isingbass store Eloi Pernet Folding Manicure 1837 Silver 5 FrancsA 5 Franc silver coin of Louis Philippe I has been divided in two and fitted with sprung stainless steel tools and rejoined to make a folding coin knife. Eloi Pernet is the most famous name and this is one of theirs.This has been a working and well used model for someone. So well used in fact, that one of the original tools, a stainless steel knife, has broken off at some time and a running repair carried out by the owner. Eloi Pernets of this type were always made with three tools - scissors, knife and file. A quite skilful repair has been effected; the broken off knife stub has been removed and the edge of the file has been sharpened to a blade, which is razor sharp.An interesting modified piece which retains all its original functions through the skilful repair. The piece has its original silver chain, and came to me in a blue soft pouch (not original).
For the technically minded the coin is approx 37mm diameter and the whole piece weighs 32g.I'll let it find its own value as usual so it'll be a low start, saleIf you're offerding, I wish you the best of luck.
