What is the base material under the lacquer coating? Aluminum? Glass? Other? This makes a big difference with respect to shipping.

Where I am currently working about 110 lacquer discs are going to be most likely shipped to (as opposed to picked up by) a vendor for digitization. About 2 dozen of them are flaking, cracking, delaminating.
We do plan to ask the vendor for shipping advice, and I have received some info / advice from someone else about their experience. However, I am looking for additional experience and advice (to have as many ideas as possible to make a decision) while I wait to hear what vendor has been selected to conserve and digitize these records. Just trying to get some details, best advice, experience, etc compiled regarding shipping lacquer discs safely.
