Since this is a club trophy framing it is always a good option if you want to display it. This belt has been stitched to a conservation mount and box framed. Conservation mounting means the board that the object is attached to is acid free and will not do any damage the item. What happens with all frames is that condensation or moisture does build up behind the glass and potentially overtime the moisture and the acid combined can tarnish the object. Conservation mounting is the most expensive acid-free board you can buy and it is washed using stream water. The company that make it have their mill beside a stream and the fresh water comes in, is used to wash the mount board, and goes out again.
