This classic pendant is a delicately pierced solid copper penny hanging on a brass chain. The Lincoln cent (or sometimes called Lincoln penny) is a one-cent coin that has been struck by the United States Mint since 1909.  Originally struck in 95% copper, the cent coin was changed for one year to steel in 1943 as copper was needed to aid in the war effort. The mint then reverted to 95% copper until 1982, when inflation made copper too expensive and the composition was changed to zinc with an outer copper layer. The pendant is on an oxidized brass chain that is 18" long with a secure sterling silver lobster claw clasp.
