I have an old sepia tone photo of a family ancestor. It was done in the orient about a century ago and is irreplacable. It's about the size of baseball card and I was thinking about using one of those same holders you can buy in the trading shops. They're some kind of hard clear plastic, usually with metal screws in the corners.

Any recommendations? I've copied it but I want to keep the original as long as nature and chemistry will allow.

Here's a good reference: http://www.photographymuseum.com/archival.html. If you want specific advice then see section 7 in the link above.

Much obliged, I'll check them out. I'm concerned about the stability of the plastic and out-gassing.
