JAMES II FARTHING
1684-1687
Designed by John Roettier. There were two obverses and
one reverse designs issued for James II farthings.

They were (with the exception of some rarer 1685 farthings
which had no copper plug) struck in tin with a copper plug
in the centre. This was to deter counterfeiters, but tin isn't
a hard metal so these coins tend to wear quickly. So they
are hard to find in high grade.

1684-1687 Tin with copper plug., 5.2-6 grams, 22-23mm
Diameter.
