Undated (1724) Wood’s Hibernia Pattern Farthing. Martin 4.1-F.1, W-unlisted. Rarity-7. Bath metal. SP-64 (PCGS).90.5 grains. Probably the finest known example of this type, the only Mint State example certified by PCGS and one of just two extant considered Uncirculated. Glossy and lustrous golden brown, more olive gold on the obverse, evenly mellowed on the reverse. Extraordinarily sharp and attractive with superb detail on both sides. The obverse shows a couple of little spots, including one at E of DEI and another at the bust truncation. Two circles of golden discoloration are seen at the rim adjacent to Britannias shield. The edges are neatly filed circumferentially, a painstaking manual process that suggests why cast Bath metal planchets may not have been used for this coinage beyond the small number of this variety known.<p><p>The Ford cataloger enumerated 11 of these, but the total known appears to be nine or 10. One (the Norweb duplicate) hasnt been seen in at least 40 years and may be an entry error; conversely, it may have been donated to an institutional collection where modern researchers havent quite found it yet. Of the other 10, the bottom third are well circulated: Norweb:3489 (VG/F), Roper:129 (Fine), "private collection" (Very Fine). The middle tier pieces are in the VF/EF range: Garrett:1264 and lot 49 in our 2001 Americana sale. The best two are close to Mint State: Brand II:951 - 2001 Americana:48 (Choice EF), Spence:703 - 2001 ANA:5028 (Unc). The final two coins on this list were four entries on the Ford sale census, missing the fact that the 2001 Americana and 2001 ANA coins were reappearances of the Brand and Spence coins, respectively.<p><p>Only one new one has been discovered since the 2005 Ford sale: the Craige:146 coin, last sold by us in November 2016 as PCGS AU Details, Bent.<p><p>The Ford cataloger noted that "given its late date and metallic composition, it may properly belong with Woods Rosa Americana series more than his Hibernias," a fair point considering the absence of this composition among the Woods Hibernias otherwise.<p><p>PCGS has graded just four of these: the Norweb coin (G-6), a VF-20, an EF-45, and this one.<p>.PCGS# 965.<strong>To view supplemental information and all items from the Sydney F.
