Pendant Identification
« on: July 21, 2018, 09:45 AM »
Hi All, I am new to this forum and would like help in identifying this Pendant. Found it just of Beacon Island Beach an area known for a few wrecks. Does the face look familiar to anyone? Thanks!

I am wondering if that wasn't maybe a coin that was cut like that into a pendant. Does the edge look like a coin?

Hi. Thats a nice find. Congrats. I am thinking the same as Paul. It might be a coin that was cut. I have seen Paul Kruger coins that was cut like that. How does the back of the pendant look?

Cheers and Happy hunting :)

Hi guys, thanks for the reply. Learnt something from this about jewelry made from coins, will in future check sizes of finds to coin sizes. Edge is smooth and back is the same as front.

Might not be a coin then. It just looked like it might be one. If the same face is on both sides then it probably is an actual pendant
