Description 1722 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny, Type One, Harp Left AU53 NGC. M. 3.1-Bb.3, W-12690, R.5. Three major types are known for the 1722 Hibernia halfpence, one with what is generally described as rocks behind the seated figure, and the other two differentiated by the placement of the harp. The Harp Left variant is the most plentiful of the three, though is itself scarce in all grades. This piece displays nearly complete detail, with smooth, problem-free surfaces, and rich reddish-brown patina over each side. A prominent die crack is seen on the lower obverse below the bust, characteristic of a late die state. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $558.13. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
