Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 39 Jul-2020 W-12810, Breen-147, Martin 4.20-C.4. with the obverse legend DEII. This is a very illusive variety, called Rarity 5, and this one is tied for FINEST graded at PCGS. Struck in accordance to a royal warrant ratified in July 1722 by William Wood, these were struck for use in Ireland but because they were struck at the same time as William Woods' Rosa Americana coinage and had sporadic use in colonial commerce, they have popularly been collected in the United States by colonial collectors. Pleasing, medium brown surfaces are hard and free of any environmental issues that often plague these colonial era coppers. Well struck and very pleasing! PCGS 2, NGC 0. The typical survivor is very low grade and problematic. NONE are graded finer at PCGS and the NGC population data does not break out by variety. The current PCG Price Guide value is listed at $1,500. An important opportunity for any advanced collector. Cert. Number 20677818 PCGS # 155
