The piece is a little bit bigger than a nickel.
I don't know about the paper being coated as it look like the picture was printed over the metal. Crisp picture with no blurriness. The reverse indeed look like a part of newspaper printed, so even if your pendant turn it would still look nice.
The background is very very light grey and the edges of the domed coin are indeed copper like the picture. The copper edges gives it a very nice touch. In this case you can rely exactly on the picture for color and appearance. The only thing that look different is the wire. The zigzag copper wire is too thin, maybe gauge 28 at max. The wire does not look so apparent like in the picture. It would have gained to be a gauge or two bigger, to notice more the copper color and make it more rustic. No flaws at all in the design or the piece, no sharp edge, the whole piece is smooth.
Head pin can easily slide through the bead to attach.
Maybe my expectations were too high when I ordered it. When I saw it online, I went WOW I want it. But when I received it, I had no emotional response. It look like it is done in a manufacture. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with it, it is flawless and I am a hard judge. It is hard to explain. It may be just me.
