Dutch gilt paper

From: Sid Berger <sidney.berger>

We have many sheets of Dutch gilt papers.  On one of them the gold
is flaking off.  It is from the 18th century and has lasted better
than I will by the time I'm its age.  All our other sheets are just
fine.  What is causing the flaking of this one? and what can I do
about it?  Does anyone have any experience with this?
