eBay Find | Vintage Cartier Saint Gaudens Money Clip

with one comment

This Classic Vintage Cartier Money Clip is listed on eBay.  A 1927 Saint Gaudens twenty-dollar gold coin is interned in this 18 karat gold money clip.  Most coins, even though they are artistic pieces in their own right, once put into jewelry lose their numismatic value.  I guess this depends on the jeweler.  Cartier made this piece in the fifties, and this money clip is listed well over its precious metal value.  The owner claims the retail value to be $6,300, but you can pick this up today at a bargain price of $4,490.  I am no expert on vintage jewelry, so I don’t really know how what kind of deal this is.  It is guaranteed to be Cartier and from the fifties, so in my book, it gets a “Cool Stuff” stamp.  Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
