Obv: A barge, BASINGSTOKE CANAL around, 1789 in exergue. Rev: Wheelbarrow with shovel and pick, IOHN PINKERTON around, VALUE ONE SHILLING in exergue. Edge: Engrailed.
Good Extra Fine. Trifling marks. One Shilling!
Given to workmen who were involved with making the canal. John Pinkerton was the Secretary and he used these as payment which explains the difficulty in finding one in high grade. Very little rub on this one!
