Vintage Silver Mercury Dimes dimes have been skillfully converted by hand into domed shaped beads, soldered together and strung to create this beautiful and artistic necklace that is finished with an old style, handmade hook/eye closure. 

Many consider the silver Mercury Dime coin to be the most beautifully crafted of all the dimes coined by the US Mint Department. The dime features Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, a conical cap often worn pulled forward. The name originated from many in the public believing the image to "resemble the Roman god, Mercury". Mercury Dimes were minted from 1916-1945.
