1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.34-Gb.3, W-13120. Rarity-2. AU-58 BN (NGC).
Somewhat glossy and lustrous throughout the deep chestnut-brown surfaces; some steel-brown toning is seen. Free of niggling little marks that engage the eye, even under low magnification. The strike is fairly bold, with only some even wear on the high points diminishing the overall effect. Choice for the grade, undeniably so, and worthy of strong bidder response.
