    Rare 1723 Hibernia Farthing in Silver
    W-12500, MS64

    1723 FARTH Hibernia Pattern Farthing, Silver MS64 PCGS. One dot after 1723, Martin 3.3-Bc.3, W-12500, R.5. The Hibernia farthing in silver, once considered virtually unobtainable, is now "merely" rare thanks to the later 20th century discovery of a hoard of the W-12500 pieces. This seems to have fueled collector desire for the variant all the more, especially for high-grade examples such as this near-Gem. The devices are well-defined, and the fields remain strongly lustrous through ample toning. Deep blue and lighter olive-gold shadings show occasional glints of bright silver-white. Listed on page 42 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 5 in 64, 3 finer (11/09).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AT7, PCGS# 179)
