George II copper farthing

Colin Barton said he unearthed this coin on the morning of the 7th of November. It’s a George II copper farthing, with has the young head of the king on the obverse and is dated 1736 on the reverse. Colin wondered if it would be of any value in its present condition.   


The obverse would grade Fine, the reverse about VF so the state of preservation is well above average for a George II copper coin that has been in the ground for not far short of 300 years. Most of the early copper coins that I have ever found (100s) have been nowhere near as good as this one.

Having said that this coin is in good condition, it is not the natural ‘brown’ colour preferred by collectors.  However, it should still be worth around £15.
