I didn't think I could even get a pic of this thing due to glare
from the glass, or coin itself... But it turned out okay.
Good enough that you get the idea.
When the Vietnam coin first came out, I ordered it from the mint.
When it came in, I mounted it in a shadow box. If I remember right,
I used velcro stuck to the back of the boxes. I bought the coin for
my Dad, and this just seemed like a nice way to present it. He
wasn't a coin collector at all. This was more like a gift like you
would give a military man a plaque or something. He hung it on his
bedroom wall with his many other military presentations.
Anyway, he recently passed, and I have his coin now. I thought
I might as well share what you can do with any relevant commem to
present as a gift. The shadow box seems to be oak, and is lined with
velvet/velour (don't know the difference). Sorry the glass is a bit
smeared/fuzzy. I didn't have any glass cleaner.
