Love tokens, anyone? Sometimes found in junk boxes or sold as "damaged," tokens engraved with names, scenes, sentiments, can make beautiful and meaningful gifts.
I spotted an engraved $2.50 gold at a WFM some years ago. The obverse was the familiar Liberty head. The reverse was smoothed and engraved "Mother" in a cursive. Mother's birthday was coming up, so I bought it. This piece was in a holder with a loop so it could be worn. Yes, it was worn and prized as a special gift.
While Christmas shopping downtown, I saw a few love tokens in the window of my favorite coin shop. One bore the initials of a friend. I bought it and gave it to him. He was an athlete and kept the coin in his locker for good luck. And the last I heard, he still had it, after all these years!
Another time, I found an engraved dime with my own initials on it. I bought it for a few dollars and had it mounted to wear.
Love tokens are special and make great gifts. Don't overlook them.
