This is an 1835 5 Francs coin that has been split in two and connected together with a rim that opens to a nice storage compartment. This was given to me for my birthday by a very dear friend who inserted a nice greeting inside the compartment. He has given me many, many unique gifts including a trade dollar that truly does have a secret compartment.

    Very Nice item (coin) and a great gift, you have a very nice friend if judged by his or her gifts. As a former drug investigator this item would have been over look if a search was done in a rush. Now the officer searching would stop to look at the old coin, and it would be discovered. Very nice Hardbrake

    You aren't going to tell us what the "nice greeting" was, are you?
  10. purpledog purpledog, 5 years ago
    Hello blunderbuss2. I would love to reveal the contents of the "nice greeting" but that would ruin the mystery wouldn't it! :) Trust me, it's a very nice greeting. :)

    Thanks so much for your interest and question. I do appreciate it. :)
