This section is dedicated to love tokens on type coins.  As silver and gold love tokens have their own page, this section showcases copper and nickel coins in addition to a few more unusual silver coins; three cent silver, twenty cent, and commemorative coins.

When sending submissions for type coins, please include a second image of the reverse.  Both obverse and reverse are needed to be able to post on this page.

 Commemorative Coins

 

 

 Columbian half dollar love token box coin and enameled!  RARE find.  This English style enamel work was done in the early part of the 20th century.  Often these English enamels mimicked the coin design, but this one departs from the standard coin design and becomes a love token with initials.  Enclosed photo is original to the period.  When closed, it is difficult to tell this piece is a locket.  A special countersunk hinge is used to create the illusion.

 

 

 

 Large “OH” initials in white enamel and small white “M” or obscured “T” in white.  “L” in wine color and “C” in blue enamel.  This could possibly be a marriage piece with two people sharing a last name, perhaps the blue “C” as it stands out the most in a separate color from the others. 
A stunning and unusual love token.  Also
a crossover collectible for box coin and enamel coin collectors.

 

 

 

Obverse: Cut out Columbian half dollar watch fob with two diamonds.

Reverse: Engraved “AH”  and emblems
for Odd Fellows, Shriners, and Masonic organizations.

 

 

 

 

 

   Columbian half dollar engraved “CD”
   Two pieces sandwiched together with
   cut out coin design on reverse.
