It’s been a while since I’ve done a #nfssaturday post and I’m really going to try to be better about posting more regularly this year 🤞.
The first piece from my personal collection for 2019 is this coin pendant. It is 1 of 2 Spanish Reals Andy found at the July 2018 Brimfield show (along with a 75 piece love token collection). He gave one to me and one to his father, Ray, as partial payment for helping us with the show. I know certain coin collectors will balk at the fact that there is a hole in it and let me state for the record that we did not put it there, but I’m glad it came to me this way. We added a bail and it’s a piece I wear almost everyday on a super long chain so that I can layer it if I’m in the mood. I love the age and size of it.
The coin is solid silver, minted in 1805 (214 years ago) and the Latin inscription reads "Charles IV, By the Grace of God".
In addition to being a staple of my personal collection, this gift sparked an interest in coins as adornments and inspired the third installment of The Rusted Anchor Revival Collection which will be dropping later today. So stay tuned...
