Auction 166
English Coins Lot
1731
1689 First Shield, the caul with frosting on the left side bold as normal, the caul on the right side shows only a minimal amount of frosting near the top of the upper crown arch. The interior with full frosting. Crown band with pearls. We note that the inner arch of the crown is only faintly struck on the right side, although the two pearls that attach to the arch are bold and clear. The fleur-de-lis attaching to the crown band is clear and bold with an absence of any frosting around it. In this grade of preservation this type could not possibly be caused by wear. EF with original grey and gold toning, minor haymarks barely detract. This piece a choice and beautiful example of the first type, so will appeal to type and variety collectors alike
