Show your boxed medal displays

Recommended Posts


Hey everyone, I recently purchased a nice grouping of cased medals belonging to a decorated 36th division veteran and I was trying to figure out a good way to display them as I plan to keep them for a long time.


The set Includes name-etched Silver Star, Bronze Star, And Purple Heart medals along with their ribbons, lapel pins, and coffin boxes. I am hoping to build a display to properly show all these pieces in conjunction with a photo, description, and valor citations of the soldier.


I’ve attached some schematics I’ve drawn up for use with a deep riker mount that I could make up. I’d love to see how y’all do it, mount or not, so please share, I’d love to hear some suggestions!


Xs are the medals and the cites are the citations

Very nice displays guys! Here's one I put together for my Dad. I talked him into getting his medals replaced years ago since they were all lost not long after the war. He said my grandmother ( my mom's mom ) let the kids play with them outside and that was that. :D

My humble contribution. Bought several old jewelry display boxes few years ago at an estate sale; about 12x12” or so with hinged top in solid wood. Anyway here’s one with a small grouping
