Hello,

George III. (1760-1820), 1775 AD.,

Copper Farthing (27 mm / 6,80 g),

Obv.: GEORGIUS - III REX , laureate and cuirassed bust of George III right, new profile.

Rev.: BRITAN - NIA / 1775 , Britannia seated left on globe, with shield, spear and spray of leaves, square countermark KS (S retrograde).

Has someone information about the origin of the countermark?

My guess would be some sort of merchant used it as a form of advertising. Perhaps a company's/person's initials?
