Is it OK to put a note in a hard plastic holder (ie. clear rigid plastic with frame that snaps note in place between two clear plastic windows)

Sure - they look good that way...

No - it's just not right!

Let me know what you think.  I don't see many like this on Ebay, but you see a few around.

I like the hard holders for special individual notes and for sequences.

Although the holders may look nice I would be very concerned that by
Pressing or screwing the holder together tightly it is pressing the note which is not a good thing
I know of hard plastic holders where the bills sit loosely but won’t fall out but I have seen those that when screwed hold the bill in place tightly
Would that not flatten the embossing

-I agree.  They look really nice (BTW). No doubt about it. But I would be concerned about whether they damage the notes via the pressing or by the quality of plastic (PVC?). Then there's light damage.  They're very nice sets "arjay" but I would want to put them in a dark place provided you know the plastic is PVC free (or at least put them in proper PVC-free sleeves before putting them in those big rigid holders).

Thank you Very Senior Members for you input. I have checked the notes and they do not seem to have suffered at all. Out of an abundance of caution, however, I have removed them from the hard plastic holders and placed them in safe holders. While they did look nice in their former homes, I am the only one who sees them. And since I will probably dispose of them sooner rather than later, due to my age and the lack of family members' interest, any possible damage would hurt the prices.
