6. Sometimes, you just can't save a stamp
Some stamps, mostly printed in the last 50 years, are actually self destructing. Either they were printed on a high-acid paper (which yellows and falls apart over time) or the gum used will degrade and discolour a stamp. The best thing to do in these situations is to remove the offending material, if possible, before it does any further damage.

Plastics Report for Stamp Use
For those BIA members who may have missed the announcement in the philatelic press recently, the study by the University of Alabama on the safety of plastics for storing and displaying stamps is still available. Dr. William Souder of the Center for the Management of Science and Technology conducted one of the first scientific studies of plastic products for use in the stamp hobby. Dr. Souder, himself a stamp collector, presents results that indicate modern PVC plastics are safer than previously suggested and that much confusion exists in the plastics industry regarding this issue. The report is free and is available by request from:
