We have just bought a hoard of 1942 World War II Farthings in Uncirculated condition.
They were issued under King George VI and all have part original lustre. They were
put away at the time, but have mellowed over the past 76 years. No wear just a gentle mellowing
of the lustre.
1942 was at the height of the Second World War and the Farthing with the wren on it, was
the smallest denomination issued at the time. They are struck in bronze rather than copper
and have the bare head of the King on the obverse. Normally we would charge considerably
more for this coin, but if we make a good buy, then our customers make a good buy. It
is only fair that way.
So for this issue only, or until sold out, you can own a 1942 King George VI Farthing in
Uncirculated condition and at this price; we think they are very attractive to the collector.
