1760 Voce Populi Farthing. Nelson-2, W-13810. Rarity-8-. Small Letters. AU-53 (PCGS).42.8 grains. The Nelson-2 is the great type coin rarity of the Voce Populi series, distinctive not only for its small letters, but for the lack of a "loop" at the left truncation of the bust. Its facial features vary from the Large Letters type, and the entire bust, by comparison, has a thinner, elongated appearance. Dark brown and glossy surfaces, the high points worn to a lighter olive-tan on this very fully and sharply struck example. The gloss and fullness of strike lend the impression of a significantly higher grade. This coin is struck on a wide flan that accommodated a full frame of denticles on both sides; the reverse denticles are joined by a rope or ball through their centers, creating a continuous frame with no spaces between denticles. Obverse centered toward 9 oclock, the denticles shorter at left than at right as a result, with a minuscule curved mint clip above E of VOCE. The reverse is more evenly centered, the fields and intricacies showing areas of green and ruddy scale at upper and lower reverse, respectively. A fantastic example of this extremely rare, and little known or studied farthing die combination. <p>Philip Nelson, in his seminal 1905 work on Irish coinage, plated this very example which he attributed to the Marsham, Caldecott and Hoblyn collections, stating it was the only specimen known to him until a second example was recently discovered. Now, over a century later, we trace only three known examples, making this an enduring rarity in the Voce Populi series: this example, plus the 1975 Spence-2018 Archangel specimen graded PCGS MS-63 BN, and a Mint State piece, ex Gilbert Steinberg-Tony Terranova-Joe Lasser that is now at Colonial Williamsburg. This leaves just two examples in private hands, which was the case in Nelsons day! Before the sale of the Spence example in our 2018 sale of the Archangel Collection, it had been a full 35 years since a Small Letters farthing had come to market, which is why Syd pounced on this one when it was offered to him in 2009. <p>.PCGS# 924112.
