Great Britain. Proof Half Sovereign, 1826. S-3804; Fr-380a; KM-700. George IV, 1820-1830. Issued in the set of this year. Bare Head left. Reverse: Crowned, ornately garnished shield. Superb in all respects, and among the finest pieces we have ever encountered. NGC graded Proof 66 Ultra Cameo.

Mintages in Proof of the sovereign and half-sovereign pieces must have been higher than for the complete set of this year, quite possibly occasioned by requests of the Royal Mint to produce collector pieces for the numerous "gentlemen" accumulators of things ornate, which was so much the rage at this time. Nonetheless this is fairly rare, and truly so in immaculate condition.
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,000.
Ex Dr Jacob Y. Terner Collection.

Realized $7,188
