Don't write cheques that you can't cash! This vintage gold opening London cheque book charm is a great reminder of this funny saying.
The cheque book actually opens to reveal miniature paper cheques inside too!
The charm is made of 9ct gold (the cheques inside are made of paper) and has British hallmarks on the back for 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'd' for 1959. There is also a maker's mark but this is now rubbed and hard to make out.
There is engraving to the front of the cheques book that reads 'London Bank Ltd Cheque Book' and there is also a decorative border too.
The charm weighs approx 2.4g and measures approx 10.7mm tall by approx 26.6mm wide (not including the jump ring) by approx 2.2mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some surface wear to the gold. The staple inside that holds the cheques together is a little rusty. The hinge mechanism still works well and the charm clicks closed to stay closed when worn. The jump rings is currently pushed closed.
