How on earth did you manage to get so many pictures into one post, I often give up trying to put 2 images into my posts. 😲

I would imagine URLs to a hosting site.

Except that all of the URLs are predecimal.com.  Wouldn't externally hosted pictures retain those 3rd party URLs?

The software supplied with my digital microscope allowed me to take the original digital images and crop them.  The 'image size' command allowed further reduction in the number of kilobytes of each image.  The total amounted to 485.62 K.  Seems that the resolution proved adequate.

I think the last two images are the best - they show the coin in its natural tone and are a sufficient size. (Probably didn't really need most of the others.)

Nice farthing.

The last two images are from the aboutfarthings website.  The balance of the images are the coin in my collection.  Trust this makes my description clearer.

1860 TB farthings often show a week strike, they still suffered with similar probs till about 1872 when they started to produce a better end product , although there was a steady improvement from 1860 onwards.

The major problem was the beaded border and the relative hardness of the bronze coupled with the size of the farthing  , steady progress was made for 12 years or so .

Pennies and halfpence seemed to suffer less .
