1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.74-Gb.9, W-13120. Rarity-5. MS-64 BN (PCGS).
112.8 grains. This is a late die state with the cud like break at K6 on the base of the obverse and the reverse has extensive crumbling at the top of the letters and die rust in the left field. Mostly steel-brown with a few flecks of brassy-gold noted in the fields. Fully struck throughout, impressive for this later die state. The surfaces are smooth and free of all but a few minor nicks.
Pedigree: From the Ted L. Craige Collection. Paper envelope included.
