    Default what i did with 9 euros, some spare pants and some tape.

    hello, I found 10 euros down the back of a chair, and i went to the hardware store and i bought two picture frames at 4.50 each.
    i go home and i get some beige pants cut them up and use them as a background. and i make a nice display for some of my medals. i left a space next to the medals so i can find a picture of someone wearing the medal .
    hope you enjoy.

    Thats a great way to spend the money, also good investment since your preserving them in a case as well.

    This reminds me I need to find a frame for a newspaper I picked up from an antique store yesterday dated June 6th 1944 with the main headline about the invasion. For 12 bucks not bad at all.

    thats not bad at all, i am sure you can pick up a frame cheap. at the place i went to i saw a frame that could fit a newspaper for 15 euros.

    Put some bubble wrap under the beige material so the medals are pressed up against the glass, that should hold them in place without using any tape (which will eventually leave marks)
