1724 Wood’s Hibernia Pattern Farthing. Martin 5.1-G.1, W-unlisted. Copper. Rarity-9. SP-64 BN (PCGS).79.1 grains. While described in Martin as Bath metal, this appears to be copper, as described in Ford. Choice chocolate brown with glossy luster and attractive frost on both sides. Beautifully struck and centered, with a broad ring of denticles framing both sides. The reverse is so well centered that a perfect ring of unstruck metal surrounds the denticles around the entire circumference. On the obverse, the denticles reach the rim from just left of 12 oclock to about 2 oclock. The central details are magnificently realized, right down to the fingers on Hibernias hand next to her waist. No significant marks are seen, just a thin scratch right of the harp and a spot centered on the bust truncation. The eye appeal is simply lovely, and this piece is a little work of coining art.<p><p>As beautiful as it is, it appears to be just as rare as it is pretty. As noted in Ford, this is "Exceptionally rare: missing from the Norweb, Garrett, and Roper sales. Taxay (C363) thought it was unique and Breen forgot to list it in 1988 (although he had seen and attributed it decades earlier). None sold publicly in nearly a century as far as the cataloguer can determine. Only one other known in this metal, the wide planchet proof permanently impounded in Oxford Universitys Heberden Coin Room." <p><p>Martin agreed and listed it as Rarity-9 in the Woods Hibernia book. <p><p>This piece came with many of the great rarities in this collection as part of a purchase by F.C.C. Boyd from Edgar A. Adams in 1914. These rarities appear to all trace back to the Nelson Collection. Its fitting that so many special coins like this would have a provenance to the first great author on this series as well as to the only collector to surpass his work.<p>.PCGS# 921390.<strong>To view supplemental information and all items from the Sydney F.
