Nice coin, with some nice luster to go with it. Well struck reverse:- the lions' faces are visible.

Obverse: A tiny, but obvious amount of wear on the high points of the design, notably on the veil above the shouder and the jewel on the bodice (chest area). A ding in that area as well.
Small die crack noted in the lettering above the head.
EF ( British grading

Reverse: Lots of high points in the design have acted together to protect the overall design
n Unc (nearly Uncirculated) (British grading)

Cat. value: around 55.


I have an almost complete silver type set of all British and British Commonwealth Countries Florins - about 45 different design types. Has taken me about 15 years to get thus far.

I would say aEF reverse, some flattening on high points of veil, light wear on the Queens hair

Obverse - gEF - some light wear on shield rims, wear on the crown (Second and third pearls slightly indistinct)

Overall a beautiful coin and one of the best seen in a while.

Agree with sel, but think his grading slighty generous.
