WWII Steel Pennies "Front & Back" Bracelet

Notify me when this product is available:

This bracelet is constructed from authentic WWII era coins. The 1943 steel penny was minted due to copper shortages during the war, but was unpopular with the public due to its magnetic qualities causing jamming in many vending machines. They remain a novel and unusual example of American currency, and a conversation starter.

All chain links are salvaged brass and the bracelet clasps are made of salvaged wire and wheat pennies. Each item has distinct character thanks to patina and wear. You will receive the exact item show in these photographs. This bracelet measures 7.5" long with a pull-through toggle clasp, and is suitable for 6.5" to 7" diameter wrists.
