    1723 Hibernia Halfpenny, MS65 Brown
    Martin 4.34-Gb.3

    1723 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS65 Brown NGC. M. 4.34-Gb.3, W-13120, R.2. Widely circulated in Ireland, and to a lesser extent in the American colonies, the vast majority of 1723 Hibernia halfpence show varying signs of wear, and high-end Mint State pieces are rarely encountered. NGC has awarded Gem status to just six examples in all color designations, with only one numerically finer (4/14). This representative displays bold central detail, with perfectly smooth, glossy auburn surfaces. The preservation and eye appeal are exceptional, with tinges of copper-red remaining in the protected regions.

    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.
