VICTORIAN LOVE TOKEN - “G.C.”

$25.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1054-1501

Love tokens were a craze, especially among young girls, during the Victorian era. They were coins that were smoothed flat on one or both sides and then hand engraved with the name or initials of the giver. These were meant to be sentimental keepsakes and remembrances from the giver to recipient. Tokens were given by a beau to a girl, and also by friends and family members. All denominations of coins were used.

This silver token is a U.S. Seated Liberty quarter. It features the initials, “G.C.” surrounded by a ruffled design on the face. Reverse has spread-winged eagle with wording that reads, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA QUAR. DOL.”. Original T-bar pin and C-clasp remain intact.

This is a great memento from the Victorian era.  [sl]
