Topic tags/keywords: modern traditional question

Any of ya’ll have any plans for a challenge coin display you’d be willing to share, or know of any floating around on the www. A coworker has asked me to build one for him, and I have no doggone clue on how to give him his money’s worth. He’s given me pictures but no dimensions. Any Help will be appreciated.

Appears to be a bunch in all sorts of shapes and sizes depending on the ‘theme’ of the coins…
As always, google is your friend :)

PS: It might be helpful if you share the pictures he gave you so people know what you are looking for.

So here is what I remember from when I made two of these before Christmas, the date stamp on the pictures I took before wrapping them was 10:16PM on December 24th…nothing like last minute :-). The average coin (and I say average because they can very in shape and size, not all coins are round) is 1-3/4” in diameter and 1/8” thick. I made my slot on the bottom shelf of one of the cases a little thicker in case he had thicker coins. The overall case dimensions were patterned after this one http://www.medalsofamerica.com/Item--i-CHW2B so they were 15” x 11-1/2” x 2-1/4”

Here are a couple of pictures from the one I made, hopefully this helps.
