Another version of my “Two-Flags” shadow box design, this one with the three display sections all in a straight line across the back of the unit, instead of angled out like they are in the original version. Also, the outer display cases are separated from the center display by a single 3/4” partition instead of each section being its own “box” like in the original. The bottom and middle horizontal platform are simple rectangles instead of having angles on the ends to coincide with the angles of the display cases. This model also includes LED lights and a rear access door to allow entry into the lower display area. And like the original, this model features dual American flags (one star field and one strip field) and inlaid 1 3/4” challenge coins on each end of the front viewing area. Overall dimensions are: 34” (W) x 30” (H) x 11” (D).

Thanks. It cost me about $300 to build, and I sold it for $500.

Very unique! Definitely a lot of shadow boxes out there, but this one will definitely stand out. Great job!

As a disabled Vet I can greatly appreciate this one Joe. Tremendous work. Especially like the lower display area for Challenge Coins. Much respect!

Looks great! I’d like a quote on a similar box but without the flag portion at the top (or maybe a coin holder at the top). I am in the Air Force and will retire early next year. if you’re interested, please message me back. Thank you.
