    I've been collecting love tokens on and off for about 12 years. Sadly I have sold a lot of them but started collecting them again about three years ago and decided today to take photos of most of them. So I figured I would post some of those photos. Sorry my photography skills are of mediocre quality.


    I like these two because you don't see matching love tokens to often that weren't cufflinks.

    I like this one because it is on a Barber half, still has the pin, and has a death date.

    I like these because they aren't on a silver coin. 100_5766.JPG 100_5769.JPG 100_5771.JPG 100_5772.JPG 100_5775.JPG 100_5776.JPG

    I much enjoy these pieces of Americana too. I found a smoothed large cent in my dealers junk box not long ago. I always figured it was an unfinished love token. So I finished the piece with my own sentiment.

    This is the only love token I have seen where only a portion of the coin design was removed.

    This is probably my favorite love token. It amazes me the time involved, skill, and imagination it took to make some of these.

    I am fairly certain this is a $2.50 piece

    This is the only love token jewelry I own. I have never owned old cut outs before, all of the links holding it together are silver plus they are soldered shut which is nice. I have more but will post them later. 100_5897.JPG 100_5899.JPG 100_5900.JPG 100_5901.JPG
