A great piece of history is found in this lovely coin silver love token made from an unknown coin. The coin measures 30.87mm wide and still has its reeded edges. The front has the date 1893 and the back has what looks like 3 or 4 initials - but I was never good at reading these things. The coin is on an older chain with a Victorian style spring ring as found on book chain necklaces, but much smaller.
Here are just a few of the more interesting things that happened in 1893;
World Columbian Exposition opens in Chicago, U.S. Marines land in Honolulu, 1st Iron Bowl: Auburn beats Alabama 32-22 in Birmingham, the second iron bowl occurred near the end of this year as well, Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup (1st Stanley Cup), Cowboy Bill Pickett invents bulldogging, Panic of 1893 crashed the NYSE, F.W. Rueckheim introduces Cracker Jacks snack, the Excelsior diamond (At the time, the largest ever) discovered in South Africa, Kōkichi Mikimoto obtains the first cultured pearl, America the Beautiful is written, Beatrix Potter writes the story of peter rabbit, As the result of a Woman's Suffrage petition, New Zealand is the 1st country to grant women the right to vote and later this same year, they indeed voted in New Zealand.
