This piece, of which only one specimen is known, is in pewter, and has been considered by several eminent numismatists to be one of the numerous patters struck before the issue of the royal farthings in 1672. The late Mr Burn, the author of the catalogue of the Beaufoy Collection, in the possession of the Corporation of London, considered it to be that of Elias Palmer, who submitted his pattern shortly after 1665. The reverse, though similar to the obverse of the regal farthing, is not the same, but somewhat ruder in execution.
