(c. 1670) FARTH Mark Newby's St. Patrick Farthing, Silver AU53 NGC. Breen-210, W-11520, R.5. 87.1 grains. The Eric P. Newman silver St. Patrick farthing is composed of 92% silver, 7% copper, and 1% trace elements. This piece is essentially sterling silver. Softly lustrous, this lilac and gold-toned St. Patrick farthing, struck on a silver flan, is among the finest known examples of its type, showing only a trace of wear on its highest points. The surfaces are smooth and unmarked. The Newman example is remarkable for its preservation. Collectors of St. Patrick farthings and halfpennies will get a clear view of the king's facial features and St. Patrick's ghostly countenance from the well-struck devices on the coin. The edge is crudely reeded as on all St. Patrick coins.
