  7. Hmm.., Its a very interesting coin. I've never seen one like it before.
  8. They are commonly used for jewelry and I used to make jewelry :pity:
  9. Yeah, This is was made to be strung as a necklace, Apparently. Never seen that before. Does it lose its value if its turned into an accesorie?
  10. Yeah. It doesn't have much value to begin with. A lot of the coins that don't have value today are used for necklaces/pendants for the "boho" look. It was more popular in the 90's and early 2000's though. I don't see many people using or selling coins for jewelry these days.
  11. Here is an example:

    This look was kind of taken from the Middle East/Indian women. A lot of times coins were used as charms by belly dancers too.
