Ex New Netherlands 4/1951, lot 778 - Stack's 6/1973, lot 784 - Laird U. Park, Stack's 5/1976, lot 55 - Archangel Collection, Stack's Bowers 10/26/2018, lot 7018.

55.6 grains. An absolutely gorgeous example of this famous colonial rarity. Rich pewter-gray toning with subtle golden and steel-blue iridescence. Lightly worn but there is some of the original prooflike luster still visible in the fields. Well-struck, perfectly centered and free from even trivial marks, spots, or other distractions. Not quite as sharp as the two best silver St. Patrick farthings to sell recently (Craige:6148 at $82,250 and Newman IV:30287 at $64,625) but right up there with those pieces in terms of overall aesthetic appeal.
