OK moderators and the rest of you.. I have an idea that I came up with, and wanted to get some feedback on this. I perhaps may have a need to secretely stash my silver coins away and keep it out of the obvious places that some burgler would try and find a stash of a few silver coins. I came up with an idea of a paint can. Maybe a pint or gallon can. So, would draining all the paint out from it and rinsing it be good enough? Are the paint fumes (a water-based latex paint can lets use for example) going to be an issue with the impact to the silver coins inside it?
Does anyone know?

Thanks

My self, I'd use a glass jar.

No Paper.  Some paper contains sulfur and would Sulfate the coins.

Linen Rag!

Pack of Silica Gel in the jar.

Replace the air in the jar with Nitrogen and you would be good for 50-100 years or so.



 Cool

Have you thought about a plastic container like a coffee can. It wouldn't have the chemicals in it. I don't know about the silica gel. I think it would hold any moisture it collected against the coins. If you are worried about being robbed I would recommend a safe, or maybe a glass jar buried in the back yard. I would love to come across that jar full of silver some day. Wink

Thanks for the tips, what does the linen rag do? I'll just put the mason jar into the paint can to solve the problem!

Most paint stores have unused quart & gallon cans with lids. Don't cost much. If a paint can is what your want.   Wise

I really hate to be a smart-ass, but.............in this case I can't resist.     Just because it's made of a natural fiber doesn't mean there are no chemicals.....Without chemistry, there is no life.   

However, you're implication that linen contains no elements  or naturally occurring chemicals known to be reactive with silver is well taken.

Cool Beans!  Unbleached Linen Will not corrode the Silver.

I stand corrected. LOL!

Best to use the Old type. 

Retting may be accomplished in a variety of ways. In some parts of the world, linen is still retted by hand, using moisture to rot away the bark. The stalks are spread on dewy slopes, submerged in stagnant pools of water, or placed in running streams. Workers must wait for the water to begin rotting or fermenting the stem?sometimes more than a week or two. However, most manufacturers use chemicals for retting. The plants are placed in a solution either of alkali or oxalic acid, then pressurized and boiled. This method is easy to monitor and rather quick, although some believe that chemical retting adversely affects the color and strength of the fiber and hand retting produces the finest linen. Vat or mechanical retting requires that the stalks be submerged in vats of warm water, hastening the decomposition of the stem. The flax is then removed from the vats and passed between rollers to crush the bark as clean water flushes away the pectin and other impurities.
