Washington Silver Quarter Eagle 1942 Coin Pendant Gold Filled Bezel
A 14kt gold filled screw top bezel holds this 1942 silver Washington quarter. A 14 kt 19 inch necklace chain is included.
The silver strike Washington quarter coins were first struck in 1932 in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Washington, the first President of the United States. Composed of 90% Silver and 10% copper. Silver quarter coins continued to be minted through 1964.
The profile image of Washington designed by John Flanagan is based on the Houdon bust. In 1785, the French sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon was commissioned by the Virginia General Assembly to sculpt a bust of Washington. The retired general sat for Houdon at Mount Vernon, the Washington family home in Fairfax County, Virginia between October 6 and 12, 1785. The sculptor took a life mask of the general's face. Portraits of Washington on medals and in other media subsequent to the sculptor's visit were most often based on Houdon's work. Flanagan's adaptation differs from the Houdon bust, the shape of the head is different, and there is a roll of hair on the quarter not found on the bust.
