A great friend was retiring out of the U. S. Marine Corps with 22 years and I wanted to do something special for him. The box is made of purple heart, padauk, and spalted maple. Inside is the true treasure, an Iwo Jima Silver Dollar.
I was thinking that I could have went with a traditional shadow box but I wanted to do something original and unique. Hopefully, his wife will allow it to be placed on their mantle in their living room :o

Thanks for looking,
