    It was bright and sunny here but I like the coin regardless! :)

    Ah, thanks. I may post an 1853 farthing, or 1839 which I like to think of as copper sovereigns! LOL

    That is an awesome coin.
    I'd love to gaze at that luster.

    Me, I am drawn to the tall ship and lighthouse. Nice coin for sure. Peace Roy

    I always liked the strength this design implied emphasising the British Empire stretching from sea to sea.

    Yes, even as a smaller coin there is a lot there. I also like it because it is proof, and at that possibly the rarest farthing date in proof of at least the bronze series. I've not seen another in about 30 years.
