1723 Wood’s Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.40-Gc.18, W-12880. Rarity-2. MS-64+ BN (PCGS).122.4 grains. An extraordinary example, apparently last offered in our 1975 Spence sale, where it was cataloged as "Another superb coin that is undoubtedly a Proof. This might even be a pattern as we note a feature that we dont recall having seen on any other specimen of Woods coinage: a belt of beads at the waist of the reverse figure. … Every detail is needle-sharp. Full proof surfaces and a perfect companion piece to lot 707," itself a Proof farthing that was singled out for mention in Breens <em>Proof Coin Encyclopedia</em>. While Syd considered this coin a PL Unc, it is eye-catchingly well struck, remarkably preserved, and distinctively beautiful. The centering is nearly ideal, with just a bit of unstruck area outside the obverse denticles at right. The surfaces are lively medium and chocolate brown with undertones of lustrous gold and pastel blue. No notable contact marks are seen, just some trivial hairlines, and the only area that isnt fully struck up is the denticled border at the top of the reverse. To your catalogers eye, the planchet appears polished, with lines that appear to precede striking visible under a glass. While this may not be a "Specimen" or a "Proof," those terms have never been well defined and the decision line is hazy at best. This piece is certainly distinctive in appearance.PCGS# 921519.
