Charles I (1625-49), Halfcrown, type 1a2, mintmark lis, king on horse left, sword behind shoulder breaking linear circle, no rose on housing, no groundline, legend surrounds CAROLVS DG MAG BR FR ET HI REX. Rev, long cross fourchée over garnished square topped shield, reads CHRISTO AVSPICE REGNO, 14.99g (S.2764; N.2201; Brooker 280).

Considered a rarer type in the series. Struck on a slightly irregular flan, otherwise much eye appeal, pleasant toning, with an exceptional supporting provenance. Near very fine.
