Graded "UNC details - cleaned", it has never been cleaned or wiped. This was a unique BU issue from the Royal Mint struck in 0.500 silver and, like online images of other examples, has the appearance of extensive die polish hairlines.across the fields on both sides of the coin. One example graded by NGC as MS 68 that sold on Ebay has a similar appearance with hairlined fields. The TrueView images were taken with lighting usually used for proof issues, resulting in matte-like images. The coin is actually more like a glossy BU issue in hand as seen in the second photo.

1953 1/2 Cr S-4137 PR66 PCGS #676785

Extremely rare I of "DEI" to space proof variety obtained by chance through a raw 1953 set purchased on eBay.
