If the collector wishes to go with the same sort of storage system,
and if the environment is relatively stable, the collector could
purchase polyethylene bags which have double pouches for coin and
label (these can be ordered specially in bulk, or you could order a
roll of "sleeve" polyethylene which could then be heat sealed and
cut into segments). Alternatively, a standard size polyethylene bag
could be heat-sealed to create double pouches.
