I had ben reading a lot about "Love Tokens" which are designs, names, initials or monograms engraved in one or both sides of a coin where the face or faces have been polished smooth. These date back hundreds of years and are a unique little piece of the engravers art anyone can afford. They were often worn as pendants or charms on the neck or wrist. I cut this one as an example of what can be done to give everyone an idea of the possibilities. This one was made from a well worn Buffalo Nickel where I polished off the Indian Head and cut the border and monogram. Anyone interested in more information can check this one out on Etsy by clicking here. Thanks for looking and stay tuned for a lot of paintings as I am getting ready for a Gallery show and am working on a lot of new work.
