Cufflinks - Silver Antique Barber Dimes - soldered
These cufflinks were made from antique, Silver (.900) Barber dimes (various years). Heads/tails or heads/heads set available.
I create a slight dome in the coins, create a patina to make the image pop, and then silver solder the cuff links onto the coin. This creates a lasting hold (better than glue or epoxy). I then apply Renaissance Wax Polish. This helps to seal in the patina and protect the surface of the metal. You can always polish this more to create a shinier finish if you prefer.
These coins were in circulation 1892-1916. The metal composition of the coins is silver (.900). The cufflinks are stainless steel.
