Title Indian 1916 silver coin mounted as a charm for bracelet
Nationality British Empire
Period 1916
Sold

This charm measures barely 3/4 inch across. It is in the shape of the Great War service cap. The mount is copper or brass with a gilt finish. Like the sweetheart brooches of the same era, this was undoubtedly made with T. Atkins' girl in mind.The 3-anna coin was the lowest value silver coin of India in the early 20th century.

The gilt has worn on the surround of the coin itself, but it is otherwise in quite good condition for its age.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
