1852 Adelaide Pound Type II




Australia, 1852 Adelaide Pound Type II -

A fantastic example of this popular issue. This particular specimen has great eye appeal and lots of original bloom. One Sydney dealer who saw the coin before it was uncertified purportedly asked whether the coin would grade Mint State by PCGS! Indeed, it does have the appearance of a low Mint State coin; were it not for the slight rubbing of friction on the high points, the coin would have most certainly graded Mint State—MS61, perhaps. As usual on specimens struck toward the end of the run, the strike is quite shallow and concave. Fortunately, eye appeal is not impaired in any way. Overall, this is an ideal coin for collectors who wish to acquire a nice-looking Adelaide Pound, but don’t want to spend $100,000 to do so. Scarce this nice, and very well-priced.

Grades PCGS AU55.
