Vintage Thursday ~ 10-21-10

Here is another piece of my old “love” jewelry belonging to my daddy. It is my grandfather’s defaced $50.00 gold piece.

 The front of the gold piece engraved with 1884.

EUGENE RODOLPHE HORNOT

The engraving on the back is "ERH."
The “H” in on top, the “R” is behind the “H,” and the “E” is made up of the top and bottom of the oval part of the “R” plus the curved line, that sort of looks like a fish, at the bottom.

Stay tuned for more little pieces of my interesting vintage family items.

This post is linked to Vintage Thingie Thursday over at Suzanne’s The Colorado Lady.

As always, Happy Vintage Thursday to all of you.
