Description The seller's husband acquired this coin at the Charring Cross Market, London in the 1980s. Interestingly, the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge has in their collection a 1971 Eire Penny also stamped ?1690?. Their example, from the Gavin Scott collection (E81), was likewise acquired from the Charring Cross Market in September, 1982. I haven't seen their example to compare the two. The date is stamped with very large style punches, a very common occurrence on ?1690? coins. Purchased from Sylvia Farey / Canvey Island, Essex, UK. (Fb. 5, 2020) ($2).
