I agree, it is 'flashy'.

From the picture I see on my screen,
I can't quite figure out this combination patina and luster on such a high condition coin.

Would really love to have a good look at it hand, with an experienced professional by my side, and discuss it at length, and compare it alongside an uncirculated museum example.

I also have a 1787 George 111 shilling in good EF (British grade), the type is included to a list of Proclamations Coins for the British Colony of N.S.W., but it does not provide any guidance for me here.
I consider myself fortunate to be able discuss my own purchases with a close friend, who also has decades of professional experience with British milled coins.

Looks attractive! The 1787 shilling and sixpence are quite often found in high grades. I can't really tell if the surfaces are original from the photo.

Lovely looking piece. Is it a modern repro?

From what I have seen of the "flashy" coins pictured, they aren't right.I say both are cleaned.
Silver tones to a matt,light gunmetal grey unless it is given a whiff of a polishing cloth by grandma.

Something is fishy when a centuries old coin is flashy.

Some folk don't mind polished coins,however try and sell them to a dealer and you will get melt.
The 1/- is very common in natural VF+ and readily available.
This is how a VF+ will tone (albeit without hearts).
A veritable bargain compared to US coins.

I never return anything. Old school. A deal is a deal in my book. The polished coins in my collection remind me to keep a sharp eye before I buy.

A deal is a deal as long as the coin is as described? I am guilty of this myself but you really must ask the questions before purchasing coins these days. I have seen lately even well know dealers not mention any faults the coins have as if to push the onus on the buyer to decide the coins merits from the pictures available. Most pictures are touched up some even doctored. If there is a paper trail of you asking " has the coin been cleaned or polished?" "Has the coin any faults that can't be seen like scratches than don't appear when pictured at a certain angle". You cover yourself to a degree by asking these questions should the coin not fit the "as described". I know we probably all let the cheap purchases go but on expensive items it is a no brainer otherwise you end up with a collection of pretty buttons that resemble coins and are basically worthless. Oh nearly forgot if the answer comes back "never been cleaned by me" run run run your question answered right there
