    Not a clue, but best guess would be client no.640 wants one of these and the other bit could be and/or a price code, vendor and year of purchase. Could be a Baldwin's ticket, in which case 71 could be client number it was acquired from or alternatively it was acquired in 71. I don't know who Baldwin's 71 or 640 are.

    Thanks Rob - looks like Bull downgraded it to R2 in the latest edition, for what it's worth!

    I wasn't just thinking about George V. I think 1887 and 1902 are also generally very well struck. First year of design use new dies. The mint would probably have shown more care.

    Neither do I. Will hopefully get one at some point. I love the first George V portrait and none of my current currency specimens has a fully struck observe. 

    The 1911 proofs are often very nicely toned, due, it is thought by many, to the materials in the box the set came in.

    Discussed and shown before, but here's mine - I think it's truly beautiful
