I haven't seen the Polaroid mounts but I use the Gepe and Wess slide mounts
for my treasured slides and Pakon for the other 300,000 that are in there
for stock use :-)     Pakons are available from B&H for $240 for 10,000
mounts.   At 2.4 cents each, I haven't found any cheaper.  I'm careful to
use cotton gloves and the mounter holds the slides open enough that they
don't scratch.  If I were a better editor, I could probably buy more
expensive slide mounts, but I tend to keep everything unless it's out of focus.
