All my father's items on a card. I am going to have them placed in a case, hopefully within the next month.

Very nice, M... :pdt34: I think they would look great in a frame-box with a red or black felt backing. You can find it (felt pieces) pretty cheap in fabric or arts & crafts stores usually. I have used it as a backing for some armbands and it looks really nice.
