Description (c. 1670) FARTH St. Patrick Farthing VF30 NGC. Breen-212, W-11500. A nicely detailed example, struck slightly off-center to the right on the reverse, and a little to the top on the obverse. The walnut-brown surfaces show granularity and a few small pits, but the overall visual impression is pleasing, with far more detail than often seen for the issue. A menagerie of sea beasts roams beneath the king, and three dots in triangular configuration are seen after REX. Die deterioration appears in and around PLEBS, with the P mostly covered by an advanced die break. Similar to Griffee 31-6/2a. A small brass splash remains within the crown. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
