1961 Copper Wheat Penny Earrings with orange stripe beads
These lovely coins hang from orange and clear striped beads. They are very pretty, and a very thoughtful gift! They measure about 2 inches from the lobe -- if you need something shorter, please convo me and we can make something happen!
Know someone born in Denver in 1961?
Coins are shiny, and slightly cupped, I clean them, stamp a hole in them and dip them in a sealer that will keep them lovely for a long time. I make my ear wires of 100% copper. If you need sterling silver, I have an add-on you can purchase here. I also include a rubber stopper so they can't accidentally fall off!
Nothing is more appropriate for a woman's Anniversary, Birthday, or other Commemoration.
Free Shipping on purchases of $35 or more. Comes in an organza pouch perfect for gift-giving, free of charge. If there is an occasion, I can add a card at no charge, just tell me the occasion or the message in the comments.
Don't like the beads? Need another year? Convo me, I have many years from 1910-1939 and most years from 1940 to present in stock and can get the earlier years with some notice. I would love to make you a special order!
