Description

George II (1727-60), Halfcrown, 1750, old laureate and draped bust left, legend reads GEORGIVS II DEI GRATIA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, seven strings to Irish harp, central garter star with sunburst, date flanking top crown, legend surrounds M.B.F.ET. H.REX.F.D.B. ET.L.D.S.R.I. A.T.ET.E, plain angles, edge inscription DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI VICESIMO QVARTO (S.3695; Bull.1692; ESC.609).
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.
