If you own a 1958 Plymouth, you no doubt have heard of the
rare copper-plated brass charm bracelets that were a prestige dealer
giveaway item. These bracelets have become one of the
hardest-to-find 1958 Plymouth collectibles. In my years of
collecting, I have only heard of four others besides my own.
Originals have sold on eBay with the end prices reaching
over $500. That's quite a lot for a brass bracelet...
Because so many people have inquired about purchasing mine, I went
to a local handcrafted jewelry artist to have these bracelets reproduced. He was able to make excellent
quality molds off of the originals, and recreate them in .999 Sterling
Silver with a matching Sterling link bracelet. (Note: If you are
interested in a 14k/24k gold or platinum version of this bracelet,
please contact me and I will ask the jeweler for the current pricing in
your choice of precious metals.)

As an aside, I don't make money on these. The
cost fluctuates with the price of silver, and they currently cost me
$90.95 each and I add about $7.50 to the
cost to help cover the original $500 cost of the casting molds.
