Product Description

Indian Head penny cufflinks in sterling silver

The Indian Head Penny was designed by James Barton Longacre, the engraver at the Philadelphia Mint. In 1864 these coins changed to bronze and Longacre
modified the portrait by sharpening the details and added his initial "L" on the ribbon. His design is based on the one that first appeared in copper before the Civil War.
