1724 Wood’s Hibernia Halfpenny. Martin 4.36-L.4, W-13750. Rarity-7. Silver. Specimen-25 (PCGS).115.9 grains. An extreme rarity in the series, one of just a handful of silver 1724 Woods Hibernia halfpence known, coined from a die pair known only in this composition. This piece was lovingly cataloged in our (Stacks) 2005 Ford sale as follows:<p><p>A really rather attractive example of this grade rarity. The obverse is toned in pale gray with iridescent gold and deep blue around the rims. The reverse is a lovely combination of light gray and gold with an area of deep blue below the exergual line. There is a complete border of denticles visible on both sides with extra metal showing on the obverse at the upper right. Clearly struck from an obverse die that was beginning to fail, the obverse surface of the struck coin appears raised. The piece was clearly carefully preserved throughout its life and may have been a well treasured pocket piece. There are a couple of very light, shallow marks on Georges neck and truncation, none really important. <p><p>"Extremely rare: missing from the Norweb, Garrett, and Roper sales. Taxay (C357) thought it was unique. Nelson reported a silver proof N.11 and the specimen in Oxfords Heberden Coin Room makes only the third known in silver. There are no published census figures for this rarity so statements about it are speculative. The cataloguer suspects, however, that there are fewer than 10 surviving in silver and probably fewer than five.<p><p>The current cataloger (JK) guesses the population is lower still, considering this and Nelsons appear to be the same. All the pieces in Ford were pedigreed, via Boyd, to an acquisition from Edgar H. Adams in 1914 and are notated the same way on Boyds ticket: "Phillip Nelson." It seems more than likely that Adams acquired all these gems from that source at the same time. In the interval between this coins last appearance nearly two decades ago and now, no other silver 1724 Woods Hibernia halfpenny has appeared, either on the market or in a collection. <p>.PCGS# 921509.<strong>To view supplemental information and all items from the Sydney F.
