Antique Gun Metal Double Coin Holder, Double Sovereign Holder, Gunmetal:
Up for your consideration:
Very nice antique double sovereign coin holder, made with "REAL GUN METAL" as it is marked on the inside. I've looked for other marks to identify this further but do not see any. Thisholder itselfmeasures 2" in length, about 2 1/2" with the ring extended. It opens like a watch fob, you push on the button and it unlatches. I believe the inside coin holders are probably brass, both work by spring mechanism and both work perfectly. The back is covered by a very deep darkcolored purple velvet. It is loose in one spot and I have not tried to re-glue this.
This is a usedantique item and has wear associated with its age and usage. The outside has wear marks in the metal; scuffs and scratches and color loss. I do not see any dents. The inside also shows wear to the coin holders, the metal, and the velvet. The closure works well as do the springs in the coin holders. All in all this is a very nice piece. Please look at all of my photos and ask should you have any additional questions.
This will ship USPS priority mail in the U.S.
Thanks for looking.
