Shipping to United States: $2.00

Vintage U.S. Wheat Penny Earrings – 1944s

These lovely earrings hang from a beautiful flat dyed and sealed mother of pearl shell bead. They measure almost 3 inches from the lobe, and if you need something shorter, please convo me and we can make something happen!

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. I also include a rubber stopper so they can't accidentally fall off! If you need sterling silver, I have an add-on you can purchase here on Etsy.

Know someone born in 1944? In Seattle or other Washington Suburb? Nothing is more appropriate for a woman's Anniversary, Birthday, or other Commemoration.

Need a year you don't see? 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.

** These are jewelry and have only sentimental value as an item minted in the year stamped. They are no longer considered collectible coins.
