I’m looking over a collection for a friend, and saw this double sided coin holder in it!
It’s the ugliest – but also the prettiest! – coin holder I have yet to see! Lol…
Check it out:
It looks like it should be able to be opened on *BOTH* ends, but sadly that is not the case. It only opens on one, however, if you pop that blue sponge out you can slip a coin in the other end and then pop the sponge back in and place your front coin in there next and voila – a double sided coin holder!
I burst out laughing when my friend said I can keep it, but now I think I’ll actually take him up on it… It’s abnormally large, but hey – it’s growing on me :) Never know what you’re going to find digging through peoples’ things! Haha…
I’ll blog next about the entire collection… He tapped me to evaluate it all, and then liquidate it – fun!
PS: I tried Google Lens to search for image matches online to see who makes these, but alas no luck… All I got back was a bunch of make up and colored sand that’s impressively identical 😂 My guess is that this holder dates back to the 60’s or 70’s – it’s super old school!
