Sorry, this item sold. Have pennyfarthingdesigns make something just for you, or try these other items:
I have found and matched a pair of 1952 farthing coins in excellent condition to create these lovely cufflinks. They would make a fabulous 60th birthday gift for anyone born in 1952.
The farthing coin was worth 1/4 old penny, so there were 960 of these to a single pound! This pair of copper coins date from 1952. The farthing coin remained legal tender in the UK until the end of 1960, since when these coins must have lain at the bottom of a drawer somewhere, until I was lucky enough to find them.
This version of the farthing is the one probably most fondly remembered in the UK, with a little Jenny Wren on the front. These cufflinks would make would make a unique gift for many specail occasions but especially a birthday gift for anyone born in 1952.
The cufflink bars are silver plated.
I have several other pairs of cufflinks available in my online store, created from variously dated vintage and antique coins. See these and more of my individual, handmade jewellery at http://www.etsy.com/shop/pennyfarthingdesigns
