Description

Choice Red and Brown 1723/3 Hibernia Halfpenny

1723/2 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.
From The Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage.(#184) (NGC ID# 2ATD, PCGS# 184)
