Wheat Penny Earrings 1955 ~ 1956
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. 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 features a 1955 and a 1956 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.
- Pennies measure ¾” diameter
- Hang 1 ¼ ” from handcrafted Sterling Silver ear wires
