Hey guys!
Newbie coin collector here, so apologies for the cluelessness
I recently picked up some very nice uncirculated walking liberties, and I already have them in the Guardhouse capsules. I know some people swear by the air-tites, though, and I was wondering if the air-tites were a lot better and if I should buy them to replace the ones I already have? Just wanted to make sure that I'm storing them properly.
Appreciate it!
I.N.

I believe Guardhouse are fine, but other opinions are welcome.

Guardhouse makes a quality holder - there's no need for you to replace the holders with Air-Tire brand capsules. I have used both types for years and have not had any issues with either.

Guardhouse also makes a nice row box specifically for coins in capsules (three different sizes to fit the various capsule sizes). The boxes have built-in spaces to separate the capsules stored in them which helps to minimize the chances of scratching them.

IMO, you're off to a good start with the Guardhouse capsules you have.

That sounds interesting, I didn't know they made those. Not too too concerned with that and scratching capsules ATM because I don't have too many yet but I will for sure look into getting a few boxes to organize once I have enough coins. Appreciate it man!

Welcome! I would have to agree with Commems. While I personally use Air-tite ring holders, Guardhouse are on par as to long term protection.
