Also found a 1800's dump, sadly these old clay pipe stems were the only things worth keeping

Well guys , went out saturday and i must of ran over a chinaman. A total of 1c no joke. Not much left in Beverley so we went to York sunday and i did well...
Thought it was just another buckle untill we cleaned it and seen the cricket bats up top and wickets and ball down the bottom. Anyone know if this is a rare one?
TIA!

"Commo wealth" on the penny is interesting! What happened to the "N" ?

Good to see another old farthing surface, that penny is indeed unusual. Can't really find any info on it, must be a one off error or the "N" was removed somehow.
