The tape is not nearly as bad as I thought, and somebody said he/she thought they were stars. They are! I paid $70 for all 4 sheets. Pretty good pick-up I say. Should I use isopropyl alcohol or acetone now?

I decided to keep two notes in the frame for now. The other frame's glass was broken.

VERY nice coin!!

If they were mine I would try a q-tip with a bit of alcohol and work of the tape spot.

talk to an archivist, or museum director that can point you in the right direction to someone who fixes and repairs old papers and documents. They will tell you how to best deal with the note.

I would add that universities have archivists or access to them.

If you choose to try isopropyl alcohol -- don't use the stuff that's 90% because the rest is oil or something.

Nice pick up! Enjoy!

I decided to use what I have already: 100% acetone. I carefully removed the tape off, with a lot of tape residue left behind. Then, I used a q-tip dipped in acetone, which actually is working! More later.

I unframed all the bills. I successfully removed all tape and residue without damaging any of the bills! I'm really happy about that! I will post pictures tomorrow of my work. The framed are ruined though, but I don't care.

Does anyone know of a good place to buy frames and plastic protectors for these?

This time, I want to frame them correctly, not by using tape!

Michaels or Hobby Lobby (not sure where you are located) or a good craft store should have the ability to take care of your needs regarding framing.

Perhaps start with a reputable framing shop, some of which, in addition to offering frame and glass options, will assist you in framing it yourself at their premises.

Yes, but that would run me more than the bills cost!

Here are some pics after conservation!

Yes, it looks like the exposed sides yellowed a little. Any way to fix that?
