    1723 Silver Hibernia Farthing, MS63
    Martin 3.2-Bc.10

    1723 FARTH Hibernia Pattern Farthing, Silver MS63 PCGS. CAC. M. 3.2-Bc.10, W-12500, R.5. The silver 1723 Hibernia farthings are among the most sought-after and elusive varieties in the series, existing in just enough numbers to be marginally obtainable for the patient specialist. Considered to be patterns by some, the coins are more accurately described as specimen strikings, though they have been certified as Mint State and proof, as well. This piece is from Martin's dies 3.2-Bc.10; the obverse die was also paired with reverse Bb.1 and Bd.1, while the reverse was likewise also mated with obverse 3.13, though this silver issue is by far the most sought-after use of both dies. This example displays bold design definition and beautiful semiprooflike mirroring in the fields. Rich teal and amber-gold accents are seen periodically around the borders while a faint blush of lavender-gray color warms each side, most notably on the reverse. Overall, this is a highly attractive example of this scarce silver farthing. Listed on page 44 of the 2015 Guide Book. Population: 10 in 63, 14 finer (6/14).
    From The Palos Verdes Collection. (NGC ID# 2AT7, PCGS# 179)
