What is a guinea in 1877 & 1884?  The guinea ceased to be produced in 1814.  So, what is a guinea in 1877?  There is the guinea of the 1600's, 1700's, and early 1800's.  And how about the Draken.  This brought in old spirits to here.  It's the port of choice, somewhat.  Fall River maybe even more.  Communication.
