A notoriously rare and difficult coin to source. The early 1st & 2nd Issue  Elizabeth I Coinage is normally well worn and damaged, so to find an example of a 1 or 2 piece in this grade is difficult enough, but to find this particular 'Bust1a' coin in VF is a seriously unusual event. They just never show up.
Slight area of mint 'pre-strike' reduction marking on shield.  

PLEASING VF AND RARE WITH AN EXCELLENT PORTRAIT CLEARLY SHOWING THE 1a BUST VARIETY.
