Beaded rim - earlier type. Nice coin not outstandingly rare though.

Condition gF to VF

Probably $10 of value there!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Yes - not too many varieties to play with - Beaded border both sides, listed as Obverse 1, Reverse A, Freeman 496.

Beaded borders were used on all the new GB bronze coinage early in the issue in 1860. It was quickly superseded by toothed border varieties, of which there are many. The real rarities are the mules - beaded one side, toothed the other.
