    Default Part of my Kurland collection finally in a nice display

    Most of these items i have dug up myself in Kurland but some of them is dug up in Kurland by good friends of mine. I bought a glass display with a lamp from IKEA and it just did not look good enough. It looked incredible dull, so I decided to try to make it look better. I visited some museums to look at how they displayed their WW2 items and I found one musuem that had their iteems over small stones and it looked very nice and easy to set up. So I bought some small stones at a flower shop and tada! I think it looks much better.

    Great display! I find battlefield relics really intriguing and your method of display is excellent; I might have to take a couple of your ideas ...

    haha, unfortunaly the stones are from Sweden not Kurland! That is a pretty good idea though, if I only find **** for next expedition in Kurland i might bring back a big pack of stones instead
