HIB; REX., rev. long cross fourchee over quartered shield of arms, .CHRISTO. AVSPICE. REGNO, weight 5.78g (Sharp G1/2; Brooker 554; N.2231; S.2800). Once cleaned with uneven patches of tone, otherwise very fine and superior to Brooker's two examples, and a very rare mint mark indeed.
The abbreviated Latin legends translate as on the obverse "Charles by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland"; and on the reverse "I reign under the auspice of Christ."
