1051553 | GREAT BRITAIN. George III. (King, 1760-1820). 1805-SOHO AR Restrike Pattern Penny. NGC PR67✭ UCAM (Ultra Cameo). By William J. Taylor. Laureate, draped, and cuirassed bust right, K :· on truncation of arm / Britannia seated left on rocky outcropping with SOHO, holding olive branch and trident; Union shield to right; K between trident and shield; in background to left, ship under sail right on sea. Peck 1293.

Produced from the original Soho Mint dies after the mint's closure in 1848; Taylor produced but a handful of each pattern type, few of which can be truthfully dubbed 'restrikes' due to their die-combinations never having been produced prior to Taylor's efforts. This present piece is one such pattern, as no currency Pennies were produced in 1805, and indeed the 1805 dated reverse die is one produced by Taylor himself by modifying an earlier type. An exceedingly rare type in silver and certainly the finest known. Awarded the star designation by NGC for exceptional eye appeal.
