A total of 34 'scratched field' bronze coins are recorded of all dates and denominations, made up of 20 Pennies, 7 and 7 s. Of the 20 Pennies, 12 are known to be in the British Museum , this being one of the remaining 8 available to commerce. An extremely rare opporty to bid on a piece of Victorian numismatic history.
