The final trick that held them in place, without using glue, was using a piece of foam backed sand paper upside down, cut to the size of the passpartout and covered in felt, this then pushed through the passpartout enough to hold the coins against the glass.
All the finds were made in Switzerland but represent a mix of French, Italian and Swiss coins.
The frame is much smaller than some of the English ones I have seen, but then again so are the fields here!!
I put the following label on the back because it didn't look pretty on the front!
