WILLIAM IV Farthing 1837 Normal issue

The William IV farthing had a very small date run and was ended on the death of the King in June 1837 when his niece ( by his Majesty’s choice )  became Queen Victoria. Williams Wyon`s was chief engraver at the royal mint till his death in October 1851 his farthing coinage in a collecting scene was quite boring and most mechanical with very little to collect or look out for, but towards the ten years of his life errors started to appear and are still being found. Farthing grades reverse good extremely fine / obverse extremely fine.
