Description 1722 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny, Type Two, Harp Right MS64 Brown NGC. Martin 3.3-C.1, W-12810, R.5. An impressive high-grade example of this scarce 1722 Hibernia halfpenny variety, showing the reverse harp to the right of the seated figure, and 11 harp strings. The surfaces are smooth and nearly spot-free with color that appears much more red than brown. Faint die clashing from the dentils seems apparent along the western border of the obverse. Minute pits, as struck, are noted but fail to detract from the near-Gem quality of this piece, the single finest-graded example at NGC (4/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,702.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
