    Martin 3.9-D.1

    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.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
