St. Patrick’s Farthing 8 Below King VG10


A smooth and choice example of this scarcer type with a figure 8 below the king. This piece shows nice light brown color with smooth and glossy surfaces. Some areas of strike weakness is seen on both sides, very common not only for this type, but for the coinage in general.

The type with the 8 below the king is far scarcer to find than varieties without. On this example the 8 is fully struck and bold. The brass splasher on the reverse is perfectly circular with some small dots of extra brass present to the left.

Overall, a very nice coin for the grade and a perfect example for the collector looking to add this rare type to their collection.
