PostSubject: Displaying Finds   9/5/2010, 11:20 pm

I started relice hunting back in '97 which only lasted about a year, due to a growing family and a new job etc. I only found a few bullets and some frags during that time not much and they pretty much sat in a riker case and the frags sat on the book case.

Flash forward to spring of '08 and I get the bug again. Got invited to a hunt that I won't mention, but found my first button and a bullet puller. I met some good local folks because of the hunt and started hunting with them. Then I get invited to DIV. My whole prespective of relic hunting changed.

Now my collection is growing and I pondering how everyone shows or stores their finds etc.

I've typically set up seperate riker cases for each of the invitational hunts and have few display cases for local finds. Each case is marked for the invitational hunts and I've tried to keep local finds grouped together for the find locationl. I did get a gem jar case for my buttons as I really don't like them in a riker case. So maybe tomorrow I'll go ahead and put the buttons in and mark the bottoms with find locations etc.

What do you guys do with say your collection of fired bullets, button backs, square nails etc. Do you just toss them in a jar or junk some that stuff?
