Thousands of notes purchased, and finally - someone has done it correctly. These are apparently called photo corners. They adhere to the cardboard, the holder goes in, and you don't end up with a holder covered in gummy tape residue from being taped to the dang cardboard. It just hangs out there between the two pieces of cardboard. It's sorcery, SORCERY I TELL YOU!

Clever idea...I like it.
Personally, I use the sticky, top portion of Post-It notes as tape.

Not that I use it. But I have received stuff with painters tape used. Comes off real nice. The other day I did get a note in the mail that was actually sandwiched between two pieces of blue board foam, nothing else. But taped up good!

I use post it notes strategically placed around the perimeter of the holder to secure it in the cardboard.  And I use the thick cardboard that Heritage uses to make sure no bending.  That said I have bought rare notes like this that showed up holderless in a #10 envelope:

You can tell the age of someone when they don't recognize photo corners...used when they actually put pictures into a photo albums that had black construction paper pages.
Always looking for high quality fractional notes, specimens, proofs, experimentals and anything fractional related

Don’t ever buy from Allouez Coin in Wisconsin.  I bought one note from them and it was in a flimsy envelope with no padding or even the cheap paper plates above.  


I called the seller as he also has a brick and mortar store and told him his packing was extremely poor.  He told me off and hung up.  


I will never buy any additional notes from him EVER. 


Every forum member I have bought from packs excellently.  Now the only fear is if the postal service will treat the package well. Not like the magazine I received one time in a bag with a label saying damaged during shipment.  The tire tracks were very evident on the magazine cover what was left of it.

Well at least they didn't have pizza sauce on them.

You know, I post it and it is ridiculous, but honestly, what it comes down to, is most people are just simple people. It's too hard to be mad at folks doing the best they can and who don't know any better. It's been good for a laugh here, but I never complained to the seller, didn't leave them a negative, just chuckled at the silliness of it all because at the end of the day, it's just paper money... and people just doing the best they can do. I could give a friendly tip but too often through the internet it comes off wrong, complaining and smarmy, or rude, so I just let it go considering no harm was truly done. And let's face it, if he'd sent it with cardboard in a holder, we wouldn't all get the laugh, so perhaps it was packed well after all...
