Service Details NGC
Denomination FARTH
Description (c. 1670) FARTH St. Patrick Farthing - Environmental Damage - NGC Details. Fine. Breen-211, W-11500. The coin has a glossy, antique appeal despite exposure to environmental activity affecting the surfaces. It is difficult to tell whether any brass from the splasher remains. Some of the sea beasts are missing, although two or three small ones are visible below the king. Old, dark encrustation sits atop medium-brown surfaces, where the devices are smooth and appealing, but the fields are crusty with areas of raised, dark-olive verdigris. Details are quite strong for the assigned grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $705.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
