    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    Thank you Wildcat1750! The display cases I donated last year contained non-metal items such as high-quality flint. While many adults understand the significance flint had to Native Americans and pioneers alike, elementary school children need to be taught. It helps when there is an example for them to look at in person.

    Kind of you and nice display. Can't do that in Canada you get in trouble just because you have picked them up... A friend tried it .he said no more it"s a lot of trouble . it's a shame.

    I'm actually developing an educational display for our museum,
    based around one token I found,
    that the design has changed several times.
    It is interesting how you got all the artifacts to hold under the glass.
    Good idea!

    montcalm, that is a shame. Maybe show them this thread and re-consider. After all it is their loss.

    eye, good luck on designing your display. Usually I design the layout using Microsoft Powerpoint, which makes it easy to change things around until it meets my and the Museum Curator's approval. To get the artifacts to hold under the glass, I use one of two methods. For thin artifacts like tokens and coins, I enclose them in a 2" by 2" coin holder then glue it to the layout. For thicker artifacts, I use an exacto knife to carefully cut out the foam then insert the artifact. If necessary I secure them in place with some hobby glue, because usually the display cases are displayed vertically or on a slant.

    TimberCrack, thanks for the compliment! Once the 10.5" x 16.5" layout is finalized in Microsoft Powerpoint, I save it as a jpeg file (i.e. see attached), and send it to a local print shop who prints it and attaches it to a firm board. I then glue the firm board to the display case foam. To accommodate thicker artifacts, I have them cut out holes indicated by the solid purple shapes. If the display case contains artifacts from only one property, the matrix in the center is replaced by a picture of the home.

    You are a smart man. First, you are contributing something cool back to society for those that are interested. Second, I bet this doesn’t hurt your standing with the historical society and maybe gives you in’s and access to properties you couldn’t get otherwise? Nicely done and good thinking!
