    Single Finest PCGS-Certified
    1724 Hibernia Halfpenny, MS65 Red and Brown

    1724 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS65 Red and Brown PCGS. Martin 4.73-L.2, R.5. Currently, the only 1724 Hibernia halfpenny certified as Red and Brown by PCGS, and also the single finest certified by PCGS. A later die state for both dies than recorded by Martin. Both sides have several light cracks, and the obverse has a relatively large die lump near 12 o'clock. The reverse has a minor and slender lamination between 5 and 6 o'clock, but the preservation is otherwise outstanding. The borders are more red than brown, while the open fields and devices are toned gunmetal-gray. 1724 halfpennies are significantly scarcer than their 1723 predecessors, are generally unavailable in Gem or with substantial remaining red. Listed on page 43 of the 2008 Guide Book.
