Guinea 1716 Fourth Laureate Head as S.3631 but with Hanoverian Shield at date, the shields and sceptres all rotated by 90 degrees clockwise. Unlisted as such, and internet searches have failed to locate another such example offered for sale. Many silver varieties of this period have shield positioning varieties, however this is believed to be the first such error found on a gold coin of this period. A potentially unique opportunity for the milled gold or Guinea collector. In an NGC holder and graded XF40, with a scratch across the chin, Ex-Goldbergs 5/2/2013 Lot 4900
Guinea 1716 Fourth Bust S.3631 GEF/AU and lustrous with some contact marks and some slight roughness to the rim probably caused in striking, an attractive example of this type, our records indicate this is the finest we have handled of this date
Guinea 1719 S.3631 under magnification there is evidence of an overstrike on the 9 within it's loop, best described as a 'sideways oval' shape almost identical in size to the actual loop but at 90 degrees, Fine and unusual
Guinea 1717 S.3631 Fourth Laureate Head bold Good Fine or better for wear but fields somewhat porous and rim smooth at 12 o'clock as viewed from the edge, much rarer than catalogues suggest and the first time we have offered an example of this date in any grade
Guinea 1719 S.3631 Fourth Laureate Head GVF with some scuffs on the King's face and some adjustment lines in the centre of the reverse, our records indicate we have handled just two of this date prior to this sale so probably scarcer than catalogue values would suggest
