Description 1724 FARTH Hibernia Farthing XF45 NGC. Martin 3.9-D.1, W-12600, R.4. This example displays reasonably sharp strike definition over the centers and most of the dentils are fully on the flan, even if some are incompletely formed. Pleasing chocolate-brown toning is evenly distributed across both sides of this attractive piece. A die crack is noted on the upper obverse from the rim at 12 o'clock downward over the tops of GRA. A small planchet lamination is observed on the lower obverse, extending from the rim onto the tip of the bust, and a larger lamination, on the reverse, bisects the H in HIBERNIA and travels to the feet of the seated figure. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
