This necklace was given to me by my husband. It belonged to his grandmothers great, great grandmother. The necklace may have been a brooch at one time. At some point the pendant had something else in it, but no one seems to know what it was. In the 1930's the Liberty coin was put in the middle. The coin had significants to the lady who wore it. What the story is behind the coin has since been lost. We just know it meant a lot to her and she placed it in the middle. We believe the chain to be around the same time period as well. The coin is held in place by 3 prongs, which in my opinion seems to be rough and sharp and not very professionally done. We have not been able to find any types of markings to tell us if it is actually silver or not. Those markings may have once been on whatever the center piece that had originally been in the middle. I love this necklace, because it was obviously worn a lot and it was very cherished by the women who owned it. It was given to me, because my husband knew I would cherish it and take care of it. I would just like to know more information on it. Btw, the same woman (the great, great grandmother) who owned this pendant, I also have her castiron pans as well. I love this kinda stuff!
