Description 1724 1/2P Hibernia Halfpenny VF20 NGC. M. 8.3-L.2, R.6. This is a rare variety of the final-year Hibernia halfpenny issue, with 11 harp strings and only one dot (or stop) on the reverse, seen between HIBERNIA and the date. Martin lists six sub-varieties, of which this is one is rare. The surfaces of this representative show light, even wear, but are remarkably free of environmental impairments. Smooth, chocolate-brown patina blankets both sides, with moderate detail remaining on the devices. This is an exceptional, problem-free mid-grade example. 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 @ $1.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $411.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
