    Circa 1670 St. Patrick Farthing, VF30
    Perhaps the Finest Known Martin 1c.1-Ca.9

    (c. 1670) St. Patrick Farthing, Breen-208, W-11500, Martin 1c.1-Ca.9, High R.7, VF30 NGC. 94.1 grains. A faint, darkly toned brass splasher is visible at the top of the obverse on this pleasing olive and steel-brown example that shows slight surface roughness on each side. In Saint Patrick Coinage (For Ireland and New Jersey), Sydney F. Martin records just two coins that grade VF and Good. This example is possibly the finest known of the variety. Listed on page 43 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Richard Picker (12/15/1956); Norweb Collection (Bowers and Merena, 3/1988), lot 2346; Jon Hanson; Donald G. Partrick.
