English Coins 1821 Uniface s or electrotypes for both sides of the coin, the reverse slightly convex, struck in silver; The reverse displays a small raised dot on the horse's breast, This ties in with ESC 262 (page 33 1992 edition) which states:- 'a small dot on the horse's body' which 'has not yet been removed' Rayner is referring to a plain edge coin minted the following year exhibiting the same characteristics as this piece. The reverse also missing the streamer, this also referred to in Linecar & Stone 6 on a copper trial (Page 57) where it is stated 'This would appear to be an artist's trial the check the erasion of the streamer' We also note some raised dots on the King's portrait, this would appear to be an intermediate whose design was adopted, albeit with some changes, on the 1821-1822 Currency issues, Both sides NEF with matching dark grey tone, and both sides with full edge inscription as on the currency 1821 issue, an interesting insight into the progression on artists types 1820-1822. A coin of this description with the dot, but with full streamer and dated 1820 was present in the Forster, Marshall, Brice, Lingford, Clarke-Thornhill, man, Hamilton-Smith, Monagu and Murdoch s
