  I like the Macromount size with the clear friction fit tops, I imagine
they keep moisture away from the piece better than a Riker. Then again I
haven't seen a Riker in person yet so maybe I'm wrong. I know he's looking
for something for his 2+" and over pieces. When I get bigger pieces I'll put
them in a "Dry box" display case or keep them in tupperware type containers
with desiccant.
