Direct Fit Airtite Coin Holders

Proof American Silver Eagle in Direct Fit Air Tite Coin Holder

As a follow on to the post I made about ring type air tite coin holders I've decided to post about direct fit air tite coin holders. As their name suggests these coin holders retain the coin securely by the coin fitting directly and securely into the holder and not allowing the coin to move within the holder. The container itself provides an air tight and chemically inert environment to prevent toning of the coin. By retaining the coin securely in the holder the coin cannot move or be damaged.

Coins in direct fit airtite coin holders are attractive and well protected but they pose a problem of storage. Each holder has a different outside diameter and thus they can be difficult to store in a manner that allows them to be easily viewed and enjoyed. The other problem is that you are not guaranteed to find a holder that fits the particular coin you are trying to store. This can result in compromises being made and the coin being able to move about in the holder and possibly be damaged. This can be a particular problem if you are trying to store non US coins as most air tite manufacturers make their holders to suit United States coinage.
