Silver Mercury Dime Ring - various years - hand cut Winged Liberty with silver d
A Lucky Buttons original design, I make these rings entirely out of 90% (.900) Silver dimes.
The face of the ring features a "Mercury" or "Winged-Liberty" dime. We make these out of various years. These were made 1916-1945. The year on the coin you receive will be at random.
I cut all this by hand using a bow drill and a jewelers saw to cut away the negative space, leaving the main image and "Liberty" intact.
I hand forge another silver dime for the band and silver solder the pieces together, creating a strong and lasting bond.
Mercury Dimes were named after Mercury, the Greek messenger of the gods. Originally called "winged Liberty" dimes, the idea of the wings on the head was "flight of thought". Our take on that is to learn all you can in this world and fly with it!

NOTES ABOUT METAL COMPOSITION:
Most of the skin contact is with the silver (.900) dime band. The main coin contains copper and is unsealed.
