Yes it's always a risk. In those cases you need to cover the labels quickly. It will avoid the disaster. I use my oun breath to keep the paper's humidity before wrap it. It will help to let the label on place and avoid it's breaking.
When unwrapping at home put always the label upside.
Unfortunately paper move easily and may occur miss a little.
The bottle I show next was more than a hundred years buried

That's great that you've devised a system for preserving the labels! I know that bottles with labels are often found somewhat intact on Canada's west coast as well, but the diggers generally don't put that much effort into preserving them.

I red somewhere that necessity is the mother of invention. When I find a label like this it's great but a problem too.
