Wheat Penny Earrings 1936 ~1948
Do you closely inspect your coins when you get change? Isn’t it fun when you get a cool old coin, like a wheat penny? I love to check out my change. I have $100 worth of Bicentennial quarters, but that’s another story. Wheat pennies were first commissioned by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1909. The artist’s name was Victor David Brenner. They were minted until 1958.
This pair feature 1936 and a 1948 penny. I hammered along the edges for a light catching effect. Sort of looks like they’ve been diamond cut. Then I dapped them for a slightly domed effect. As with all copper, these pennies will patina with time. They're quite trendy too for such old beauties, one faces the front and one the reverse
