About this set: Third farthings were minted to be used in Malta. They were struck to replace the Maltese "grain" which was 1/3 of the weight of a British farthing. Despite their low mintages they can be obtained relatively cheaply. Having said that with the exception of 1902 and 1913, many of the dates can be hard to find in MS grades as a lot of them circulated and not many were kept or collected. Varieties and proofs also exist. To view and learn about many other British coins take a look at www.CoinsGB.com
