Breen-210, W-11520 variety, Nothing Beneath the King type. Considered to be Rarity-5+ as a type, but certainly R-8 in the astonishing condition seen here.
Suitably placed in the lead-off position here on our post St. Patrick’s Day list, this is an exceptional and frankly totally unexpected example of this rare issue, with lovely surfaces, full mint frost, delicate golden toning and excellent eye appeal.
And PCGS agrees, making this only the second St. Patricks coin of any denomination or type they’ve graded mint state (the other being a copper Farthing we handled a few years back).
And while that other piece was itself spectacular, this is the rarer and more desirable silver striking and thus, in our opinion, represents the ultimate type coin in this series.
Ex Ted L. Craige Collection; earlier "from England" on February 8, 1970.
Note that this coin has been verified by CAC.
