A really lovely little Antique British Victorian item, a hinged sovereign / coin holder. Not in bad condition overall, with a lovely pattern on it. The crest at the front appears blank so could be engraved with some initials perhaps. Comes with the penny pictured. Might make a good £1 holder for the trolley, something the Victorians didn't have a need for.
