BW 2257, Norweb 7477.

Very Fine, much better than the worn specimen in the Norweb collection, which was donated to the British Museum.  Extremely rare.

Poppinge Alley subsequently became Poppin's Court, which is still to be found at the eastern end of Fleet Street.  This is the only known type from that location.
