Please review the photo carefully since they are major part of the description. I had to do a little research on some of the charms like the Maryland State coat of arms, and the fact the Maryland was named after a Queen of England.

Charms are: Maryland Blue Crab / Annapolis Midshipmen side 1- Maryland capital side 2 / Cheasapeak Bay Bridge/ Francis Scott Key, The American Anthem / Babe Ruth 60th Home Run / State of Maryland / Henrietta maria "Queen of England" 1632 side 1 - The first and second Barons of Maryland side 2 / U.S.F Constellation ship / Maryland Hunt Cup (jumping horse) / Maryland coat of arms side 1- side 2 unknown / Cumberland Road Gateway to the West (wagon ).

I do combine shipping for ebayers buying 2 or more of my auctions. Email me for details (include the items you are bidding on). You can find my other sale items by going to seller info at the top of this listing and I am downsizing my collections and household, so I add items each day. I will ship outside the US, but you will need a quote for S & H before you bid (priority shipping with insurance or delivery confirmation only). Invoices are due upon receipt. I do not take returns, but I do take time to answer your questions and retake photos. I want to make each transaction pleasant for the buyer and the seller.

Here's some info on this bracelet from the internet: In the 1960s, the Heritage Company produced a line of state theme charm bracelets that were used as promotional giveaways that banks gave their customers when they made deposits into an account. Each time a customer made a deposit they were awarded either a starter bracelet or a charm to add to it. I’m not sure how many state themes were produced, it’s likely a function of where the banks were located. I know the collections include Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. Notice that both sides of the charms are detailed – one side with a visual and the other with the name of the attraction related to that state. The charms are stamped with the Heritage hallmark which is a bell with a letter H inside. A collectible part of marketing history and also a charming addition to a bracelet collection.
