Charles I (1625-49), Ireland, The Great Rebellion, Coinages of the Lord Justices, ‘Ormonde Money’ (1643-4), Halfcrown, beaded outer and inner linear borders both sides. Obverse, large crown above Royal Cypher, pellet between the C and R. Rev, mark of value II Shillings and VI , 14.44g (S.6545; D&F.293).

Near very fine for issue, taking into account its place as siege coinage, struck on a broad flan, evenly toned. Good fine on obverse displaying all the central motifs, a superb reverse with a great depiction of both the numerals letter denominations, within a crisp inner linear circle, rare.

Ex H. M. Lingford, with an accompanying ticket in his hand.
