A vintage, silver ten shilling note charm
This is a vintage, silver charm for a bracelet or necklace containing an old, "emergency", British Ten shilling note. It's a little piece of English monetary history which you can wear.
A ten shilling or 'ten bob' note, has been rolled and folded up and placed into a small plastic transparent tube. As it only weighs 2 grams, it is a perfect size to hang from a charm bracelet or a fine chain necklace.
The note was in circulation from 1928 and was withdrawn on 20th November 1970. It was replaced with a seven-sided coin: the 50 pence piece, so the charm is probably from the 1970s, which also matches its condition.
It isn't hall-marked, but we have tested it positively as silver.
