This specimen was lot 22789 in Heritage sale 3010 (Boston, August 2010), where it sold for $431.25. The catalog description[1] noted, "George V Wreath Crown 1933, XF and exceptionally nice for the grade, toned." This type was struck 1927-36 in very limited numbers and is expensive today; the commemorative crown of 1935 was minted in larger numbers than the entire type added together. This type was the last issued for circulation; all British crowns issued since have been commemoratives.
