1724 Wood's Hibernia Farthing. Martin 3.20-D.1, W-12600. Rarity-7. AU-50 (PCGS). 57.8 grains. A deep golden-brown example of <em><strong>a rare die combination</strong></em> with both sides nicely centered and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. No serious circulation marks are present though we must note some natural planchet marks on the reverse. A planchet void, as struck, is seen in the exergue below Hibernia's figure, and a long but shallow planchet furrow runs from the left upright of the H upward to Hibernia's knees. The appearance here of this elusive die combination affords the specialist or advanced type set collector an opportunity to add a Wood's Hibernia farthing of great importance to his or her collection.
