DescriptionGeorge II Proof 1/2 Crown 1746 PR63 PCGS, KM584.2, S-3696, ESC-608. A gorgeous representative of Britain's first Proof set, fully struck with razor-sharp detail to the Proof designs and charming emboldened edge dentils. Having likely sat in high-tier British collections since its production, this piece has accordingly encountered very little handling whatsoever, some light contact marks to George's cheek the sole distraction to what otherwise appears a pristine Halfcrown. The obverse center is handsomely toned a deep red gold transforming to a stark electric blue at the peripheries, the reverse far more subdued with a lazy golden patina playing atop an otherwise argent surface. Remarkably attractive and from an ever-popular set, a coin sure to delight its next owner.
