Martin 1.1-A.1, W-12650 variety, considered to be Rarity-6+ with perhaps 15 known in total.
The first issue in the Hibernia series and the only one bearing the distinctive and frankly bizarre rock outcropping on the right side of the reverse (and which this author always assumed was added by the engraver in an attempt to cover up some sort of humungous mistake in the legend).
And this is a very pleasing chocolate brown specimen with lovely surfaces for this grade level.
Ex Bowers’ September 1989 sale of the Norweb Collection, Part III, lot #3423.
