Miller Sale Plate Coin

Very attractive glossy medium brown and light chocolate blending to darker chocolate brown in protected areas. Sharply struck and nicely centered on the planchet. The notable defects are a small planchet void in the center of the obverse, another on the fleuron right of the shoulder, and some microscopic striations on the lower part of Britannia (all as struck). A tiny rim nick at the top of the obverse can help identify this piece. A premium example of a tough variety, and it comes with a nice provenance. Weight 145.7 grains.
