William IV, 1830-1837, Silver Crown Proof, 1831
KM-715, S-3833, 27.92 grams, 38mm. Portrait of William facing right, WW on truncation of bust, GULIELMGUS IIII D: G: BRITANNIAR: REX F:D:, reverse: elegant crowned and draped royal shield designed by J.B. Merlen, ANNO 1831 below. Only 100 pieces were originally minted, few remain today, especially as nice as this example. Delicate reddish-golden and gray toning amply blankets each side of this untampered-with survivor. Nicely reflective fields and frosted devices. A few parallel handling marks are mentioned on the King's neck, however, these are all but obscured by the toning. Choice to Gem Brilliant Proof
