George II Farthing - Extremely Rare V/U Variety

£245.00

George II Farthing, old bust, dated 1746, V/U, Peck 888, Spink 3722.

About Very Fine and an extremely rare type; slight die flaw after II.

Prior to 1746, George II farthings were struck with a U (GEORGIUS) but were subsequently struck with a V (GEORGIVS).

Peck notes that this V/U variety must be either a corrected die error or an unworn die with the IUS ending officially altered for further use.

Weight: 5.09g (78.55 grains), Diameter: 23.8mm.
