Description:
Very Rare 1722 Hibernia Farthing
MS63 Brown, Finest of Two PCGS-Certified
Martin 1.1-A.1, Ex: Garrett, Newcomer
1722 FARTH Hibernia Farthing MS63 Brown PCGS. Nelson-2, Breen-168, Martin 1.1-A.1, R.5. 56.6 gn, per Garrett description, where it was cataloged as "Glossy brown Uncirculated with some hints of original mint red. Sharply struck, well centered, and with all details excellently defined. A few small, almost microscopic, evidences of planchet roughness as made, such as above the first I of HIBERNIA. Exceedingly rare issue. It is believed that only four to six specimens exist."
The 1722 D:G:REX farthing with harp on left is very rare, although one would never know it from the humdrum prices listed on page 42 of the 2008 Guide Book. PCGS has certified just two pieces in all grades, with the present example as the single finest graded. Breen (1988) guessed, "8-10 known." The Taylor example graded Good to Very Good. We can find no previous Heritage auction appearances.
