Description

Charles II (1660-85), Two Guineas, 1678/7, the 8 struck over a 7, second laureate bust facing right, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend reads CAROLVS.II. DEI. GRATIA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, sceptres in angles, four interlinked Cs at centre, date either side of top crown. Legend reads, MAG. BR. FRA. ET. HIB. REX., 16.71g (Schneider 433; MCE 40; S.3335).

Attractively toned with a proof like brilliance, some metal striations on reverse, pleasing extremely fine.

Two guinea pieces have seen positive price increases in the last ten years but have yet to hit the dizzy heights of five guineas. As a result there could be plenty of potential in the two guinea market and they are still relatively undervalued in comparison to their five guinea counterparts.
