Ok it might be missing a third of the flan (we still have some of these fragments) but what a gap filler this is for somones collection. Signs of repair, otherwise very fine details with a great provenance dating back some 122 years  When full and of this grade, a Alfred Monogram London Penny would command at least a price in excess of £20,000 (The last two that have auctioned have realised a hammer price of  £17,000 and £21,000 at DNW and Spink)
