Is there a real reason to drill a hole in a coin- Jewelry?
Hello! I grabbed just a few things from the barrel that my great-grandma left me. Bittersweet reading her handwriting on some of the envelopes. This 1828 50 cent piece has a hole drilled in it. She had written on the envelope “Money isn’t jewelry.” I wondered if people really did use money as jewelry? I’ve included a 1952 D wheat penny just because it’s so pretty and shiny! The dent in it is probably just damage.
