How To Store And Display Awards.

I know it may sound odd, but I realy want to know how you keep the orders and medals. I keep the medals in display trays, with clear plastic on the upper side and red velvet inside. The screw-back orders, however, don'fit in the case...

So, any pics will be welcomed!

How to display Soviet awards

Well, I've been wondering how to do this for some time. Here is what I did last weekend, that worked quite well.

Firstly I went down to the hobbies and craft shop and bought a picture frame, some glass, strong stiff card about the size of the frame and enough red felt to cover the card.

I then cut out the card to fit over the back of the frame, but leaving around an inch at each side. I then marked where the medals would go and cut a square hole for each medal, about where the medal pin would go. I cut the card with a stanley knife, to cut each hole.

I then got some 3M photo mount spay on glue and sprayed the card in order to stick the felt to the card. I also used to Aradite glue to stick the glass to the inside of the frame, and left everything to dry.

Once dry, I mounted the pins on the medal through the felt, using the holes cut in the card. I then fixed the card, with all the medal to the frame using drawing pins (so I could remove it if I ever wanted to).

I added some hooks and a bit of string and hung it on the wall, only to find the medals then hung out, so I added a couple of hooks to the bottom of the frame, so the picture frame sat out from the wall at the top AND the bottom.

Well, that was my first attempt. I think it looks ok. I'll have a go at mounting some more this weekend.

Kind Regards,
Shane Cook.

Shane,

Very nice! We have very similar ways of displaying awards.

Tal,

Thanks for your comments. Yes, I actually have some form of cabinet, that was modified in order to fit the board with the red velvet and awards on it. It's pretty big. I'll take pictures when I'm home.

I second that! nice display jimfindlay!

Mahdi, looks like you've filled in a couple spaces since the last time you showed me your display..looking good!

Myslef, I really don't keep much on display, I keep most of my collection in cotton lined display boxes. I keep all paperwork in Mylar-D sleeves ( free of chemicals ) and the same for order books. I keep all medals in plastic sleeves so I can handle them and not worry about touching the medal. Not very elegant..I'm hoping to do something about that soon!

Somebody here once said when his wife asked how much it cost he'd say 10 dollars each.

There are different ways to deal with wives.
If my wife asks me "How much?", usualy I say: "Don't ask,- if you know less, you would live longer"
Also, with each purchase of the award, you buy flowers for your wife. Sometimes it works.
If you buy something very... very expensive - just devide the price in 10 or more.
