This coin is a silver proof of an Irish farthing of George II struck in 1737.

This is the only date in the series for which proof farthings are known. Proofs exist in both copper and silver.

This coin is in Good Extremely Fine (GEF) condition and has no flaws or belmishes - the uneven outer edge is typical of the proofs as they were struck without a collar.

The currency issues of this coin are rare in Uncirculated (UNC) condition and scarce in better than Very Fine (VF) condition.

The proofs of this issue are very scarce and the silver proofs are the scarcer of the two types.
