    I like that one a lot! Very nice. 👍
    I find that era fascinating. I don’t have any coins from Queen Anne, but I do have one piece of flatware from 1705 London.

    Nice! Been a while since I’ve owned an Anne. Never had a crown. Did have a guinea, once upon a time.

    Anne Crowns are complicated. There are rare dates, portrait changes, strike quality issues and distractions that include hay marking. This coin really falls into more of a quality for the grade category. The coin graded 45. My tight range was 45-50. The obverse has flatness at the cheek which is somewhat of a death sentence in terms of obtaining an AU50 grade. The obverse carries the grade. The reverse is exceptional. And even though that helps, it simply does not overcome that obverse flatness even though part of that flatness is likely related to the strike.

    This is one of those coins that meets the quality for the grade standard.
