    1722 Hibernia Halfpenny, MS64 Brown
    Martin 3.3-C.1

    1722 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny, Type Two, Harp Right MS64 Brown NGC. Martin 3.3-C.1, W-12810, R.5. An impressive high-grade example of this scarce 1722 Hibernia halfpenny variety, showing the reverse harp to the right of the seated figure, and 11 harp strings. The surfaces are smooth and nearly spot-free with color that appears much more red than brown. Faint die clashing from the dentils seems apparent along the western border of the obverse. Minute pits, as struck, are noted but fail to detract from the near-Gem quality of this piece, the single finest-graded example at NGC (4/14).
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
