A lucky pair of American "Liberty" coin earrings! Both of the smooth Victorian Silver earrings feature the figure of liberty draped in a flowing dress, clutching a liberty pole in one hand and a shield in the other.
Once flipped over, the other side of the coin is engraved with the initials W.K.B. We think these earrings would be a thoughtful gift for someone, as they were said to be lucky! They are perfect to be worn daily, and are a must have for any growing antique jewellery collection!

VERY GOOD. These American "Liberty" coin earrings are in very good condition! Our research suggests that they were originally a one dime silver coin that was polished and engraved as a gift due to the belief that they were lucky. There are some general signs of surface wear, commensurate with age, but they are outstanding considering they are over 100 years old! The solid Sterling Silver hooks have held their shape well, and you can rest assured that these earrings have many more years of wear in them!
