Where does everyone keep their certificates on their bows and instruments? Currently I keep mine in my case, but figured maybe it's best to keep it elsewhere in case it is stolen. Are scans of certificates considered valid as a backup? My violin has Millant papers and that'll never be reissued since he is now deceased.
Safety-deposit box. Keep photocopies where you can scan them (for insurance providers, maybe). Not sure why you would want them in your case-- might make the contents even more attractive to thieves.
Fireproof safe / safety deposit box.
Yes, keep it in another place. Take digital photos of it, as well of the instrument and bow.
I'm just displaying it on my shelf lol I once put my another certificate in the box but it had gone moldy..
OMG people those certificates are like money. Please take a picture or scan to keep an electronic record, and then keep the original in a safety-deposit box.
There are certificates not worth having, but the good ones I keep in my parents' house away from harm's way and definitely nowhere near the articles they certify.
