I was given a collection of about 150 sets of Australian commemoratives all in card style folders. What is the best way to store/display them? Putting them in pocket albums means the stamps themselves cant be seen.

Benvenuto,
I am presuming these are Australian "Presentation Packs"

Now you, as everyone else with Australian packs, are met with the decision to unpack, or keep as is.
Caveat: Aust Post suggest the packs are not suitable for long time preservation.

If you wish to display your stamps, then "Hagners" (Vario) pages are available at about $1 a page, or "Hingeless" stamp albums from "Seven Seas"
or print your own pages.

A typical Aussie Presentation Pack........


Some Catalogues Price them.....

Thanks for that. Maybe a loose leaf folder with A4 size sleeves which could take perhaps 4 (2 back to back). Actually it might need 2 folders, but that's ok. I wonder why the Aus PO say they are not suitable for long term storage.

Presentation packs go back many years, some have a cellophane look about them.
Peruse each pack for their printed advice.
Of all the packs that come across my desk, I have never seen any that have deteriorated.

Modern packs appear to use clear "Mylar" plastic which is archival, but that needs to be confirmed.
