These cuff links are crafted from authentic Mercury Dimes minted from 1916-45.
A sterling silver swivel finding is soldered to the back of both coins featuring the front-side. Measures approximately 3/4" in diameter.
Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, the Mercury Dime acquired its name from the winged cap worn by the Liberty figure on the coin's face. In 1946 it was replaced by the Franklin D. Roosevelt commemorative dime, introduced only one short year after his passing.
