Collection at a Glance

2007 NSS Convention Display

I displayed 1039 devices from my collection at the 2007 NSS Convention. I mounted the collection before taking it to convention, instead of trying to mount everything at convention as I had for the 2000 NSS Convention display. This was the first time that I framed the display boards and had separate strips for identification tags. To limit the number of boards to 30, I increased the size of most boards to 4 feet square.
