    1760 Hibernia-Voce Populi Farthing
    Large Letters, Breen-234, MS63 Brown

    1760 FARTH Hibernia-Voce Populi Farthing, Large Letters MS63 Brown PCGS. CAC. Breen-234, W-13800, R.5. These farthings were actually struck in Dublin, Ireland, in 1760, although some made their way to America. This piece is one of only two MS63 Brown pieces certified at PCGS. We sold the finest, an MS64 Brown, in our Central States auction (4/2009, lot 956) for $17,825. This piece is somewhat better struck, with a straight clash mark at the upper obverse, from the rim at 11 o'clock and passing through the front of the laurel wreath. The surfaces are smooth and medium-brown, with lots of eye appeal. Struck somewhat off-center towards 4 o'clock on the obverse, as usual, and much better centered than most. Listed on page 47 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 63 Brown, 1 finer (6/09). (NGC ID# 2AUA, PCGS# 256)
