Struck with highly polished and well engraved dies, fields prooflike on both sides with consistent detail across all regions. A top tier example with much eye appeal, the King’s portrait, armour and breastplate, hair and general expression all striking and bold. Reverse, equally impressive with subtle amber mottled toning. Much as struck.
