COIN

Unique ID: GAT-267709

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A penny or halfpenny of modern period, possibly Victorian (1819-1901 AD). The coin itself is extremely worn to the point where almost no detail can be seen on either side. However a slight indentation on what is presumably the obverse can be seen in the shape of what appears to be a woman (most likely Victoria herself). There is moderate corrosion on the coin, more so on the presumed reverse. The coin is of a dark brown colour (excluding the corrosive green coloration). The coin has a diameter of 24.58mm and is 1.87mm thick. It weighs 4.00g.
