I was wanting to order some glassine envelopes to protect my FDCs. Most of the FDCs I have at the 6 and 3/4" envelope, the standard size.
What size glassine is needed? Also is this standard size called size 6? I see the longer envelopes listed in Scott Catalogs as size 10? What size glassines are needed for a size 10 FDC?

Thank you!

David

I don't advise using glassines. There are now safe plastic sleeves you can use, with less hassle. Glassines can in the long term (15+ years) stain covers, and are not completely transparent.

You will want the #6 Glassine Envelope for standard 6.75" covers. A number of the various sizes of glassine envelopes are shown at this link:
