A customer brought in a Marine Corps uniform(wool) from the WW I era. Jacket, pants and cap (or cover if you prefer). I have 3 questions: Is there some protocol as to how the uniform should be presented in the frame? The brim of the cap needs cleaning and it appears to be leather - any recommendations there? Lastly, I suggested she have it dry cleaned to prevent moth damage(a little is showing already) but she does not want to do it so what about placing moth balls within the uniform or is there some alternative? I'd also welcome any suggestions as to ways of mounting this. She wants the pants inside the jacket - that is, not showing.
