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. Diameter: 23.1mm, Weight: 5.29gms

A complete tin farthing of Charles II (AD 1660-1685), dating to AD 1684-1685. The tin farthing is complete although the copper alloy plug is mostly missing from the centre. The coin is in quite good condition however the inscription around the edge of the coin is largely unreadable. Tin farthings were first issued in 1684 to help boost the tin industry, with the copper alloy plug intending to discourage forgery but it failed in its purpose (http://www.coins-of-the-uk.co.uk/farth.html). Charles II died in February 1685 so coins of this date are quite rare. Spink (2011) No. 3395.
