    1722 Hibernia Farthing, MS65 Brown
    Condition Census Martin 1.1-A.1

    1722 FARTH Hibernia Farthing MS65 Brown NGC. M. 1.1-A.1, W-12200, R.5. Rich auburn-brown surfaces retain traces of original mint red in the protected areas of this glossy and fully lustrous Gem, with faint striations and a planchet fissure from the rim at 8:30 on the obverse, running through the reverse as made. The surfaces are free of distractions and display overall exceptional preservation. Both sides are satiny with reflective fields.

    The 1722 Hibernia farthing is a distinctive, single variety type with the harp to the left, the only occurrence of the First Type as listed in the Guide Book. This reverse die is found only with the 1.1 obverse, and the variety is scarce in all grades. This sole variety is a must for type collectors and specialists alike. The Eric P. Newman specimen ranks among the finest of only five or six Mint State pieces, equivalent to the finer of the Ford examples, and better than the Garrett, Robison, and Norweb coins, the latter called "Proof" but more likely a prooflike Mint State piece.

    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.
