1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.59-Gc.4, W-Unlisted (W-13120 for similar type). Rarity-3. AU-53 (PCGS).

108.3 grains. The deep golden-tan surfaces are choice and mark-free to the unaided eye though low magnification picks up some clinging detritus within the legends on both sides. The centering is perfect and the devices are fairly sharp all around.

PCGS#: 180

Pedigree: From the Ted L. Craige Collection. Purchased August 6, 1966 from an unnamed source. Paper envelope with attribution notation included.
