Recent acquisition. Pretty decent overall. This series is getting a bit challenging to locate in higher grades. In the US this is easily AU, in the UK not entirely sure. The reverse die was out of alignment when struck, the obverse is centered on the planchet.

This is a GVF UK grade so your example would be around NVF.

Thanks everyone. I find that a realistic challenge (but still a challenge) is collecting this series in UK VF. Overall I would say that is where my collection averages out. Trying to collect all in UK EF is on the extreme side of difficult, not least because of availability in the market. There just isn't a lot of that kind of quality out there.
