1724 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.67-K.2, W-13690. Rarity-5. EF-45 (PCGS). 108.6 grains. Deep chestnut-brown surfaces exhibit lighter rose-brown highlights on the design high points. Evenly worn and not heavily marked though we must note some detritus among the legends and devices. The heavy die break at 17 in the date makes for a handy reverse die identification. A choice example, for the grade, of a scarce and elusive variety.
