I found this the other week on a local permission...

The coin is 22mm diameter and the reverse is completely bank

I am assuming it’s a farthing, but I’m not sure of the Monarch? Possibly a George 4th?

Looks like it could be CR II with that quiff?

Sorry, I was thinking Charles 2nd, but I'm not sure now taking a closer look.

Go with Bors on this one, George II.

It was laziness not putting them on that does it. I get a slight blur when I m not wearing them plus if I`m typing fast that doesn`t help matters ,and I only notice when I`ve read the post on the forum I realise I`ve dropped a clanger then its either edit or rewrite a groveling apology . :D

Here's hoping! At the moment the grass is too long to get back on, and then there will be cattle on for a few weeks, so it probably won't be too mid September at the earliest...
