My latest display case at the recent 2019 Cincinnati show.

This year's theme was color so I displayed a potpourri of colorful examples from all over. Most of the examples were of common, but colorful minerals in nice cabinet size specimens.

There was a Brazilian amethyst, Moroccan example, and a Madagascar celestine. Also, two examples each from Argentina, and Mexico.
From the U.S. there were examples from Utah, Missouri, Idaho, and 4 from Indiana. The 4 Indiana examples were all self collected. BOB

Tobi, Thank you for your kind comments.

You know that I have had display cases at shows for nearly 20 years now. In addition, some of my specimens have been displayed at shows I did not attend. Anyway, over the last 10 years or so my display cases have gotten some interesting comments and feed back from various groups of show attendees. Types of attendees at the various shows really does differ so the show goers have differing perspectives about the various displays. I have noted this and may start a new thread on types of displays meant for different types of shows.

Anyone else on this forum display regularly and get any feedback from show goers?? BOB

Hi Bob, I have never displayed at a show, only once in a museum. But as a collector who is interested in the "art" of displaying, I would appreciate such a thread! :-)
