GEORGE I Farthing 1722 Large B in BRITANNIA, 2 over 1 ? small letters
HomeGEORGE I Farthing 1722 Large B in BRITANNIA, 2 over 1 ? small letters
Reverse with large B & 2 over 1 ?
on closer inspection
Im not entirely sure if its 2 over 1 but it does look fairly convincing as there’s clearly a vertical straightness about the last 2, also bearing in mind it does have a large B which is only evident on the 1721 date so its possible. The 1722 is certainly a scarce date and this 2 0ver 1 in my opinion is more convincing the Cooke number 428.
No doubt a very rare coin which is seldom seen hence the difficulty in finding a sound genuine example for comparison, though other reverse dies exist, again they also had a large B in Britannia. Farthing grades reverse fine / obverse good fine.
