Rare beauty! Sterling Silver Three - Cent Piece Coin Pendant.
The smallest of U.S. silver coins makes a big impression in this striking Pendant! Issued from 1851-1873, the denomination of the "new" silver three-cent piece was intended to facilitate the purchase of three-cent postage.
Here, a genuine three-cent piece takes center stage, set in a double bezel of sterling silver. The Pendant hangs from the 18" sterling silver chain, connected by five delicately woven rings.
