Description 1723 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS64 Red NGC. M. 4.14-Fb.2, W-13470, R.4. Only six examples of the non-overdate 1723 Hibernia halfpence have been awarded a Red designation by NGC and PCGS combined, and all grade MS64 (4/14). Many varieties exist, including pieces with 10, 11, and 12 harp strings, and varying numbers of reverse dots. This piece represents the 11 strings variant, with three dots seen on the reverse before and after HIBERNIA and the date. A soft cartwheel effect illuminates the coppery-red luster of this beautifully preserved representative. The strike shows some minor incompleteness in the centers, though the overall visual appeal is exceptional. Ex: A.H. Baldwin & Sons, Ltd.; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,993.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
