A container provided by the issuing authority for the storage and transportation of jewels and badges. The case is meant to compliment the jewel and accompanies it during presentation. A typical case is attractive and well constructed and consists of a lid hinged to a bottom compartment, a button type tension catch to open and close the lid, and interior satin lining. The exterior of the case has a covering of Leatherette or some other texture, and the top of the lid is often stamped with the name of the manufacturer. A synonymous term is presentation case.
