I registered some time ago but this is my first posting. I have a wide selection of older micromounts of which some are in pretty bad shape with peeling labels, broken cork or pin mounts or have separated from a foam like base. I was wondering what you would normally do in such a case?
I haven't started mounting yet but I am thinking of using a post attached to the underside of the narrow lid as I may want to view the sides of a specimen.
I often remount specimens that are loose or have damaged mounts, and sometimes labels. But I try not to do it if the mount has a significant history (micromounter, ownership, etc) I mount the specimens to the inside-bottom of the box as this provides the best protection for the piece. Admittedly it makes the sides more difficult to see, but one usually mounts to place the interesting stuff on top.
