George IV (1820-30), silver Proof Shilling, 1826, second bare head left, date below, legend and toothed border surrounding, GEORGIUS IV DEI GRATIA, rev. inverted die axis, crowned lion standing left on large crown over emblems, legend commences lower left, BRITANNIARUM REX FIDEI DEFENSOR, edge milled, (Bull 2411; Davies 232; ESC 1258). Darker tone, a little patchy in places, otherwise practically as struck, has been graded and slabbed by Coin Grading Service UK as UNC88.

CGS UK Certification 13538-SH.G4.1826.03

The Latin obverse legend translates as "George the Fourth by the Grace of God," and on the reverse "King of the Britains, Defender of the Faith."

London Coin Grading Service as it is now termed, claim that grade 88 in their 100 point system is a traditional "Brilliant UNC to near FDC" and equates to an American Sheldon scale of 65-66. This estimation is only one point out from when this coin was formerly physically graded by NGC as PF64.
