    Description

    1723 Hibernia Farthing, MS66 Brown
    Martin 3.3-Ba.1

    1723 FARTH Hibernia Farthing, DEI GRATIA MS66 Brown NGC. Martin 3.3-Ba.1, W-12255, R.2. This variety, exhibiting 9 harp strings, is a spectacular example, in terms of both original production quality and virtually flawless preservation. Much more red than brown, both sides exhibit impressive luster and clean, mark-free surfaces. The design motifs and legends are fully struck, an unusual occurrence on one of these early issues. Only some of the dentils, between 8 and 2 o'clock on the obverse, show less-than-complete definition. Just two of the Dei Gratia coins, including this sub-variety, have been graded at MS66 by NGC, with none finer (3/14).
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AT6, PCGS# 176)

    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.
