A British farthing is a quarter of a penny in old money, written (¼d). Pre 1971 there were 240 pennies to the pound, so a farthing was 1/960 of a pound sterling. Very logical!
The coin is bronze, and the knife, Sheffield steel. Love the Richards brand lamp-post tang. Are there are coin knife equivalents out there in other counties, I wonder?
