One of the better ones I have. Unsure of the UK grade, gVF maybe.

That coin is at least a good EF, with mint lustre appearing mostly intact. just some slight rub on the very highest points.

Excellent example.

Exceptional coin for this series; museum quality.
Excellent luster and and toning. I will go so far as to not call it a 'patina'.

With British coins that have no wear, I find it easier to go into the Sheldon grading system, because the numbering system is a little more defined and precise.

There may be some tiny nicks under the toning, but if they exist I can't see them in the pictures, so I will assume there aren't any, but a couple of tiny rim nicks. Slight staining on the '11' (1 o'clock obverse).

MS63.

Lovely coin. UK EF, possibly even a little better.

Very suave piece... more luster (American, not Brit. red 'lustre') than the 1737, though I like those Young Head pieces better.

This probably slabs at 58, yeah?

One caveat - how distracting is that dark patch on/near the ordinal?

Slabbed at 64 by PCGS. The dark patch isn't all that distracting in hand, if it had to have a spot, it's in the right place on the coin.
