This NCO Sword case was for my brother-in-law, recently getting out after 5 years of service. The back is made of purpleheart, and the reason I used that was because he was injured while fighting in Afghanistan, and received a purple heart. The bottom matches the dress blue pants with an actual blood stripe glued on the base. Plexi glass ends are “etched” with frosted glass adhesive sheeting – you find this on amazon, it is very cheap. The sword is covered with plexi glass, top and front (not shown).
His ribbon display is on purpleheart as well, 45 degree angle and on both ends are his chevrons. Coins are some achievement coins, starting from Parris Island, 2nd Marine Division, Camp Lejeune, MP, Afghanistan Coin, and finally his Purple Heart coin.
Hope you all enjoy!
