Aw, c'mon. No other takers? Not like we're betting on the outcome

Nice coin, detail is pretty flat though - Cleaned Very Good, maybe a bit better like Very Good +.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Thanks to all who put their ego on the line
For my Poland OFEY collection, there were no coins minted in Poland proper in 1689. BUT, Courland which was a vassal state of Poland issued this coin, in the name of both the Polish king, Jan Sobieski, and the Duke of Courland, Fiedrich Casimir Kettler. So it's as close as I can get.

This type often shows up with large areas completely lacking in detail, so even this amount is considered a pretty attractive example. However, it's these kinds of results that make me think I know absolutely NOTHING about the process of grading coins:
