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

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.
