Item Description
1” wide by 2.25” tall by .5” thick including very high relief profile of Hope caricature on the front, showing his famous ‘ski-jump’ nose. Stamped on base “14K Gold Plated” but no other text. Seems to be c. 1960s and with addition of a flint appears to be in working condition. Tiny bit of gold off top of the ear and a little additional under magnification but gold plating remains about 98% complete. Possibly used as a personal give-away by the comedian. First we’ve seen.
