The Best Arrowhead Display Case For Your Collection: It’s Not Just Another Shadow Box
There’s nothing more frustrating than being the proud owner of a beautiful collection of Indian arrowheads and not being able to proudly show them off. And what’s even worse…if you can’t remember where you put some of your arrowheads. Now that’s the ultimate frustration!
The good news is, getting your hands on a high quality display cases might be much easier than you thought. And you don’t have to ask a neighbor or a friend to build it for you.
In this post, I’m going to show you some of the best display cases for arrowheads and other ancient Indian relics that you can get your hands on to proudly display those arrowheads, without stacking the cases so no one can see them!
What To Look For In A Good Arrowhead Display Case
Not all arrowhead shadow boxes or display cases are made equal. I’ve seen some that are so bad I wouldn’t spend a penny on them. While other cases have been such high quality, I wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to afford it!
So here are a few things to keep an eye out when looking for a good quality arrowhead display case to show off your collection.
A Snug Fit
Make sure that the display case or shadow box that you buy securely holds your arrowhead points. There’s nothing more aggravating than positioning all of your points exactly how you want them, close the cover, then have them slide all over the place once you stand the display case up.
For a tip on how to prevent arrowheads points from moving in the display case, read through the tips section in this post.
Believe it or not, but there are some manufacturers out there that sell display cases for your arrowheads without ever knowing how an arrowhead even fits in the case.
Make sure you buy a display case that has a high quality and thick foam backing. If the foam is too thin, the arrowheads, or other relics, won’t stay in place.
Also, if the foam backing in the display case is too thin, it offers less protection for your points in the even the display case falls.
Integrated Stand/ Hanger
Everyone likes to display their artifact finds in different ways. So make sure that the case you buy has the ability to be propped up, or stand up on a flat surface, or able to be hung on the wall.
To check for this, simply look on the back of the shadow box or display case. To stand, it should have something that looks similar to the back of a picture frame.
To be able to hang the case on the wall, the box or case should have some sort of bracket built onto the back. The best ones will give you the option to use as a wall mount arrowhead case or to be stood on a flat surface.

Below is a review and look into some of the best quality display cases and shadow boxes to proudly display your arrowhead and artifact collections.
This display case was designed for one thing…to display arrowheads. The soft foam backing is the perfect size to gently press against the arrowheads against the glass and hold them in place. You also have the option of choosing between a green or black matted background to create the perfect display for your arrowhead collection.
What I like about this arrowhead case is that it’s made out of solid beechwood and is sanded multiple times to give it a very nice, smooth finish.
This case also comes with metal brackets on the back that allow it to be wall mountable.
