Description George II Halfcrown 1746/5, KM584.3, S-3695A, ESC-607, Lima issue, MS63 NGC. A rare overdate issue struck on Spanish silver seized from Lima, Peru, this coin is far superior to the few others that have sold publicly in recent years. There is relatively good definition to the curls in the hair of the portrait of George, as well as a nice, deep toning across the coin that emphasizes its superior condition. Realized $1,057.50.
