Glass Top Display Box for 5 Coins
The Guardhouse 1800 style box features ornate, hand crafted decorative elements and is constructed of real wood, with a rich mahagany rubbed finish. The inside of the box features a dark cloth or foam interior framed with a contrasting white collar. A sturdy glass top lid held in place with bright silver colored hinges makes this box ideal for displaying your coins.
This box has five Small sized openings, or slots. Small slots fit all Small sized Guardhouse or Air Tite Small sized coin capsules. Small capsules accommodate a range of coin sizes in direct fit holders, including Cents, Nickels, Dimes, Quarters, Small Dollars, 1/10 and 1/4 oz American Gold Eagles. For example, this box is perfect for displaying five State or National Park quarters.
Choose The Right Display Box for Your Coins
Guardhouse boxes are designed to work with coin capsules.
Each Guardhouse display box has one or more slots, which fit a SMALL( S ), MEDIUM( M ), LARGE( L ), or EXTRA LARGE( XL ) coin capsule. The sizes - S, M, L, and XL - refer both to the capsule size and the corresponding slot size in the box. Make sure to match the box slot size with the coin capsule size.
For example, a box with a ( 4S, M ) designation has five slots, four for a SMALL size ( 4S ) coin capsule and one for a MEDIUM sized ( M ) coin capsule.
When selecting a capsule to house your coin, select either a Direct Fit or a Ring Fit Coin Capsule. We recommend Direct Fit capsules for standard U.S. coin denominations, and Ring Fit capsules for everything else. Ring fit capsules require you to know the diameter of your coin in millimeters.
