A most impressive 187 x 110 x 85mm Victorian jewelry box, comprised of almost 400 overlapping "young head" English Farthings (1895 & prior), with hinged lid and lined with ribbed purple velvet. One of four Farthing "petals" at top center of lid has become separated, although included with this lot and could be easily repaired. A long-time possession of the late venerable Numismatist John McKay-Clements, and a very special piece indeed
