Description

Oliver Cromwell (1656-58), Crown, 1658/7, 8 in date struck over 7, by Thomas Simon, laureate and draped bust left, raised die flaw at early stage, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend surrounds OLIVAR DG RP ANG SCO HIB &c PRO. Rev, crowned quartered shield of arms of the Protectorate, date above, legend reads, PAX QVÆRITVR BELLO. Edge inscribed in raised letters, designed by Pierre Blondeau as a way to combat or perhaps safeguard against clipping, *HAS NISI PERITVRVS MIHI ADIMAT NEMO, translating to “Let no one remove these from me under penalty of death.” (S.3226; ESC.10; Bull 240; L&S. 1).

A well-toned example of the first milled Crown, clear fields with an attractive grainy like appeal to the drapery in bust. Reverse, some slight annealing flaws to the lower right of the coat of arms. About extremely fi ne, much eye appeal, underlying mint lustre, scarce.
