1868 Victoria Third Farthing in an extremely high grade Maximize

1868 Victoria Third Farthing in an extremely high grade

Issued for Malta as their "grano" was 3 to a farthing.  

Allow me to demonstrate the elegance of predecimal maths: 

there's 3 of these to a farthing, so 12 to a penny.  Thus, there's 144 to a shilling, and 2,880 to the pound.  

There were 576,000 pieces minted = £200 on the nail.

Scarce date
