1724 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.67-K.2, W-13690. Rarity-5. AU-55 (PCGS). 118.5 grains. A somewhat glossy deep golden-brown specimen with soft underlying luster and exceptional naked-eye appeal. The devices are strong for the grade with just some even wear on the high points, and the surfaces are essentially immaculate, even when seen under low magnification. Heavy die break at the date obscures much of the 1 and 7, the 1 in particular. Choice for the grade and an altogether pleasing example of a scarce die combination.
