WE ARE PROUD TO OFFER A RARE MUSEUM QUALITY SILVER COIN CHOKER AFGHANI/WESTERN PAKISTANI TWO ANNAS COIN CHOKER AT LEAST 94 YEARS OLD.

THIS ITEM HAS BEEN TESTED AND IS A HIGH GRADE “SILVER” AND A ONE OF A KIND HEIRLOOM WITH RARE GENUINE SILVER TWO ANNA COINS FROM THE 19TH CENTURY WITH GLASS CARBOCHONS. THIS EXQUISITE BEAUTY IS BEING OFFERED FOR ITS INTRINSIC CULTURAL VALUE

COINS ARE 91.7% SILVER, actual weight is 0.045 troy ounces each, and silver weight is 0.041 troy ounces each. There are Twenty Three Rare Genuine Two Annas Silver Coins dangling at the end of this necklace: 12 Edward VII King and Emperor Coins dated from 1903-1910; 8 King George V King and Emperor Coins from 1912-1917; there are three Queen Victoria Empress Coins dated 1875, 1886 and 1898. There are a total of 39 dangling chains with various complex charms and dangles and coins per pictures. Length: Approx: 10.5" Hanging Length 4.5" (including band). Total Weight of Choker of this very rare breathtaking choker is a whopping 14.165 oz. Condition: Excellent Museum Quality

This antique nomadic Afghani/ Western Pakistani heirloom (I'm basing this on current political borders) was probably worn by a high ranking bride and is so beautiful, it is fit for a queen. This one of a kind masterpiece is hand forged in high quality silver. The Rare and costly Genuine Silver Two Annas coins date from 1875 through 1917 and are British Indian. These 91.7% silver coins probably made their way to Afghanistan through trade. The British had a long history of unsuccessfully trying to colonize Afghanistan ; they were always met with fierce resistance. Notice the little faceted studs on the main choker part: these could be influenced by the European fashion of cut steel studs on everything from shoe buckles to buttons. It does have some Indian influences with the dangles, but the glass, silver mesh choker body, and ends are very Afghani. This choker was executed in genuine silver (probably about 800 grade as most ethnic silver is). Most pieces in this style are white (base) metal. I will admit that, since this is an older piece, there is a chance that this is a North Western Indian (based on British Empire historical boundaries) piece and that the style was later mimicked by the Afghanis with great precision. Most people would look at it and think Afghani, so it may be best to list it that way. Heavy Silver 1.5" band with chains hanging down with old and rare Two Anna coins at ends. Foil backed glass in pink, green and blue. Some glass pieces are now chipped due to age. (See pictures. Pictures are part of description)

I have always had a curious nature about humanity’s precedent and have spent most of my life from early childhood into adulthood searching out the treasures and secrets of our past; collecting them; researching them; and on occasion writing about them.When circumstances dictate, I must then pass on my treasures, knowledge, and collections to present generations; not for financial remuneration, but rather to spread our ancestral legacy to our progeny, so that the labors and riches of the past are not lost to the annals of changing times; but continue to future generations.
