1645 Charles I Worcester Mint Halfcrown
Charles I (1625 - 49) Worcester Mint, Halfcrown, undated, no mm., large well-centred horseman, no ground-line or w below, rev. crowned oval shield, rampant lions in legend, (S 3100; N. 2592; Bull 669/18, this coin; Allen C-18; SCBI Brooker 1149 ) weight 14.44grams
Despite the striking split a very presentable example of this very rare issue with the rampant lions in the reverse legend. Very fine, with a strong pedigree and the plate coin in Bull.
