    A Stunning Presentation

    Currently the Finest Certified

    George IV Proof Crown 1826 PR66 NGC, Royal mint, KM699, S-3806. Septimo Edge. Mintage: 150. A tremendous specimen from start to finish, presenting sublime, dove-gray patination that evenly coats the surfaces in smokey coloration and a melange of playful, iridescent lilac, champagne, and turquoise hues that reside beneath the tone, illuminating the open fields. A quick flit under the light exposes full reflectivity throughout the mirrors and meticulously-detailed chiaroscuro of the razor-sharp design illustrations. The King's portrait stands elevated above the flash in glorious, satiny display, with each wild curl fully-defined and highlighted with a subtle amount of watery-teal brilliance. The reverse illustration is almost too beautiful for words, with intricate, pinpoint styling that is crisply-rendered at every angle and drenched in a vibrant shower of coppery-blush color. Even under closer inspection, this crown appears flawless, with the only perceivable imperfection coming in the form of a small toning spot to the left of George's mouth. The whole of this masterpiece is currently unmatched--as this is the only example certified in this top designation by either grading service--a true feat as many have fallen just short of this deluxe technical state. Displaying all the hallmarks of a true rarity, this spectacular jewel is worthy of even the most advanced collections of specialized British coinage.
