- The finest graded example by both major third-party grading companies. Graded NGC MS63+, this example is technically finer than the Montagu example, which is considered to be the finest known and has graded PCGS MS63.
- Rated R3, extremely rare. No example was present in the thorough and extensive Slaney Collection.
- With incredible eye appeal, blinding lustre and pristine surfaces this is a top example of a premium issue from the extremely popular commonwealth series.
NGC Mint State 63+. Astounding. Impeccably preserved, with a full, fiery lustre and untouched striation marks. A touch of vibrant, magenta tone in peripheral bloom. Very rare. Single finest graded.
Conjoined shields of St. George and Ireland, within wreath of palm and laurel; mint mark sun above, with no stops; THE · COMMONWEALTH · OF · ENGLAND.
