Denomination FARTH
Description (c. 1670) FARTH St. Patrick Farthing VF20 NGC. Breen-213, W-11500. This is a second example of the unusual six-dot variety, and shows the identical punctuation characteristics as the previous lot. However, it exhibits more wear and a greater amount of granularity in the fields. Although the kraft envelope for this example suggests a total of 18 dots, the correct number is 12 dots (six dots on each side). Only minimal evidence of the splasher remains, with some brassy color on the lower portion of the crown. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $940.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
