Description 1723 FARTH Hibernia Farthing, D:G:REX XF45 NGC. Martin 1.1-Bc.1, W-12240, R.5. This farthing shows the seated figure with harp to the right on the reverse. Dots appear before and after the date. This is a great example of this early variety, for the grade. The deep chocolate-brown surfaces are tinged with hints of intermingled reddish color. Both sides are smooth and unmarked, showing modest wear over the design. A prominent rim bump is noticeable near 12 o'clock on the reverse. The major design elements are all well-struck, leaving uneven definition on the dentils, some of which are off of the flan on the lower obverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $499.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
