Nice Mint State Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny

SOLD

Details

1723 Wood's Hibernia halfpenny. Martin 4.15-Gc.37a. Mint State. A choice brown Uncirculated example, with strong lustre and frosty surfaces. A couple little marks are noted, of which only the old horizontal dig under the bust truncation is notable. Mostly well struck, excellent eye appeal. This variety is one of the more interesting ones in the Martin corpus (and one of the only ones where the description of one of the dies runs to two pages). The obverse is easily identified by the large arc crack to the left. The reverse suffers from cracks and spalling, some of which was polished out of the die in a later state, leaving the two stops after 1723 (seen here) as only one stop on later pieces. The web of exergual cracks also diminishes later. As a pure type coin, this is highly attractive. It ably represents a type that, though Irish by origin, has been reasonably adopted into the American canon based upon its readily documented ubiquity in colonial America.
