Description 1723/2 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny XF40 NGC. M. 3.4-Db.1, W-12850, R.3. Martin lists four varieties of the 1723 over 2 overdate, two of which are decidedly rarer than the others. This piece represents one of the more often seen varieties, but is still itself rare. The surfaces exhibit rich burgundy patina, with only faint signs of verdigris seen in the crevices upon close examination. The strike is sharp, with only slight wear seen over the high points, and the overall visual appeal is pleasing. The upper-right curve and tail of an underlying 2 is plain immediately to the right of the 3 in the date. 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 @ $10.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $270.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
