Coin Packaging

Hello. This may be a very basic question, but I thought I should ask rather than make a mistake.

I recently purchased some proof-like coins and they came in a sealed thin plastic pouch. Does it harm or lessen the value if it's removed from that pouch and placed directly in a coin flip? Should I leave it in the thin plastic pouch?

Thanks for your time in answering this beginners question.

    Were they sealed on all 4 sides?

    @Topher1977 That might be original mint packaging and is often desirable that the coin remain sealed inside that item. Or is it a sealed plastic baggie that was repackaged by a retailer other than the US mint. Give us a pic. Peace Roy

    If it is a proof and you re-package it into a 2x2 flip, wear gloves.
