Description (c. 1670) FARTH St. Patrick Farthing Fine 15 NGC. Breen-211, W-11500. The Breen-211 variety is known for an assortment of die breaks, many of them severe, which appear around the obverse rim. This example displays two beauties. A large break through FLOREAT terminates with an octopus-like blob among the sea beasts near the F, while another overflowing break appears near AT. The obverse surfaces are dark and rough, accounting for the Fine 15 designation. The reverse is exceedingly well-produced, with details and surfaces several notches higher than the assigned grade. A small splasher is centered on the base of the crown. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $763.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
