That is a great display. It shows the value of collecting more than just a medal. I hope that you will show us more of this kind in the future.

Regards

Pictures and artefacts add so much to a medal. Nice to see them kept together in a frame - very professional.

Yes I do all my own framing otherwise it would cost a fortune...... I find most of my frames at Garage Sales (Same as Car Boot Sales for our English friends) and at flea markets...... I know what I want to frame and have a general layout in my mind and then go looking for a frame...... I try to keep the frame as simple as possible not to take away from the contents........

Mike

No frame for this one yet......

Fantastic!

My only negative comment would be those modern ribbons (as on the star) are not nice at all.

Why, oh why, can they not make proper ribbon for the stars!

Hi Mike,

I don't like to just say, "nice job", but nice job.

You've taken some great groupings and made them much better, not everyone can do that.

Regards (with no small degree of envy for your skills) :love: ,

Brian

Hi Chris......

I agree with you about the modern ribbons...... I wish that I could get a large amount of original ribbons, at a cost that would not break the bank.......

I have a number of lengths of original but I have saved them for family mountings......
