Description: Wood's Hibernia
Gem Unc. 1723 Wood's Hibernia Farthing D:G: REX. Type
1723 Wood's Hibernia Farthing. "D:G: REX." Type. 11 Harp Strings. Whitman-12240. Gem Uncirculated.
Rarity-5. This Wood's Hibernia Farthing "D:G: REX." type is a lovely Mint State example having perfect centering on both its obverse and reverse sides. Its natural chestnut-brown color is highly attractive and the strike is sharp in detail. The glossy smooth highly lustrous surfaces are free of marks or detractions with just a trivial faint hairline on the reverse. It is a Prototype design for Wood's Hibernia Farthing coinage. See: Sydney F. Martin's reference "The Hibernia Coinage of William Wood, 1722-1724," where he also suggests that the 1723 dated pieces of this type may have actually been struck prior to those dated 1722. A beautiful example of this major listed type as listed on page 46 of the 2017 Red Book. Ex: Anthony Terranova, (March 1982) according to the consignor with his handwritten holder.
