attic or basement, because these areas are often exposed to extreme temperatures and humidity.
