Nelson-7 variety, undoubtedly one of the 20 to 25 pieces of this type discovered in England in the late 1950’s housed in a sterling silver tube with larger silver halfpennies as the caps.
Since the original discovery, many of the farthings within have been scattered and now reside in various collections and museum holdings.
And, unfortunately, many have been cleaned or dipped in the ensuing years, with just a few really pristine, untouched examples remaining with their distinctive toning pattern and palette intact.
And this is one of those, with lovely delicate hues on the obverse and reverse and fresh, original surfaces which have remained that way, against all odds, for nearly 300 years.
