Default Flip style pen display box

I make bolt action style pens using deer antler as the body of the pen and wanted a nice display box to showcase them, and this is what I came up with. The box goes from a closed storage box to an open display box and I engraved a deer head into it, filled with coffee grounds, soaked with CA glue, sanded smooth. Wasn't sure if I could get the head small enough to fit on the box, but came out really nice. The box is roughly 2 3/4" wide and 6 1/2" long. Wood is Cherry with Deft finish.
