    trench art?

    Was looking through a box of coins left behind by my grandfather and came across this. My grandfather was in the navy during wwii and there were several other foreign coins mixed in from different places he visited I assume. This caught my eye immediately. The one inside rim reads new Zealand 1940 one florin and the reverse reads George vi king emperor and was very well worked into a ring. Thanks for looking and tell me what you think

    It's possible. I've read where soldiers made coin rings for their sweethearts back home while serving overseas during downtime. Contrary to popular belief soldiers weren't at battle 24-7-365. Here's an article that even mentions the same thing and shows how to make one. How To Make A Silver Ring From A Quarter - Blind Pig & The Acorn
