Denomination 1d
Description Coin is heavily worn and corroded with verdigris present. The stamps are indistinct, but readable. As with several other examples in this series, stray numbers have been included for no apparent reason. In this case a #8. "Orange" is associated with Loyalist...Orange Order, the color orange, etc.,...but the purpose of it struck on this coin is unclear. It's very poorly applied and difficult to see because of corrosion. Purchased from Stuart Rainford / Heswall, Cheshire, UK. (Fb. 7, 2018) ($5).
