This Antique Italian Silver Watch Fob Chain consists of 12 Italian Silver Coins, dated from 1865 to 1868, ranging from 1 Lira to 2 Lire to 10 Soldi.
Each Coin features the Catholic Pope of that Period on the Face of the Coin, and the amount of value on the rear.
The coins would be .900 Silver, with the mounts and loops being .800 silver for durability, and the long Loop is also hallmarked with the French Silver standard. The length of the Fob Chain is 12.5". **The Watch shown in the photo is not included**
This very unique Man's Watch Fob may have been a Souvenir of a Grand Tour to Italy in the Victorian Period, and worn by a newly immigrated Italian-American, of which there were many at that timeframe.
We have never seen this type of Coin Watch Fob before....it would be an excellent gift for the Holidays
