Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9944903A1] A case is described for sealing in a flat article of value (1), with at least one base layer (2), with a reception region (3) for placing the article of value, said reception region being arranged on the base layer (2), with at least one sealing region (4) at least partially enclosing the reception region, with at least one covering layer (5) which can be fastened over the reception region and the sealing region, and with a coating which, after the covering layer has been fastened to the base layer, irreversibly indicates that the covering layer has been separated from the base layer. A case according to the invention can be used for the sealing in and the visual presentation of flat articles of value of all kinds, such as, for example, photographs, slides, coins or mailing stamps. The case can easily be opened and then reused, in particular even reclosed, without being destroyed. However, the first-time opening is irreversibly indicated, so that, if the article of value is returned in the closed case, it is evident that someone could have had access to the article of value and copied, exchanged or falsified it. A method and an apparatus for producing such a case are also described.
