Auction 149
Hammered Coins s, Three small STRIPS of '' type farthings each containing a number of uncut coins, with key and dagger mintmarks, maybe others as well. Inverted axes. All with the very rare 'CARA', thus hitherto considered contemporary forgeries, but the location, stated to be in the well of Scarborough Castle may date them to the 1645 . This provenance certainly appears on the accompanying card, in old hand-written script, the card glued in half, internally with ornate script print and part of the date '191-', suggesting that the card was written about 100 years ago, when the strips were found. The strips were bought in an auction some 30 years ago. They were then in a frame, along with the card. They were recently offered to the Rotunda Museum in Scarborough, but they declined to purchase them as almost identical strips of farthings were already in their possession. These, they said, 'were found in the Castle well during excavations in the 1920s'; hence the same provenance being attached to these They are heavily patinated but with much clear, sharp, detail. Several side edges show circular cut-outs. Dimensions (maximum) - Strip 1: 42mm x 15mm. Strip 2:42mm x 14.5mm.; Strip 3: 33mm x 17.5mm. UNIQUE, and, for several reasons, highly important numismatically.
