GEORGE I Farthing 1724 Smaller flan with die clash both sides


There is evidence of old filing on the coins edge though not completely everywhere, die clashing is obvious though on careful examination not only have both raised areas been subject to die clashing the obverse shows it was struck by the reverse when ( planchet ) blank causing an incurse silhouette of Britannia.

The first die clash is not so obvious the only remains of can be seen under the Kings chin & neck. Notice the E in REX  has burst its incursed seat on the obverse die. Now the lower part resembles a 4.

Certainly an interesting piece at that, farthing grades fine and with a knowing of the above, problem free in an odd sort of way.
