Project Information

This is multi-level challenge coin rack I made for a friend of mine currently stationed in Germany. The emblem in the top is called the Mustang emblem which represents someone who began their Naval career as an enlisted person and worked their way into the officer ranks. The logo was cut with my CNC machine. The project is made from Walnut and Maple and finished with clear lacquer. Not shown in the picture is a Lazy Susan that I installed on the bottom so you can spin the coin rack around to view the coins on all sides. This design will hold approximately 80 standard challenge coins.

First of all I love challenge coins. I have a few. Second you design is really cool. Is your friend the equivalent of a master Sargent? I'm not sure what rank he is. Nice thing you made for him/her?

My friend is a Lieutenant which is an O3. Mustang is a military slang term used in the United States Armed Forces to refer to a commissioned officer who began his or her career as an enlisted service member prior to commissioning. The emblem I cut on the coin rack does not indicate rank in this case, it is the generic Mustang insignia.
