Description

Charles I (1625-49), Unite, Tower mint, group A, bust 1a with a flatter single arched crown, mintmark cross cavalry (1625-26) beaded inner linear circles both sides, draped bust with ruff left, value XX behind, legend reads CAROLVS DG MAG BR FR ET HI REX., rev. crowned quartered shield of arms with plainer frame, legend around without punctuation, FLORENT CONCORDIA REGNA, 8.97g (S.2686; N.2147; Schneider 118-119).

Light subtle golden toning with some original mint brilliance around the beaded circles, slight weakness in strike around the periphery a common leitmotif in the series. The portrait, beard, moustache, ruff and first section of the chest area excellent, some wear in the obverse die. Struck on a nice full flan without any edge cracks or nicks, fields also clear. Good very fine for a weakly struck issue.
