Does anyone have information on how to repair pinholes?
 
I am not looking to sell, just to make the notes that I have that much nicer and not become larger holes. They have sentimental value for our family.
 
This is something that a professional conserver can only perform? Where can I find one?
 
Thanks.

They are all located on each corner, from the margin to about 1/2 inch in toward the note. No pinholes on the main aspect of the note.  They are many of them. One of them looks bigger, but all the others look like a normal pinholes, if there is such a thing.
 
Can't really see them unless you hold up to a light, although the ones in the margin itself are more readily apparent.
 
Does that answer your question?

YOU CANT REPAIR A HOLE IN A NOTE.  I NEVER HEARD OF THAT.   THEY TELL YOU DONT CLEAN COINS.  I SAY YOU CANT REPAIR A NOTE.  YOU CAN RESTORE AN OIL PAINTING, BUT REPAIR A NOTE? WHY?  FIND ME A RARE NOTE WORTH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND MAYBE SOMEBODY MIGHT RECOMMEND REPAIR, AND EVEN THEN, IT PROBABLY SHOULD NOT BE DONE.

Would you please not shout at us by typing in all caps? It's very impolite.

IF YOU CONSIDER CAPS SHOUTING, YOUVE BEEN ON THE INTERNET TOO LONG.  SHUT OFF THE COMPUTER AND TAKE A WALK OUTSIDE.  I WAS TOO LAZY TO TURN MY CAPS OFF IN MY PRIOR POST, BUT GIVE ME A FING BREAK!    COMMENT ON THE PIN-HOLE ISSUE, NOT MY CAPS.

Without getting upset... opinions... everyone has one.  Is it too much to press the Caps lock-unlock key if one of your forum member request that someone do so?


Notes can be repaired.  Most repaired or "restored" or "conserved" notes have been the subject of cutting.... that's why you see notes that have hardly any space on top, bottom, sides.

Another "conservation" method I have seen is bleaching a dirty note with 100% hydrogen peroxide to make it whiter and to lift the stains.

Pin hole conservation is achieve with paper mache.  This is only for your own edification.  A grader will pick it up quickly.

Another method to bring about stiffness is to mix talcum powder with starch and paint it on the note.  Put it between drying paper and then give a good press. 

All of the above mentioned procedures have been practiced by Currency seller at one time or another.  I discovered the talcum powder ruse when I identified such a note and returned it to the famous name seller.

Information is what we all seek.  It keeps us from being victim and hopefully prevent us from defrauding others.

Thank you. I feel I was very reasonable in my request.

It is even taught as an improper way to type (as if you were speaking) in all BEGINNER Computer classes.

As a dealer, my biggest concern with any repairs or modifications is the possible misrepresentation that may occur in the future with that coin or currency. That has the potential of creating a fraud which is not a light charge.

If the piece is a family heirloom, whose to say the "damage" that has occurred hasn't been done by a family member? I have a 1909S VDB cent that my father bought for me in the 1950's that I placed on a railroad track. My children place more value on that single coin over anything else in my inventory or collection. Why? Because it tells a story. If what you have tells a story, value it and the story together.
 
Just my 2c.
