    Description

    Mrs. Jefferson [Varina] Davis: Her "Last" Coin. Well-worn 1860 half-dime mounted in a gold frame with loop at the top. The frame is inscribed, on the obverse, "Richmond, Virginia 2nd Feb. 1863" and, on the reverse, "From Mrs. President Davis Her Last Coin" (moderate wear to inscription). There is no doubt a story associated with this, but we are not privy to it. Appears totally righteous.
