A cool little trinket for your backpack (attaches like a luggage tag!). This will bring you luck whether you are hiking the AT or anywhere – penny can be stamped with the “AT” symbol or “HIKE”.

Handmade (by me!) on waxed thread with large wood beads. This has a loop top, you can attach to your pack by the loop only (like a luggage tag) or by using a carabiner. Optional added compass charm.

Penny :
Compass Charm :



AT symbol hand-stamped in lead-free solder, strung on black leatherette cord with lobster clasp closure OR stainless steel ball chain with simple connector clasp.

Black is 17 inches long, Ball chain is 20 inches long (but I can easily cut this down to a smaller size, just ask!).


Cord :



I melt lead-free solder on a penny and then hand-stamped with the “AT.”  A great way to dress up your book – this is flat in the middle (where you want it, to keep your place when book is closed), and dangles with the penny charm and large beads on one end, and 3 dangles on the other end with small metallic or hematite beads.  Offered in four different colors. Beads may vary.

The perfect gift for that special hiker-friend (or yourself!).

Colors :



Have a necklace or chain already that you want to add the AT Penny charm to? No problem, you can purchase the penny only!

AT symbol hand-stamped in lead-free solder on the front of the penny. Option in drop-down box for drilled hole with split ring or no hole.
