Description 1723 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny MS64 Brown NGC. Martin 4.57-Gc.13, R.3. This is the 11 harp strings, two dots on the reverse type. A plethora of interesting die characteristics are noticeable on both sides of this remarkable near-Gem specimen. These include die rust, die cracks, clash marks, and tiny planchet flaws. Many of the peripheral letters show doubling. None of these mint-made features, most of which are unseen by the unaided eye, inhibit the visual appeal of this conditionally rare piece. Boldly struck and well-centered with some incomplete dentils noted to the left on both sides. There are no abrasions or other post-strike anomalies to concern the potential buyer. 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 @ $4.00; Richard Picker; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $822.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
