Choice Red and Brown 1723/3 Hibernia Halfpenny1723/2 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS64 Red and Brown PCGS. Breen-153. The right half of the underdigit 2 is obvious, east of the Small 3 in the date. A scarce variety that is almost never encountered in better Mint State grades with some remaining red mint color. This near-Gem is exceptional from a technical perspective, as it remains essentially as made, aside from the inevitable mellowing of the fields and portrait to a pleasing chocolate-brown hue. The centers show some softness of strike, barely of notice on the king's jaw but more evident near the waist of the seated lady. Nonetheless, it would prove a Herculean effort to locate another 1723/2 Small 3 Hibernia Halfpenny of similar quality, and the opportunity should not be lost on advanced Early American specialists. Listed on page 43 in the 2006 Guide Book.
