1173 Crown 1965 Satin Finish Specimen striking ESC 393O, Bull 4341, Davies 2301M. Excessively rare rated R5 by Bull and R6 by the 1992 ESC. This example in an NGC holder and graded SP67. The NGC Top Population coin, and the finest known example across three major grading companies. At the time of writing, our research has uncovered 11 examples graded by third party grading companies, some entries which may be duplicated. LCGS has graded 4 examples, in grades 82, 88 (2) and 90. PCGS has graded 3 examples, all SP65, and NGC has graded 4 examples SP62, SP64 (2) and this superb SP67 example. The fields display an even shimmering satin lustre, and displaying the die polish lines associated with this type under strong magnification, a key indicator of this excessively rare type. A wonderful example and would be a centrepiece coin in any advanced Crown collection. We note an example of this type sold in London Coins Auction A166 1/9/2019 described as 'nFDC with underlying brilliance' sold for £5500 hammer price £5,000 - £6,000
