Faux Stack of Gold Columbus Coins

$80.00

The stack of Columbus coins that do NOT open have always been quite popular with Columbian Expo collectors. Those are solid and heavy, used as paper weights. We will have one of them available shortly. This piece appears to be aluminum with gilt finish. The fair concessions were all agog over the relatively new metal, aluminum, and while there are dozens of aluminum medals from the fair, the number of other Aluminum souvenirs was somewhat lower. This featured a faux coin with Columbus in a heavy ruffled color and it is hinged to reveal a small "stash" box.
