1723 Wood's Hibernia Farthing. Martin 1.1-Bc.1, W-12240. Rarity-5. D:G:REX. MS-64 BN (PCGS). 56.64 grains. This is a very early die state of this obverse, with the letters and devices all crisply defined. On the reverse the faint crack through NIA 1 is present, and the harp strings extend into the wing as noted in the Martin reference. Splendid color and quality for this issue, free of any porosity or detrimental corrosion. Fully struck as well and a coin with considerable eye appeal, likely condition census for the variety and probably high in that select group.
