Looks more like circulation cameo to me.

I do recommend that you send Princetane a PM - he is our resident expert on NZ coins.

Just a suggestion - I expect you'd more responses if your photos were visible with your text rather than requiring viewers to click on small icons - this is quite awkward, especially if you're using a phone.

They are visiable with the text, FWIW. I don't use or own a smartphone.

Apologies, radars_teddy - I have just read jBuck's instructions on how to view insecure content on Chrome and have now successfully reset my laptop so I can see your photos!

Cleaned and polished gVF. Good coin, but ruined by bad cleaning.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Shined up in the middle with darkened tone around the lettering where the cleaner did not bother. Polished grey wear on Kings cheek - suggests dipping or wiping with a dabbing cloth, a material like Silvio silver dip.

Believe me I know, I have 30 years experience with the coins of my own country and many people come to me with their coins of NZ for my opinion.

I know I am dating myself, but I do it to protect people from being ripped off, because the NZ series is heavily cleaned (Cleaning is a really bad problem here, many of my coins are cheap because they are cleaned sometime in the past and that is all there is).

Also the NZ silver series before 1947 was 40% copper, 5% Zinc and 5% Nickel and these metals often wore the coin to an ugly green or black/brown colour. Hence as the coins wore, people cleaned them to get back that silver shine.

It was the same in Oz.,Coins were cleaned regulary here up until the mid 1960's,as we moved to Decimal currency and the average Joe became au fait with Coins and not to clean them.

I have a Book from my School days that recommended cleaning to remove grit and grime,i'll post the chapter when I find it,guys on the Stamp Forums couldn't believe it and thought I had written myself.
Edit..found it on an old computer....

I am not doubting you at all. I am just trying to learn from your experience.
