Description

Vintage World War II-era Thomas Jefferson Nickels, domed and polished, make a fascinating pair of earrings.  Imagine the stories these coins could tell!  The Jefferson/Monticello design supplanted the Buffalo/Indian Head nickel in 1938.  During World War II the nickel metal normally used to make the five-cent coins was in great demand for the war effort, so from 1942-1946 the coins were made from a silver/copper/manganese alloy.  Sterling silver ear wires.  1”l.  Handmade in the U.S.A.
