Found this little chap on the surface today.

My puntage is an Edward IV light coinage London farthing but if anyone can correct or confirm that I'd be very grapefruit.

Thanks for looking :thumbsup:

I suppose it does, Ian. But you'd need the eyes of a hawk to spot this little fellah basking in the sun. I'd have walked right past it if the machine hadn't screamed at me :thumbsup:

Nice one John. Tiny blighters aren't they. Farthings require magnifying glasses, that's how I tell them apart ;)
