Charm with flowers
« on: July 26, 2016, 09:05:20 PM »
Nice item submitted to CoinQuest for attribution and valuation. Any help would be appreciated. I've seen those nice flowers before, but I can't place them. Thanks.

Ha! You are not missing a thing, andyg. I did not even look in the catalogs because my mind was stuck on charm/amulet. But I knew I'd seen those 'flowers' before ...

Thanks again.
