A symbol of America's golden past, this is an original pair of $2 1/2 Dollar Liberty Head Quarter Eagle coins, mounted with American original Three Cent silver Type 2 coins made into cufflinks or collar buttons. Each finely cast gold piece depicts Miss Liberty, hair in bun and head circled by stars. One coin dated 1853 and the other 1854. These coins were inspired by the 1849 California "Gold Rush". Although the mounting covers the back, the eagle is visible. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, $2 1/2 DOLLAR can easily be read. Evidently there was a striking problem at the time and the backs are worn. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA can be read around periphery of one coin, the center having a national shield within a six point star is barely visable. Size: 3/4 in. diameter. Weight: 10 grams Condition is excellent
