Uncirculated and choice brown example. Sharply struck. Farthing.
Exeter Change was a large, three-story building in the West End of London. Pidcock’s Royal Menagerie of animals was exhibited here and for many years was one of the most popular sites in London to visit. A wonderful series to collect. Considered an advertising token.
