As every cover collector knows, condition is everything. But how to protect your covers and keep them in great condition?

Since 2009, we have sent out all our covers in these special pockets, to make sure they arrive clean and protected ready for you to enjoy! By popular request, we are now making our pockets available to buy on their own.

These cover pockets have been commissioned by us to fit our own Buckingham Covers and provide safe, acid-free storage.

It is very important to buy any plastic holders or album leaves for your covers with care. Choose the wrong type of plastic and the print and postmarks on your covers could be permanently degraded.

The plasticisers and coatings on many plastics will react with inks in as short a time as a few years.

Our pockets are made of a material called polypropylene which unlike many other plastics should not cause any damage to your covers. Polypropylene is a material actually recommended by the Library of Congress for storing archive papers.

The pockets are clear, so you can see, hold and enjoy your covers without causing damage to them. Remember, every time you handle a cover that is NOT in a pocket or album, you will be risking the condition.

Each pocket is 23cm x 13cm and a perfect fit for any Buckingham Cover.

Although we have the assurance of our supplier that the wallets are suitable for long term storage and they are made of a recommended material, we haven't undertaken any tests ourselves and therefore we can't 100% guarantee their suitability in the very long term.
