Tin and copper alloy coin. Probably a plugged tin farthing of Charless II (1685-1688), very worn and abraded; issue of 1684. At first sight, no discernible detail remained on either side of a battered flan, save for the plug itself. The processing of images has thrown a bust facing left into view, which may uphold this identification.
