'In Emergency Break Glass' 10 Shilling Note 9k Gold Pendant Charm Vintage English 1964.
'In Emergency Break Glass', this is a fun pendant or charm ensuring that you are never out of money in a 9ct yellow gold case dating from a time when charms were very popular. Again today these little works of art have become very collectable being worn traditionally as a charm or with a modern twist as a pendant from a necklace.
The English gold hallmark can be found to the rear, the mark is rubbed but it reads London assay office with the date letter for the year 1964. This is where you also find the makers mark 'F.M'. To the rear there are 4 small pin prick indents, see pictures. To the side the charm is inscribed 'In Emergency Break Glass', behind the plastic lens is a 10 shilling note, this should be real but we have not removed to check, sold as seen. We have not removed the note as we are not convinced we would be able to place back in the charm, please also note that 10 shillings note is no longer legal tender in the UK meaning it could not be spent today.
