|Service Catalog #||190|
1724 1/2 P Hibernia Halfpenny, Martin 8.1-L.3, W-13730, R.5, AU53 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. An attractive example of a scarcer variety of Hibernia halfpenny. Well centered and struck, this would make a good addition to either a variety or type set. The reverse details are sharp, especially noticeable in the harp, which is often found weak. Rich golden-brown toning is found on both sides. Only a bit of circulation rub can be seen in the high points. The tip of George's bust is doubled on this obverse, which is a diagnostic. Listed on page 47 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $2.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
