1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.74-Gb.11. Rarity-4. MS-65 RB (PCGS). With ample light-orange luster to both sides, this minimally patinated example has superior eye appeal even at the Gem Red and Brown grade level. Expertly centered with a bold-to-sharp strike, both sides also offer freedom from even trivial detractions. The PCGS insert makes reference to a "No Period" variety that does not correspond to a listing in the <em>Guide Book</em>.
