    1723 Hibernia Pattern Silver Farthing, XF45
    W-12500, Ex: Eliasberg Collection

    1723 FARTH Hibernia Pattern Farthing, Silver XF45 PCGS. M. 3.3-Bc.3, W-12500, R.5. Ex: Eliasberg. This lightly circulated pattern farthing in silver shows attractive toning and slight high-point wear. This is one of the 11 Harpstrings varieties. These seldom appear in any grade but Bowers' Colonial Encyclopedia notes that "this is the most available silver striking in the Woods Hibernia series."
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 33, which brought $1,540, a considerable sum at that time.
