These are made up in the usual manner with grooved-in plywood bottoms which are velvet-lined. Separate recesses for each coin are bored with a suitable expansion bit, and a smaller hole bored through the centre to allow the finger-tip to be inserted from underneath to tip the coin out of its recess (244:8). If the recess is shallow the velvet will usually stretch sufficiently to fit the depression, with the centre hole trimmed out with a sharp knife after the glue has set. The velvet can be laid with shoemakers' paste or other suitable adhesive as described in Table lining, Chapter 33, taking care to use only a minimum of glue and allowing it to set partially before the velvet is smoothed down. Cabinets for precious coins are normally provided with locking doors or hinged cover fillets at each side which can be locked in position (244:13).
