Finest R-7 Variety, Ex Vlack

Breen’s “Sea Beasts Below King, Stars in Legends” type. Choice glossy light brown with traces of chocolate brown toning in protected areas. The surfaces are smooth and the eye appeal of this piece is excellent. The only notable mark is a small planchet flake in the roof of the church, as struck. The legends are complete and clear except for minor elements of the legend above Saint Patrick that extend slightly off the planchet. The brass splasher is very bright and extends well outside the crown. Another premium Saint Patrick farthing and great mate for the previous lot. Noyes photo #72048. Weight 94.4 grains.
