British Coins, Charles II, hammered coinage (1660-1662), first issue, unite, mm. crown, laur. bust l., without mark of value, rev. crowned oval garnished shield, CR at sides, wt. 9.07gms. (S.3301; N.2753), certified and graded by PCGS as Mint State 62, an exceptionally fine example of the transitional coinage made just prior to the introduction of the milled coins, the flan essentially perfect with no cracks or flaws, the toothed rims unusually full and well detailed, the royal portrait generally bold though lacking in fine details on the face due to striking, reverse well centred and sharp except for an area to left of the shield, the legends clear and well detailed, and the surfaces free from abuse while retaining considerable lustre, certainly one of the finest known
