An incredible silver dollar coin pendant from the Victorian (ca1878) era! This wonderful piece is comprised of an authentic Morgan Silver Dollar, a form of currency which was produced in the United States between 1871-1921. This silver dollar is a large, substantial coin that features the face of Lady Liberty on one side, with the word "LIBERTY" in her headdress, the Latin words "E PLURIBUS UNUM" above, and the date "1878" below. An inscription on the coin reads "MEMPHIS TENN." and "NELLIE ERCK" can also be found incorporated into the face of the coin and on the opposite side is a raised set of sterling initials surrounded by an etched rose gold border. The coin has been fashioned with a loop at the top attached to a simple sterling bail, allowing it to be hung and worn on a chain. A bold and fashionable historic piece, it has a wonderful look and would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurement: The pendant hangs 1 7/8" long, has a diameter of 1 1/2" and is 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to silver or rose gold and the bail is secure and in good condition.
