1724 Wood's Hibernia Farthing. Martin 3.7-E.1, W-12610. Rarity-6. MS-63 BN (PCGS). Attractive satin smooth surfaces display uniform brown toning on the obverse and reverse. The strike is sharper than average with all the design elements reasonably sharp, including the harp strings and and frame. A thin die crack extends across the lower obverse, dog legging up above the truncation below most of REX, creeping out the rim through the R of that word. This variety is quite rare and the present offering is probably the finest known, currently it is the finest certified by PCGS and alone in the Choice grade.
