About This Item
This is a beautiful geocoin I'm giving to my beautiful friend, EasternGirls.
This geocoin is octagonal rather than the standard circle. It is decorated with hearts and has a compass rose in the center. The text reads "To My Sweetheart with Love Always".
From Wikipedia: "A sailor's valentine is a form of shellcraft, a type of mostly antique souvenir, or sentimental gift made using large numbers of smallseashells. These were originally made between 1830 and 1890 and they were designed to be brought home from a sailor's voyage at sea and given to the sailor's loved one or loved ones. Sailor valentines are typically octagonal, glass fronted, hinged wooden boxes ranging from 8" to 15" in width, displaying intricate symmetrical designs composed entirely of small sea shells of various colors glued onto a backing. Patterns often feature a centerpiece such as a compass rose or a heart design, hence the name, and in some cases the small shells are used to spell out a sentimental message."
