Nice find.  The pin part looks really straight as well.  I think its going to get harder and harder to find jewelry made from converted currency in the future, as the current coins wouldnt hold up.

Nice looking earring you found and I hope that you find the other one that goes with it.

Good luck and good hunting.

Stay safe in the water.

A bit of a weird one this morning.. a 1949 3-pence made into a pin.. maybe a hat pin or earing.. it's my first find with the Deus II at a place I call the 'silver mine'.. this spot continues to surprise me with not just it's old silver coins but also gold jewellery.. I like this little pin, someone did a good job soldering the post to it..  

 

I wonder if that was the owner birth year, if so it would be sterling silver coin / pin if owner was was born prior to 1946 instead of 50% silver. Great and unusual find. 🤩
