1658 Oliver Cromwell Halfcrown
Oliver Cromwell (1649-1658), Halfcrown, 1658, laureate and draped bust left, rev crowned quartered shield of arms of the Protectorate, edge inscribed in raised letters ( S 3227A; ESC 447).
A remarkable survivor of the Commonwealth era. Without question the finest we have seen, with only the faintest of wear to Thomas Simons superbly detailed portrait of Oliver Cromwell. About Uncirculated and virtually like the day it came off of Blondeau's presses in 1658, thus very rare
