MS63 Brown, Finest of Two PCGS-Certified
Martin 1.1-A.1, Ex: Garrett, Newcomer
The 1722 D:G:REX farthing with harp on left is very rare, although one would never know it from the humdrum prices listed on page 42 of the 2008 Guide Book. PCGS has certified just two pieces in all grades, with the present example as the single finest graded. Breen (1988) guessed, "8-10 known." The Taylor example graded Good to Very Good. We can find no previous Heritage auction appearances.
Ex: Waldo C. Newcomer; Wayte Raymond, 9/1921; John Work Garrett; Garrett Collection, Part 3 (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/1980), lot 1257, which realized $3,250.
From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three. (PCGS# 161)
