1865 Three-Cent Nickel Necklace with Silver Chain and Bezel
The Three-Cent Nickel is the coin that started my appreciation of old, collectible coins and, I suppose, coin jewelry. I was in a client's home and they had one displayed on their mantel. Like most people, I had never seen one before. Now, with this necklace, you get a beautiful necklace, a historical artifact, and a conversation piece all rolled up in one. When you're not wearing it display it on the mantel or coffee table.
Three-Cent pieces were minted because the public was hoarding the silver three cent (trimes) coins. Three-Cent Nickels were minted from 1865 to 1889. They are comprised of .750 copper and .250 nickel. All of these coins were minted in Philadelphia.
This necklace comes with an 18 inch, sterling silver chain and a sterling silver bezel. I'll ship it in a cute little box ready to be gifted. The coin is in excellent shape. Don't be surprised if this piece of jewelry appreciates in value over time.
