From the Andrew McCabe Collection.

Unusually complete reverse with fine style portrait. This coin came from an old English collection, for which I have not identified any provenances in the usual classic auction resources, but other coins from the same source had dateable provenances from 1930s to 1950s. [Andrew McCabe]
