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

An incomplete, worn and corroded tin-alloy farthing with a central copper-alloy plug struck for Charles II, dating c. 1684-1685. Spink 3395. The coin has suffered considerable edge losses between c. 10 o'clock and 12 o'clock on its obverse face.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).

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.

A complete but worn tin farthing of Charles II (AD 1660-1685), dating to AD 1684-1685. The tin farthing is complete with the copper alloy plug (although this appears white like lead) still in the centre. The coin is corroded and any date or inscription around the edge of the coin is unreadable, however both the obverse and reverse are clear enough to read the inscriptions. 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).

Post medieval tin contemporary copy of a halfcrown of Charles II (1660-1685), unclear bust, AD 1663-1684. The tin or lead-tin mix would originally have appeared silver but has corroded and thickened badly, losing the edges and damaging the obverse design in particular.
