Very worn Victorian “bun” penny countermarked 999.  Could this be telephone emergency related? The emergency number was established in 1937 so we suspect this was made then.

The coin is completely without a date.

Note: a penny was the cost of a phone call from a phone box  up to the 1960’s in the UK
