1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.57-Fa.4, W-13120. Rarity-3. MS-65 BN (PCGS). CAC. This pleasing Gem offers a blend of golden-tan and rose-brown toning with soft luster and plenty of mint orange bloom. The strike is sharp but typical for the issue with essentially full details save for a touch of weakness at the centers. Reverse die break engages BERN, with another at IA. An extra row of saw-toothed dentils runs inside the reverse rim from 3 to 6 o'clock, a diagnostic of this reverse die. Choice for the grade.
