||Elizabeth I (1558-1603) Halfcrown, S-2583, "1" mm, struck 1601-02, AU50 NGC. A better example of this desirable type. The only defects are a couple of minor scratches on the reverse. The portrait of Elizabeth is surprisingly nice, with a good, even striking showing little wear. The legend is also very struck-up and the planchet itself large enough to show essentially all of the pellet outer-border to the legend. A piece that would fit in well with any collection.
