Trench Art Spitfire. Hand made from a 3d or three pence coin into the shape of a spitfire fighter aircraft.
My grandfather James Fisher taught me how to shape a threepence coin into the shape of a spitfire fighter aircraft. Jim, a 15-year old in war-torn England, fashioned these brooches from English 3d coins during breaks from making real spitfires for the RAF near his home in Swindon.
