||(c. 1670) FARTH St. Patrick Farthing VF30 NGC. Breen-213, W-11500. The punctuation following REX shows a series of six dots of diminishing sizes on this Breen-213 variety, with a colon before REX and a dot after FLOREAT. The six-dot sequence is repeated on the reverse after PLEBS. Although Breen describes stars instead of dots, this variant was identified in several collections including Griffee and Craige. High rims show a few nicks, but the surfaces are nearly unabraded with light granularity in the fields around St. Patrick. Olive tones surround smooth, medium-brown devices. The king's facial features remain. A brass splasher covers half of the sharply impressed crown, and can be seen when viewed at an angle. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
