Old sterling money clip

Numismatic Artistry | TypeCollector

Inherited this from my 90 year old father in law. Old sterling money clip with peace dollar added. Not sure if he ever used this, but perhaps used by one of his relatives. Too bad I don’t know the back story on this. Never knew about it until after he passed away in 2020 due to Covid. It’s pretty dirty and not sure if I should get it professionally cleaned. The peace dollar is not particularly rare. I may just keep as is. Nice memento.

That is very cool. I am a big Peace Dollar Vam guy so I am happy to see a very common Date was used for this. I, personally, would leave it just as it is. Sentimental. Thanks for sharing.

I run across interesting pieces such as this on occasion, however this is one I've not seen before. Appears to have been used as intended, but not everyday. The 1922 is a common, high mintage, high survival rate Peace Dollar so the monetary value is low comparative to the others. Yet the value of this is immeasurable as in the words of Longstrider. Thanks for sharing that beautiful piece.
