(1670-75) FARTH St. Patrick Farthing, Breen-208, W-11500, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 360?. A well-struck example of these intriguing coins, with unusually distinct design elements and legends. Struck on a somewhat irregular planchet, testifying to the rugged conditions under which they circulated, the piece features light tan coloration with occasional darker spots and smooth surfaces. The brass splasher added to the crown is prominent. Listed on page 43 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
