How to Open/Clean Used AirTite Capsules?


Recommended Posts

When I unloaded some of my pieces a few years ago I still kept the AirTites I'd used for them, and now, looking at my Type set, I think I could stand to spend a little on Choice BU specimens from about 1950 - on rather than sticking the shiniest I could find at the time into my coveted Type set.


So, before I pry open the capsules with my soon-to-be ruined fingernails while risking damage to the capsule, and before I throw those used capsules in with the brand-spanking new ones, does anyone have any suggestions for opening and cleaning them?


Thank you!
