Choice and Well Toned Charles I Half Crown, ca. 1636-38

SOLD

Ex. Randolph Zander.

Details

England. (1636-38) half crown of Charles I. Tun (Tower Mint) mintmark. S-2771. Group III. Nearly Extremely Fine. A particularly well-defined and beautifully toned Charles I half crown. Full legends frame the obverse around a well struck horseman. The reverse legends are also complete, and the shield is well defined. Superb toning of deep gray, blue, and gold covers both sides, with hints of lustre in protected areas. Though not terribly rare as a type, an example this spectacular is tough to find. While hammered English may seem a bit early for American relevance (this coin was struck soon after the first settlement in Maryland), at least a couple of Charles I half crowns have been discovered in American soil (including this one, found in Virginia, part of a substantial cache of hammered English silver discovered on the same site). With choice old collector toning, a good strike, and mark-free surfaces, this piece is just about unimproveable.
