Vintage 1940's Liberty Silver Half Dollar Onyx Bolo Tie, 1950-1970's, 36"
Vintage Sterling Silver Onyx & U. S. 1940's SIlver Half Dollar Coin Bolo Tie. This is a unique bolo tie from the 1950's-1970's - the undercarriage of the bolo slide is a United States Liberty Half Dollar with Eagle on Back. The slide is slightly rounded with raised oval bezel-set onyx arranged with a larger center stone and eight smaller ovals arranged like a clock around the oval stone. The slide is 1.25" across. When you flip it over you can see the coin back as well as the ridges along the sides of the coin. As best I can match it up - it's a 1940's Liberty Half Dollar with an Eagle on the back. The end caps are 1.75" long and test as sterling silver. The black braided leather is 36" long and in very good condition - the entire piece is in great condition and good quality. The slide is heavy and sturdy. It has typical silver patina on the slide but it gives it great character - this is not a tinny slide but a heavy slide with it being the thickness of a silver half dollar and having additional bead work on it as well as the raised onyx. It is not signed that I could tell. The best I could do to match the coin was look at the tips of the eagle's wings - I'm sure a coin person would recognize the year immediately. This came from a PA estate sale. See photos. Lot. Loc. Win. 10.2916.G3.2X5
