Vin's Flattened Clip
Crushed by Allomantic Forces
"Vin held up the object—the coin they had Pushed between them. It was bent and flattened from the pressure."When Vin and Kelsier both Pushed against each other on the same Clip, their sparring turned into a physical contest amplified by Allomantic power. The coin became bent and flattened from the opposing forces of the two Mistborn burning steel to Push each other. Vin eventually lost the shoving match, and Kelsier gave her the distorted coin as a keepsake. She would often think back on this lesson, that her smaller size and weight put her at a disadvantage in purely physical battles, and would learn to apply her Allomancy in increasingly clever ways.

Very quick delivery. Great items. Good service
Great service! Fast shipping and beautiful product. My only suggestion would be not to write a name on the envelope, but some folks my dig that. Either way, so impressed with your service. Thank you for everything. I will be ordering again in the future.
Absolutely wonderful! The craftsmanship of the coin, the letter that came with it, and the safe packaging the coin came in was superb. All the amazing little details has made this one of the best purchases I've ever had on Etsy. Highly recommended.
