English Coins : Lot 1504

lot

description

estimate

1504 Half Sovereign 1821 Proof S.3802 UNC retaining much original mint brilliance and touches of red toning in places, the obverse with some light tooling in the field between the King's forehead and D:G:, a true rarity and one-year type design. The reverse by Pistrucci is considered to be one of the classic and most beautiful 19th Century designs. We note the currency coin now lists at £5750, this being rated R5 by Marsh, (estimated 9-14 known) the Proof coin now listing at £8500, a considerably more rare and desirable coin, and seldom offered for sale. Our archive database shows that we have only offered one previous example, this was in November 2003. This type missing from many advanced Half Sovereign collections, one of a number of high grade and George IV gold pieces in this sale £5,000 - £6,000
