Historically these coins are considered a Colonial US piece since SO many of them were imported into the American colonies to circulate since we had no coinage of our own at the time and coins were in short supply in England and it's colonies. 1723 Wood's Hibernia Farthing. N.7 PCGS MS64. 58.1 gns. A rarely seen error. The obverse and reverse are both pale gray-brown with some traces of original mint color particularly on the obverse above the king's head. Boldly struck off center to the lower left by about 15% with a wide border of extra metal showing at the upper right including what appears to be a cud which had formed on the rim at about 1:15. A few light marks, none really important compared to the significance of the error in this series and the quality of the coin overall. Ex. John J. Ford (Part VII, Stack’s, 18 January 2005), lot 65, purchased from Fred Werner, November 1970; Malcolm Ellis Collection.
