Re: Archival

Archival simply means that the materials involved can be
used for very long term storage of the artifacts without
causing additional deterioration of the artifact beyond what
is already inherent.  Mylar dust jacket covers, paper money
holders, document display covers, all with no PVC content,
acid free envelopes for coins, acid free wax for
preservation, acid free labels, etc. etc. Some of these
materials are a compromise and cause minimal deterioration.
Some materials, like wood,  can result in slight toning of
silver or copper based artifacts or coins [not always
