    Well Preserved 1724 Hibernia Halfpenny MS62 Brown PCGS

    1724 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS62 Brown PCGS. Period After Date. Breen-166. A lovely, glossy-brown example, which appears to be uncleaned and original, in addition to being marvelously well preserved. There are noticeable die clash marks (as struck) on the obverse portrait, and one small contact mark on the cheek. Underlying red mint luster shines through unevenly on the reverse, where the prevailing color is still brown, and the surfaces seem undisturbed by contact or handling marks. A spidery die crack (as struck) extends from above the letter E, in HIBERNIA, to just past the letter A. 1724 coins are many times rarer than 1722-23 pieces, and this is one of the finest survivors. It's strike is exceptionally high and full at the centers.
    From the Wesley Van Olden Collection of Colonial Coinage. (NGC ID# 2ATH, PCGS# 190)
