    (c. 1670) St. Patrick Farthing in Silver, XF40
    Martin 1c.18-Ba.17, Ex: Norweb

    (c. 1670) St. Patrick Farthing, Silver, XF40 NGC. W-11520, Martin 1c.18-Ba.17. 99.8 grains. One of two St. Patrick farthings in silver from this die pair in the Norweb collection. Sydney Martin lists a third example in his 2018 reference, Ex: Ford, as the only other known. Donald G. Partrick owned both of the Norweb pieces, the other one having just been offered in our March 2021 offering from the Partrick Collection. These sales represent collectors' first chance to acquire these coins in many years.

    The present piece shows light wear consistent with the XF40 grade, but all major design elements remain visible. The surfaces have satin luster in the fields, enjoying original olive-gray toning overall. A few minor marks seen with a loupe serve as pedigree markers. Listed on page 43 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Purchased from Spink & Son via private treaty (8/24/1960); Norweb Collection, Part II (Bowers and Merena, 3/1988), lot 2385; Jon Hanson; Donald G. Partrick.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
