  • Regular price £450.00

Cartwheel Penny smoothed and crudely engraved.

Engraving reads; 'Sarah Ann Curtis, Born Febuary 29th, 1816', surrounded by a border which reads 'When this you see pray think of me & bear me in mind, let the world of me say what it may, speak as you find'.

The obverse features a worn bust of King George III with 1836 below and 'Honi Soit Q Mal Y Pense' above.

A touching token worthy of further research.
