Charles I (1625-49), Civil War Issues, Oxford, ‘Declaration’ Half-Unite, 1643, larger crowned and draped bust left extending to the bottom of the coin, value behind, inner and outer beaded borders, legend reads from bottom left CAROLVS DG M BR FR ET HI REX.

Light gold even cabinet toning, noticeably clear fields free from any nicks or severe etches or scratches. Large bold bust, elaborate and detailed in the hair and armour, slight softness in the Kings nose, beard and outer regions of tunic.
