    Hi All,

    Well, I have finally got around to sorting out a sensible display for my medal collection. I went for the metal Bisley filing cabinets. Picked up the one shown below from Ebay last week for a decent price and then have cut some 10mm deep foam insets, which have come out nicely.

    This evening I have filled the first five drawers with some of my groups and Victorian singles. It is good to get these out of their Jiffy bags and on display. It has been very exciting and quite a satisfying experience. It has made me tidy up the paperwork side of things too, all now digitally backed up and filed on Excel.

    And checked that your up-dated home insurance covers them ?

    Hi Ron,

    Good point. I have my collection insured separately, but with the acknowledgement of my household provider. This was my dilemma, having my collection squirrelled away in the loft and never really seeing them, or displaying them in an active and accessible way. :)

    Great stuff, post some picies of a couple of drawers open and filled so we can see what they look like.
