Any of the pages made from Mylar, or polyethylene are fine, neither use plasticizers. It is the vinyl plastics that have the problems.

Just bought 50 pieces of self adhesive coin holders.I haven't got them yet,but will definitely share my experience after I get them.He is quite reputed dealer on E-bay India,so I hope there will not be any problem with holders. ::)

Those should be fine, the 'plastic window' in them is safe, and generally covers the carboard. Some of the better types use  a non-acid cardboard also, soyou should be good  all around.

Hi...started putting my coins into a coin album (made in china). Now reading more on this in WoC I am planning to store these in cardboard Coinholders with a transparent sheet 100% acid-free plasticizer (as claimed by the manufacturer) and put them into coin holder sheets. However these coinholder sheets are probably made in China. Is this a workable solution?

Requesting guidance.
