Nearly Very Fine but with some surface defects.  Unique and unpublished.

It is possible that the die-sinker intended to represent the name of the street as "PICKADILY", but on this specimen the K looks more like an R.

In a parliamentary survey of 1651 the Crown Inn was described as "stronglie built with bricke and tile".  John Marshall had "drinking rooms" on the ground floor.
