SHOW US WHERE YOU KEEP / STORAGE YOUR MEDALS.


Recommended Posts

If anyone saw my collection and wanted to rob me they would probably write me a cheque out of pity and leave. 😔

Seriously there is little sense in posting any photos of where I store my collection as the medals are all in shallow drawer units that I build in my shop. I counted the drawers once and there was over 300 of them. What the Hell were you thinking; my wife often asks.

Regards

Brian

THE MEANING OF THIS TOPIC

The point is I want to see the way you keep them in frames, drawers, trays, cases, boxes, etc.

i not intend to ask you to show me the BANK VAULT or any other HIGH SECURITY PLACE.

I am very sorry if you understand like this.

I think that most of us posting replies, tried to put some humour, nothing to feel sorry about!

your question was an interesting one, in its true meaning.

In my case, I've always preserved my collection in velvet lined drawers so, protected from sunlight fading ribbons and easy to be examined witout opening boxes or frames.

Now, sorry to say, due to the difficult times we're all living through, I've decided to keep everything in the bank, after a thorough inventory and photography of all my pieces.

As soon as will have the time, I will prepare a photobook of my collection.

All the best,

Well packed in tissue paper and stored in a bank vault...

Dear Elmar, this is a problem I usually encounter and typically the solution is either very expensive still being developed. I currently have over 800 medals, pins and other medallic art objects and I struggle with this because I end up considering the map drawers that, although very nice, can be pricey and not to mention the space they take. I have seen some cheaper models at $130-$150 but cheap wood and usually is delivered with corners torn.

The option being developed is an idea I am currently working on with my business partner to basically create custom made cases for each medal, but we are still in early development phase.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
