I have 2 grave markers that were found in a burn pit near St. Avold, France military cemetery.

What is the best way to preserve the makers? Would it be possible to frame and display them?

 

Thanks

What are they made of? Size? Are they stable or falling apart?

Can you post pics?

Ah, so the tags off the wooden markers.  Somebody on this forum recently sold a couple of dozen of them.  So, no reason you can't frame/display them.  No doubt one of our members here ought to be able to tell you how to preserve them before you frame them.

Thanks
