...Visit any Anupam Stationery store and I am sure you will get it.

As far as my creepy avatar is concerned, it pretty much depicts my mood this Monday morning.  ;D

Anupam stationery shop ? hmm, not sure there's any of those around my place...but atleast i know to ask for a flat clinch stapler now  :)

Okies on the avatar...so we'll see a change soon once your mood changes then  ;)

@akona20,
I am interested in storing coins for long term and not viewing ... right now i just put them in a Mylar[Plastic?] coin bag and put it in a air tight box ... no intention to view them for years ...
From your description I get some idea of the archival type envelopes, Is it possible for you to put a picture so that I can get a better idea, also where are these available [any link, if its India, it would be added bouns]

The coins are then housed in numbered acid free museum archival type envelopes which are available for coins at a very cheap price. The enveloped coins are then housed in acid free achival boxes with ample silica gel added to ensure moisture is kept at bay.

The supplier I recommend for the envelopes is Lindner of the USA.

I am sure there are others. I do not know if they are available in India but they are around 9 cents (US) each when bought in lots of a 100 which is a small price to pay.

Given what seems to be a scarcity of good resources for collectors in India there may be a high end business opportunity.

For complete accuracy Lindner is a German company with a major presence in the USA.

Other well known brands are Lighthouse (an American brand) and Importa (an European brand).

Quality of coin holders is also extremely important whether self sealing or stapled. I had bought some holders that have clear film glued outside the holder. Mostly I have seen clear film inside the holder so outside of the holder you get dry cardboard. In my case I have this thin clear film outside the holder, now when I store my coins in a 2*2 coin sheet it attracts moisture.

In a way its good cause I know inside the holder my coins are safe cause Inside I have hard cardboard but outside the holders they have big weird sweat/ moist patches everywhere. :(
Warm Regards,
Mackie

Has anybody used coin holders manufactured by Hartberger? I'd appreciate feedback. :)

Very good quality. Expensive.

Thanks! I may not buy directly from Hartberger but from a wholesale dealer who is offering them bit cheaper than the company. It will be still expensive but I have no other choice. Last time I had bought from a British dealer but at current exchange rate of £1=INR 103, it will be far more expensive than the dealer I'm following now...

Indeed good quality and cheaper than Leuchtturm! If you order directly from Hartberger you also get some discount on next orders but not a lot unfortunately.

Thanks! It seems that they don't ship outside Europe so it won't be possible for me to order directly from Hartberger anyway.  :( As I said, no matter where I buy from, it is going to be an expensive affair for me so I think I'll see if I can get some extra concession from the dealer. ;)

Once again, thanks Peter and eurocoin for the feedback! I'm quite happy to see the positive feedback for Hartberger. 8)
