Description:
Circa 1724 William Wood Pattern Farthing
Nelson-18, Martin 4.1-F.1, SP64
(1724) FARTH William Wood Pattern Farthing SP64 PCGS. CAC. Nelson-18, Martin 4.1-F.1, R.7. Ex: Ford. Bath metal. 90.5 grains. An extremely rare William Wood pattern struck circa 1724. The portrait of King George closely resembles Nelson-13, a 1724 halfpenny. The reverse design is reminiscent of the Hibernia issues, but legends are absent. The bath metal composition, however, suggests that the pattern may be more closely related to Wood's Rosa Americana series.
There are eight known examples of Nelson-18. These are detailed in Ford VII:96, although research indicates that the Heritage 8/2001:5028 and Stack's 3/1975:703 items are for the same piece, and a second piece also receives dual listing in the Ford VII catalog under Brand II:951 and Stack's 1/2001:48. We believe the present Ford specimen is the finest known, superior in color and sharpness to the Heritage 8/2001 piece. The strike is full, and a few minor peripheral spots do not distract. Mahogany-brown devices complement the lighter yellow-tan and golden-brown fields.
Ex: Fred Baldwin, 6/1967; John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part VII (Stack's, 1/2005), lot 96; Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 5004. (PCGS# 965)
