A Word About Sizing

In my listings I will refer to a specimen as Micro; Thumbnail; Miniature; or Cabinet.  What do these labels mean?

Micro-Mount—Very small, usually needs magnification to appreciate.  Notated with MM in title.


Thumbnail—will fit in a space 1 ¼” x 1 ¼” x 1 ¼”.  Noted with TN in the title.


Miniature—bigger than a Thumbnail and will fit in a space 2 ½” x 2 ½”  x 2 ½”


Cabinet—Larger than Miniature (if under 3 inches or so I call it a Small Cabinet)
