The November 5th Coin Update newsletter highlighted a neat eBay item - "an 1893 Isabella Quarter that has interestingly been fashioned into a jewelry pin by cutting out the obverse fields of the coin, and adding a bezel and pin back." What I find most amazing about this is how the lettering has been painstakingly cut out. Wow! Images of an uncut coin are taken from CoinFacts.com.
