HomeGEORGE I 1719 Farthing B over D DRITANNIA with two reverse stops
Suspect R in REX
Two reverse stops.
B over D in Britannia
Close up B over D
Quite an oddity indeed, the extra stop is clearly a punch miss when the reverse was touch up to keep the die in service that bit longer. As for the D, with a strong glass its clear its B over D also the inner wire ring has almost disappeared along with a very small date. On closer examination there an I over higher I and the R in REX has similarities to R over side ways R though the evidence is not conclusive. Farthing grades reverse good fair / obverse nearly fine, an important find and probably extremely rare
