Newman 4-E variety ‘Original’ striking (as opposed to the more typically seen restrikes circa 1828).
This piece requires a bit of explanation.
Struck in tin some 320 years ago, most of these pieces have deteriorated and evidence tin pest and corrosion of some degree or other. And while this piece exhibits some requisite surface roughness and minor tin pest, it is well above the norm for this type and quite pleasing overall.
Sharply struck with nice detail, attractive mellowed pewter-gray color, a trace of mint flash in the lettering and, as such, a handsome example to represent this series.
