The Silver Tone Half Dollar Coin Pocket Watch is the classic time piece. A simple but sleek silver tone case houses a genuine United States half dollar. The Silver Franklin Half Dollar was minted from 1948 to 1963. When it was issued in 1948, Benjamin Franklin became the first person other than a president to be immortalized on a circulating U.S. coin. Even the Liberty Bell on the reverse is a “first”— all previous silver coins featured large stylized eagles (To comply with a requirement to include the national bird, a miniature eagle is adjacent to the bell). The coin is secure in the pocket watch casing and opens to quartz style and second sweeping hand over classic Roman numerals. The pocket watch is 1 7/8 inches in diameter and hangs from a 14 inch steel fob open link chain. This historical high polished time piece displays the beauty of a genuine US coin on the front and then brushed finish on the back, which may be engraved and personalized. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
