Great Britain 1874H Penny

Queen Victoria Bun Head penny. This type of bronze coin was issued by the Heaton Mint in 1874, 1875 and 1877.

There are three Obverse types (6, 7 and 8) covering this year according to Spink. Unfortunately, there is too much wear to determine which one matches this particular coin.

Designated as Reverse type H by Spink.
