Lot 1155
Unusual 1849 Half Dime "Spinner," Fine.
30 mm in diameter. A most unusual piece consisting of an 1849 Half Dime embedded in a recessed area in a thick chunk of lead-like material with a tiny copper button on the opposite side. The Half Dime has some marks and scratches. We can think of no other purpose for this item except that it may have been used as some sort of spinning toy, which it does quite well. We'd be interested in hearing from anyone in our audience who has seen such a piece before. Accompanied by a small, old, handmade, leather carrying bag.
