Ex W.J. Noble Collection, Noble Numismatics Sale 58 (lot 1827) and previously from W.G. Wright Collection with ticket and original envelope (purchased by him from Spink & Son, London, 10th March 1949 for fifty seven pounds ten shillings). A Specimen in the Hamer Sale in 1930 made fourteen pounds. The issue was probably very small and soon met a quick fate when they were prohibited shortly after issue.
