Salisbury Jack

inscription:  Model of the royal Salisbury jack from original in Museum.

height:  45mm, 80mm and 135mm

matching arms:  City of Salisbury

notes:  The small size is sometimes found with two coats of arms, and it can also be found with no arms but bearing a motif consisting of a coloured crown above the legend "CR 1646", which is thought to commemorate a visit by King Charles I to Salisbury in 1646. The large size always bears this "CR 1646" motif, usually together with two coats of arms but sometimes alone.
