1826 PROOF SIXPENCE, George IV, 1820-30. S-3815, ESC-2434, Davies-270. (S) 2.82g. straight-grained edge with a broader rim. Obverse - king as an extra tuft of hair on the face side of the ear, the left side of the R in GRATIA points to a gap between denticles on the rim. Reverse - as for shilling in reduced scale. Both coins are affectionately known as the lion shilling and sixpence. The design was well regarded, and updated versions appeared in issues for Edw.VII and G.V-VI. Both obverse dies are identical to those used to strike the half sovereign. Dark blue grey toned brilliant proof, minor obverse spotting, otherwise FDC and rare.
