This is an interesting patriotic pin made from small denomination German coins. Eight coins are laid edge to edge to form a dome, with one slightly larger coin laid on top. A pin on the reverse allows it to be attached to the wearer’s garment. I have never seen a pin quite like it. All of the coins date from the 1860’s. It is well-made, simply marvelous and very showy. It would look fantastic on someone’s lapel, how about you?
