Philatelic Conservation - Restoration



Carl Aage Moller in his article 3 rightly continues the long running debate within philately as to what is acceptable conservation and restoration. Most previous articles have ignored, or not taken into account, the professional paper conservator's views and experience. Good philatelic conservation is a question of what is good, in the long term, for the item under question; all other considerations are secondary. Many solutions are complex and are a balance of conservation best practice and philatelic ethics. It follows that any treatment will be a combination of conservation and philatelic expertise.
