Obv: Adam & Eve in the garden of Eden, MAN OVER MAN HE MADE NOT LORD around. Rev: A chained slave, AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER around, JAMES in exergue. Edge: Plain.

Uncirculated. Small reverse tone spot on back of slave. Otherwise, choice with great surfaces. Well struck. Scarce. Farthing. 

Engraved by James for Thomas Spence, this anti-slavery farthing expresses the equality of all men (and women). The chained slave design is based on Thomas Bewick’s seal for the Society of the Abolition of the Slave Trade, first used in 1788.
