Poll Question
Currently, I store my raw FRN FRB district sets with all notes of a series in the same currency sleeve. I've been thinking about putting them into separate sleeves, which would mean I need to purchase a few hundred sleeves. I've been going back and forth between getting the type that is open on the sides with a top flap that folds over and the type that is closed on the sides with an opening at the top.

So, I was wondering what type of sleeve is the most popular with everyone. Feel free to comment on the pros and cons of each type as you see them.

Poll Question: If you use currency sleeves for raw notes, do you use the fold over type or top loader type of sleeve?

Poll Choices
  Top Loader Sleeve
  Fold Over Sleeve

I use a fold over. I voted that way and the poll didn't accept my vote.

The poll says it's open. I've asked the admins to look at the poll and see if they can figure out why it wouldn't let you vote.

Took mine alright. I use the top load. I don't have any super-dooper values, SC's Blue/Red/Green seals and foreign notes. Then I organize by vinyl pages, 2,3, or 4 sections depending on bill size. I figure that the sleeve keeps it fairly clean and flat, the binder then helps keep air and other elements away. Now if it were very valuable, I'd use a sealed form of PVC free mylar.

Top load. Easy in, easy out, smaller chance of corner rub or fold.

I prefer to use the top load style.

I have some paper items in the fold over style holders too. I purchased a pack because I needed a larger size to accommodate some over-sized checks and envelopes.

Top loaders are great for FRN's with some stiffness. I also collect obsolete rags and trying to get them into a top loader is really tough. Easier to use the foldover type since I can open them up enough to lay them into the holder and close them up.

For a note in pretty bad shape, the fold over type of sleeve is the best way to go.

I don't use albums, prefer a Globe-Weis file box for storage, so the fold-over sleeves fit perfectly. I don't like the open top, you have to drag the note out of the sleeve under tension, which pulls the paper. The foldtop sleeves open up completely and allow removal of the note without tension on the fibers.

This is pretty much exactly why I keep flipping back and forth between which type to purchase.

The fold over type provides easy insertion of a note, but is less thick (I've only seen 4 mil) and more expensive (at least every place I've looked at).

The top loader type is not as easy to insert a note into, is generally thicker (Supersafe has 5mil and 5/10mil versions) and is a little less expensive.

To me, both types had their +'s and -'s and that's why I was wondering what most folks use.

So far, it looks like top loaders are more popular by a wide margin.

If you've ever received a note from a major auction house like Heritage, Stacks-Bowers, Lyn Knight, or Spink, you'll notice it's in a top load currency sleeve.
