Post by les-27 » Wed Jan 02, 2019 2:41 pm

Hi folks I got out today on a new permission near home, there was plenty of signals but all the usual dross big pennies and modern buckles .and then up popped this tin farthing which is a 1st for me it seems to be dated 1689 .and according to my spink book it's quite rare. I havnt tried cleaning it yet as I'm unsure best method for tin coins . Thanks for looking ::g
