    1723 Hibernia Farthing, MS64
    Struck in Silver, W-12500

    1723 Hibernia Pattern Farthing, Silver, MS64 NGC. M. 3.2-Bc.10, W-12500, R.5. 11 harpstrings. More than a million Hibernia farthings were struck in "Bath metal," similar to copper. Silver pieces are much rarer, and their purpose is unknown. Per Breen, a group of 20 specimens were found in England in 1971. Four die pairs are known, but a majority of examples are from the present die pair. This is a sharply struck near-Gem draped in gunmetal-gray toning. The fields are semiprooflike, and no detractions are apparent. Listed on page 39 of the 2022 Guide Book. Census: 1 in 64, 3 finer (6/21).
