Regarding last week's pictures of his new coin cabinet, Ray Williams writes:
The pictures came out nice in The E-Sylum. I actually had several emails about the cabinets. I should have given you the website for anyone interested in Craig McDonald's coin cabinets... www.CabinetsByCraig.net, or you can email him directly at CabinetsByCraig@aol.com
However, John W. Adams cautions:
Storage in wood can be death to the coin - there can be more bad chemicals in wood than in PVC flips. The warning about wood breaks my heart. I can't tell you how often I fantasized about having Bushnell's or Wilson's or Clapp's coin cabinet in my living room.
Ray's not so sure. He writes:
The old-time collections seemed to have been stored in Mahogony cabinets without any ill effect. I'd be interested to see what some chemists might have to say about it, if there are any subscribing to The E-Sylum.
