Nice Faux US $5 Dollar Gold Pin & Cufflink Set – Holabird Auctions
This faux set of US Gold coins was purchased from famous Western memorabilia Holabird auctions. It consists of 3 pieces; stick pin with obverse of 1870 US $5 gold piece and 2 cufflinks of the reverse. Again – these are NOT actual $5 gold pieces and I do not believe they contain any gold but may be gold plated. They were most likely privately made for one of the Worlds’ Expositions, such as the AYPE – Alaskan-Yukon-Pacific-Expositionheld in 1909. The coins are approximately 3/4″ in diameter.
