Vintage Coin Cufflinks

Description

Wear a bit of history with this handsome set of vintage Mercury dime cufflinks.  They should have been called Winged Liberty dimes, for that was the image intended, but people were confused by the winged headpiece, which they thought belonged to the Roman messenger god.  Hence the name "Mercury dime."  The coins were struck by the U.S. Mint from 1916-1945 and make for an unusual, evocative accessory.  Handmade in NYC
