Hi,
Does anyone have any ideas on replacing the pliofilm cover on a 1957 set in the original cardboard holder? I recently acquired one that has a small tear and was hoping I could replace it with something similar.

Thanks.

I think that thin mylar would be about the closest you can get. Mylar is coin safe.

I know a couple dealersput the sets into seran wrap, others out it into a large Bill holder and then wrap it. Whatever floats your boat :)

Although the pliofilm is damaged the coins cannot be removed from the cardboard without causing further damage to the film. In this state there is no doubt that all the coins are the original that left the mint in the holder in 1957. Would the integrity of the set be compromised if I took them out of the original cardboard and put them into a Capital plastics holder? Is it better to leave them in the Cardboard and re-cover them?

I'd personally break the set out of the cardboard, it won't affect value. would you mind posting pictures of the set?

it will certainly affect value once it is out of the original packaging.. if you have just a small tear , just cover it with a small piece of plastic wrap..the set will still be original..

I think if the coins are superb with cameos you could remove them, but if they are of more common grades and lacking cameos you may be better to leave them original.

I think what dollar man said is right to post photos

I would be inclined to place some clear acetate sheet on either side, and staple or tape into place. Cut the acetate sheet to about 0.5 mm less in width and length.

Optional to leave the remaining Pliofilm in place; it will provide some extra protection anyway.

Acetate sheet is used in some food packaging and has no plasticisers and chlorine that can contaminate food, and so should be quite safe for coin storage.

My '59 set is still in the cardboard with what I assumed was the original pliofilm but most of the silvers have toned quite a bit. The dime is completely dark.

Is it likely that it's not the original wrapper? I don't think I have a photo and it's packed in the safe at the moment and I'm not going to dig it out.
- I've been collecting Lincoln cents for about two score and seven years & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, etc.
- I've also completed MS sets of Jeffersons and Franklins and I enjoy the hunt for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
