Pop out image coin - Repousse style
@lordmarcovan - would like to see this one.
is that image?
pop out coin ?
not seen before.
@spirityoda. That's exactly what it is. How interesting. I'd never seen a repoussé popout Mercury dime before, either.
That fad was en vogue earlier, around the turn of the century, in the era of the Barber coins. Here is an example I had on a 1900 Barber dime.
Too bad the example in the original post is in such rough shape. It would be a fairly desirable piece of exonumia if the condition were better. It's still interesting, even as it is.
Realistically, i wouldn't think so, due to the condition, unfortunately. Too bad, because it's a pretty neat item, and a bit uncommon.
