Description

George IV (1820-30), Crown, 1822, laureate head left, B.P. for Benedetto Pistrucci below, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend surrounds GEORGIUS IIII DG BRITANNIAR REX FD. Saint George slaying dragon right, date in exergue, B.P. to upper right of exergue, WWP on ground line below lance for William Wellesley Pole, edge inscription DECUS ET TUTAMEN ANNO REGNI SECUNDO (S.3805; ESC. 251; Bull 2318).

A much scarcer year for the type. Classic amber cabinet toning on good metal, no edge or flan issues, the faintest nicks in portrait and fields, lustrous and clear in the main. A faint toning line running from the A in Britanniar to the G in Georgius, all in the minting process. Reverse, superb and equally as well toned, a very consistent example. Practically mint state, showing off the stately characteristics of this two year type.
