Coin Box or Coinpot
« on: August 05, 2015, 08:06:23 PM »


I have wanted an old coin box for a longtime but settled for now on a new coin box,  or as the Welsh guy that made this calls it "coinpot", made from old coins.

The band of copper joining the coins is brighter than my pics show, hopefully it will darken over time.  It makes a nice pocket piece.

Unfortunately 2 coins were harmed in its making :o
