What Have Ya Got?
Want something cool to have of give while COVID19 keeps everyone at home? Why not rummage through your couches and closets for some cool coins. From between the cushions to that box or bag of strange coins from a trip abroad. If it is round’ish I can turn it into a ring for you or someone special. Ideally the best one are in good, uncirculated or near uncirculated condition. A higher silver content is also a plus but not a requirement.
From a historical standpoint, coin rings have likely been around as long as coins. For a more fathomable historical perspective they came into “fashion” in World War One and WW2 as soldiers would make them into makeshift wedding bands to give to women while on furlough. Today the art has evolved into a rather precise set of methods involving starter cones, stabilizing cones, reduction dies rings stretchers, arbor presses and hydraulic presses. The gear I have accumulated has taken me over a year to afford. Hey… the good stuff ain’t cheap and the cheap stuff just leads to frustration and epiphany through hindsight. DOH!!!
So… start digging through those couch cushions and storage boxes. Send me your special coin… or 2. You can contact me for info through the CONTACT INFO page here. That’s why I named it that. Seemed brilliant at the time I suppose.
