    Default Party pins display case

    Here's how I house my party pins. The box is a regular 'Volterra' type from Leuchtturm that is available here: Presentation Case VOLTERRA TRIO de Luxe, each for 8 US-SLABS - Lighthouse

    The coin slab inserts have been removed and replaced by two layers of firm foam that was cut to fit the frame as well as the desired shapes of the pins. First layer was cut to the shape of the pin while the second one to the shape of its hardware, making sure the pins are resting on their entire versos. It was then covered with velvet fabric. The cutouts allowed for a recessed spots in which the pins are fitting snugly without much movement. It also helps to eliminate contact with top of the badges. Additionally the bottom of the two top drawers is also covered with velvet to help protect the bottom placed pins as well.
    Initially I was toying with the idea of allowing room in the bottom drawer for a silica gel packet but as moisture does not seem to be a problem where I live, I decided to pass.

    cheers

    Looks good but unless the case is open, the contents are hidden?

    You're going to need a lot of tunics to display every maker and variant!

    Glenn,

    Your display case looks excellent. First class job on that.

    That would be correct. I had to face the reality of possible loss, if contents were easily accessible.
    Picture below shows my previous display- regular shadow frame with pins assigned by region.

    cheers

    Those pins that do not differ in the way of their geographical lineage were organized by date and/or event they represent. Same type frames were used although in different sizes.

    Here's another small display that kept me busy one boring afternoon. Small piece of cherry wood, stained ebony and finished in low sheen. The piece is cut to represent outline of Germany's borders at the time. The piece was drilled from the back to accommodate the hardware of the pins so that they can sit flush against the flat surface.

    cheers

    Here's another display. This one was put together based on a genre. In this case- Industrial awards. Similar idea as previous ones although this one slightly deeper frame to accommodate the more three dimensional pins. Same mounting method.

    cheers
