Description

Anne (1702-1714), Halfcrown, 1708, Septimo, draped bust facing left, toothed outer borders both sides, legend surrounds ANNA DEI GRATIA. Rev, Post-Union crowned cruciform shields, garter star at centre, eight strings to Irish harp, plumes in angles, reads MAG BRI FR ET HIB REG, date flanking top crown, edge inscription as DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI SEPTIMO, (S.3606; Bull. 1369; ESC 578: R).

Prooflike even steel blue toning with mirrored fields, some flecking and metal stress annealing flaws which normally appear on this exact type. Striking flaw on the Queens profile. Rev, slightly broadstruck, superb intricate details in the shields. Extremely fine, the reverse essentially much as struck, rare.

Ex Mildenhall collection, purchased Baldwin July 1995
