M676, S-3807, ESC-2358. Reeded edge. Simply immaculate, a term we use rarely and when wholly warranted as the piece at hand most certainly does. The inaugural 1/2 Crown of George IV's reign, and one that the engraver painstakingly and masterfully executed. Through an exacting strike, the piece at hand is fully embossed upon the specially prepared planchet beneath, each detail fully rendered as was intended, revealing notably frosted devices upon the steely, mirrored canvas. The reverse face is especially strong in its composition, the exceedingly meticulous crowned arms framed by the symbols of the Kingdom: the rose, thistle, and clover. With the coin's advanced state of preservation and coveted "Cameo" superlative, we note this piece is the single-finest Proof 1/2 Crown of either edge variety.
