I recently obtained a Prince of Wales box. It came with two sets of miniature model coins.

One set is copper it consists of: Half, Quarter, Eighth and 1/16 Farthing. All dated 1848 except the last one which is not dated. The other one is silvered/tinned and consists of a Penny, Half Penny (2 pieces) and 1/4 penny. Also all dated 1848.

According to Rogers these boxes contain three miniature coins. Does any one know which of these sets belongs to the box. Also the copper set consists of 4 pieces. Perhaps the largest one, the half farthing does not belong to the other three as the portrait is different.

The diameter of the box is 17 mm, thickness is 5,3 mm. The two largest coins are 13,4 mm (half farthing) and 10.4 mm (penny). The smallest ones are 7,1 mm (1/16) and 7,2 mm (1/4 d).
