    I have several Master Replicas collectibles and I'd like to have the plaques/plates on display with the items without permanently sticking the plates on the plaque holder. That way if I sell the item later I can offer it closer to original purchased condition. Please offer your non-permament plate suggestions.

    clear silicone adhesive works for me.

    I use a dot of clear silicone, too. Holds well, but easily removable.

    If you want an additional level of protection for the plaques, you can slip each one into a snug glycerine envelope and affix the envelopes to the display stands with silicone gel or museum wax.

    What about plain old school brush on rubber cement. That'd seem easy to remove too?

    Hadn't thought of that, but it sounds good to me. Rubber cement can usually be removed cleanly from both metal and acrylic with simple rubbing. :thumbsup

    Using artist tape would work also. It's a real low adhesive.

    If you can find it double sided that would be good.

    I was going to suggest rubber cement...That's what I'd use.
