    "Four Red Cases on Beige".............I'm dyin'!!! Gotta put that out as a SLICS display. I was one of the judges this year...you'll have my vote!
    "Cartridges As Art". I'm sure you can work that into an educational theme.

    So, it's done. Can't afford a fancy brass nameplate(spent it all on dummy bullets), so I went with magic marker.
    Bidding is now open.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    PROGRESS REPORT:
    Even after that last bit of "Four Red Cases..." shenanigans, the gist of this venture still has to continue. Without a definitive design. This progress includes rubbing each round with Johnsons Paste Wax. Literally polishing each and every one. Very hands-on. The idea with that is to delay/deter tarnishing. Did it in the Navy to save work. Hopefully will last even longer on untouched specimens. Going as far as handling them with conservator's gloves after the waxing. It may all be for naught, but I tried. Besides the glue idea, I'm considering wiring them to the board. That's gonna be a chore. We'll see.
