PCGS AU-50 (illustrated above).  Ex - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "Benson Collection, Part I", February 16, 18-20, 2001, Lot 21, bought back at $460.00, where it was described as follows: "1724 Hibernia Halfpenny. PCGS graded AU-50. Stop after date. Struck from worn dies, the obverse with a light crack through GEORGIU, and a rim crack to the bust point. The reverse die appears to have been lapped, as the central definition is indistinct, and some of the harp strings are played out. Examination makes us uncertain that the color is original, as it remains slightly uneven with hints of mottling. Free of circulation problems or other detractions."

PCGS VF-30.  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, June 9, 2001, Lot 1231, where it was described as follows: "1724 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny, PCGS graded Very Fine-30.  Somewhat "dry" in appearance and in need of a good oiling and brushing. The reverse has some dark colors in the shield and around the seated figure. Variety collectors will be interested in the heavy die break that connects the 1 and the 7 of the date."
