1795 Middlesex, Spence; Thomas Spence copper farthing, D&H 1091. Onto a more commonly seen error where the variety is very often irregularly struck. Perhaps trying to create so much detail on such a small planchet was to blame and their methods were more prone to errors. This piece, one of the more dramatic I’ve seen but retains a charming appeal. Even brown, lustrous in parts and just a wonderful specimen all-round. Extremely fine and as struck. 

Rarity – Mint Error

UK Grade – Extremely fine

US Grade – Uncirculated
