We love finding these antique love tokens, you never know what engravings you're going to find! These sentimental gifts were made of coins, smoothed down on either one side or both and then hand engraved with names, terms of endearment, special dates or even secret messages and then gifted to your loved one - such a sweet present to show your love!
This antique, Edwardian British silver love token has been smoothed down on one side and then hand engraved 'Meg' with some pretty decorative details too. The other side has been left as is and shows the side profile of King Edward VII. We believe from its diameter it was originally a threepence coin that dates between 1902 and 1910 and the three pence coin is no longer in circulation in the UK.
The love token is made of silver (unmarked) and measures approx 16mm in diameter (approx 20.1mm tall including the jump ring at the top) and weighs approx 1.35g.
Condition - The love token is in good antique condition with some surface wear and patina to the silver. The jump ring is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.
