This piece has been forged from a WWII-era armed forces brass shell casing. It is of the very highest quality United States Government brass. The projectile would have been used in a long-range naval or artillery weapon, and the casing was most likely brought back as a souvenir of the war. Textured and highlighted to show off the decades old patina. The clip is stamped with the shell’s original date of manufacture.
This money clip is adorned with a 1945 Australian Half Penny coin, minted the same year as the shell was manufactured. It is 1 1/8" across at widest, and 2 1/4" long.
Makeshift money clips can be adjusted to securely hold your preferred thickness of bills, cards, or a combination of both. Artist's instructions for adjustment are included with your purchase.
