Gentlemen
I would like to share this I think is really helpful
I get worried about moth damage or moisture damage to collectibles so for the cloth badges I found these Perspex coin display boxes which work very well in my opinion
Kind regards Chay

Just a thought !
People ask what do I store in and whatís best well here is the proof!
These Royal Mint coins stay preserved in mint condition perfectly in Perspex containers!

Default Very Nice

One of the main things that kept me for years from uniforms was the protection aspect.

Rich,
I know what you mean !
I have never had a moth attack itís the stuff of nightmares I do have uniforms on display and they have moth repellent cardboard in them. I usually regularly check the headgear and uniforms and also generally around for the moths.

Moths like damp and dark areas that are neglected I have seen what they can do fortunately I wasnít the victim !

Kind regards Chay
