    Default How do you show your medals.

    Gents, sorry to intrude here, but I think it the best place to create a thread on ways we, the members choose to display our medal/award collections, do we show or hide away ? I know collectors who store them in cases or display cabinets and even boxes hidden away in the attic ! however I show mine in a model car display cabinet, where individual medals/awards and bars are displayed on perspex jewellery stands, these are available commercially on E-Bay for little money, with a little tweaking they can be used to good effect, see here....
    Heres a link to the company who supply the stands... set of 3 clear stands for matching sets earings/chains | eBay UK

    Prost ! Steve.

    Good thread and it reminds me that I need to take pictures which I'll add later.
    Unfortunately I won't be able to start a full display as I'll be relocating soon. It's
    a shame concidering this house was built around 1931 and has some interesting
    rooms that would be ideal for relics.

    Back to the subject. I've been picking up items at resale shops like old frames, boxes
    and even a old jewelery box which I find very useful for showing things like medalions
    and items that are difficult to keep in a vertical position. There is also room for storing
    some pictures or documents.

    When I get to my new location I'll try to figure a way to display larger items like helmets,
    etc.

    This is one of the boxes that has my medals, photo albums and small things.
    I think it was an old cigar box and it gives it a nice old fealing.
