A lost art-form, love tokens have been made from coins for centuries. The commoner's engagement ring, a man would scrimp and save for the best coin he could afford (typically a silver dime), sand down one side and then etch his lover's name on the blank half. Presented to his betrothed, she would wear it as jewelry or sew it to the inner lining of her bodice, close to her heart.

This particular love token was engraved on the reverse of an 1877 Seated Liberty Silver Dime. Can be worn double sided, it is 18mm in diameter and reads "Baby" in hand etched script. An exceedingly rare example, it is half of a matching set commissioned as a Victorian "push present" - a gift to a wife for the birth of their (probably first) child.

The perfect gift for any mother or soul mate whom you affectionate call "Baby," this petite charm hangs from a delicate yet durable sterling cable chain with spring ring clasp.

*This is a sterling silver cast replica of a one-of-a-kind original from 1877 - an important part of accessory history, it an early example of personalized charms and engagement jewelry for the non-noble class.
