Another one of those "If you wear it you'll never be broke" items. And, it has been worn a lot from the look of those old nickels. This really, really looks classy when worn. Two things to note: 1) The portion with the coins is 24-inches. The entire length including the portion allowing for it to be worn without the nickels wearing on the back of one's neck in 33-inches. So, it actually hangs about half that distance, about 16-inches of so. 2) It's heavy. Not too heavy to wear, but you'll know it's on you. Weight is almost 15-ounces. There is no hallmark unless except for the U.S. Mint.
