Indian Head Penny Necklace 1905

Regular price $25.00

I love old coins. I think it’s because both my Mom and Dad saved old and unique coins from around the world.  My Dad traveled the world I have an amazing collection.  This awesome necklace is made from a vintage 1905 US Indian Head copper penny. That’s over a century of history!

Indian head pennies were designed by James Barton Longacre in 1859. They were in circulation until 1909, when the Wheat Penny debuted.

I hammered and slightly domed the pennies to make these unique earrings.  They have a lovely copper patina. Wear some history!
