    I was digging around in a $3.00 jewelry box and found this cool souvenir bracelet. The coins are Australian. There is a 1943 sixpence, 1912 Shilling (cut as a heart, there appears to have been a stone, now missing), 1917 Shilling, 1944 Florin (cut as a heart, with a red stone on the reverse), 1910 Shilling, 1914 Shilling (cut as a heart, with a red stone on the reverse) and a 1943 Sixpence. She clasp looks to be cut from a Sixpence and is very nicely done, the connectors appear to be aluminum. Australian coins minted between 1910 and 1945 comprise 92.5% pure silver (aka sterling silver). All the coins here are 1944 or earlier. Overall length is just under 7.5 in. I received a comment on one of my other pieces and I saw scottvez commented on a similar piece he had, I'll return the favor for scott!

      I love these florin bracelets! They were a popular souvenir piece from Australia.

      One distinction that I would make: I wouldn't call an object "trench art", unless the object is made from War debris. I would just call it a souvenir.

      In the case of this example, the aluminum "connectors" MAY have been sourced in something military.

      Thanks for sharing!

      Scott. I saw the " trench art" label when I researched it. I think I agree with you though. Thanks for looking!

      I usually play it safe and call most of my florin items souvenirs. I make an exception when they are encased in plexiglass-- which without a doubt came from an aircraft.

      I also believe it is illegal to deface shall we call it money in anyway. I happen to think a great job was done enjoy it it was made so long ago & you were most probably not born then.

      Some of that stuff is twice as old as I am! Besides, if they want to drag me to Australia, I might go...
