Written for love ones at the turn of the century- love tokens were typically engraved on dimes or nickels and given to either a lover, parent or friend. These are each set in sterling silver on a 20 inch silver chain.
The pictorial coins were more rare. Popular themes were sea scapes and shorelines as sailors were often gone for long stretches of time.
