Charles I, Stuart King 1625-1649

Tower Mint under the king, 1625-1642. Crown mintmark. Shoulder-length, smaller, crowned portrait facing left, wearing lace collar, lovelock on left shoulder; reverse, crowned oval shield with crowned “CR” at sides.

An exceptionally fine example of this variety, on a full broad flan with almost complete legends, the king’s image quite well detailed, lustrous and choice with lovely gold toning.
