1723 Hibernia Halfpenny, MS64 Red
1723 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS64 Red NGC. M. 4.14-Fb.2,
W-13470, R.4. Only six examples of the non-overdate 1723
Hibernia halfpence have been awarded a Red designation by NGC and
PCGS combined, and all grade MS64 (4/14). Many varieties exist,
including pieces with 10, 11, and 12 harp strings, and varying
numbers of reverse dots. This piece represents the 11 strings
variant, with three dots seen on the reverse before and after
HIBERNIA and the date. A soft cartwheel effect illuminates the
coppery-red luster of this beautifully preserved representative.
The strike shows some minor incompleteness in the centers, though
the overall visual appeal is exceptional.

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.
