Description:
Amazing 1724 Hibernia Halfpenny, MS65 Brown
1724 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS65 Brown NGC. Breen-166. The 1723 Halfpenny is the usually encountered Hibernia issue. The 1724 is considerably more difficult, and is rarely found with the quality of the present unabraded Gem. Golden-brown fields cede to glimpses of original Red within the legends and devices. Crisply although not fully struck, minor mint-made planchet flaws (in the field near the chin on the reverse and along the obverse edge) are all that limit the grade. As of (12/07), NGC has certified only eight examples of the 1724 Halfpenny. Five are in VG to VF grades, one is certified AU53, and the present Gem grades 12 points finer as MS65 Brown. A solitary MS65 Red and Brown is also certified by NGC. Of note to variety collectors of the Hibernia series, HIBERNIA and DEI GRATIA are widely spaced, and a stop is present after the 4 in the date. The E in REX is recut east, and the final A in HIBERNIA is centered slightly right of the hair bun. Listed on page 43 of the 2009 Guide Book.
Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 12/2005), lot 4, which realized $11,500.
