Dave Posted May 31, 2006 Report Share Posted May 31, 2006 Do you keep track of your collection? I was wondering if perhaps my method of keeping track of my paper money collection was adequate. I keep a list mainly for insurance purposes in case of theft, fire/water damage etc. I was wondering what safeguards some of you have in tracking your collections and if mine measured up. I used to use a computer program made specifically for cataloguing my notes, but it had some glitch in it so I stopped. What I currently have is a list of all my notes on my computer (with back-ups emailed to different email accounts) that list the country, denomination, year, serial number, grade, and whether is has ultraviolet properties and watermarks. I also have a scan of one type of each note as well the list which includes duplicates with different serial numbers, etc. Is there anything else that I should be keeping track of? I really don’t want to have to keep a scan of the many duplicates/runs of notes, though I guess a few digital photos of them together could be blown up enough to see the serial numbers, condition, etc. A nice fire-proof gun safe would hold them nicely, and put an end to my need of a list, but I can't figure a way to get it downstairs without killing myself, which I would rather avoid if at all possible.
