What a great buy. I would go with the 3rd 1893 Maundy 3 pence, with #2 a close second.


Great minds think alike.

Hello Hiho,


On that 1697 Farthing at the top, it appears that the 6 and 9 in the date are doubled. Does anyone know if that is common in coins from that era? Is it a value adder or just something common. It seems pretty sharply struck twice.


Just curious.

Good eyes Nicolas!


I think that doubling and other errors were fairly common at the time before the minting process became more sophisticated and dependable.


Interesting coin nevertheless.
