[CORRECTION]. Note that LONDON 81 and LONDON 84 are in fact identical except for letters S|P in fields which are absent on LONDON 84. Bust type in both cases is K1 l. LONDON 84 is significantly rarer, so the lack of letters in fields could be simply an engraver's error. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 100-102 and CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 102. Listed in Cloke-Toone together with LONDON 84 (8.07.030).
