Desirable Specimen-65 1723 Hibernia Halfpenny
Martin 4.17-Gc.22, Beaded Cincture

1723 1/2P Hibernia Specimen Halfpenny SP65 Brown PCGS. Martin 4.17-Gc.22, R.3. The E in REX is clearly repunched, and a die crack connects the tops of BERN in HIBERNIA. One of Breen's "beaded cincture" varieties, but as Sydney Martin writes, "[the] closely spaced small beads ... take on the appearance of a rope belt." Although designated as Brown, this well struck example has strong claims to Red and Brown status, since the obverse is 50% red and the reverse is about one-third red. The open fields and device highpoints have toned medium brown. An unabraded Gem with prooflike fields. Rarely seen in specimen format. Listed on page 43 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 3 in SP65 Brown, 1 finer (3/08).
From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three. (NGC ID# 2ATE, PCGS# 196)
