Description

Anne (1702-14), Crown, 1707, post-union issue, second draped bust facing left, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend reads ANNA DEI GRATIA. Rev, post-union crowned cruciform shields, plain angles, nine strings to Irish harp, garter star at centre within sunburst, date flanking top crown, legend surrounding MAG BRI FR ET HIB REG, with stops after FR and ET, edge inscription +DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI SEPTIMO (S.3601; ESC.104; Bull 1344 ; Obv E/Rev 4).

Attractive steel toning with a subtle iridescence. Portrait first-rate, flawless level of detail in the hair striations, a textbook example of the second post union bust. The slightest of adjustment marks in the TIA of GRATIA, very sporadic and faint haymarking adding to the allure. Reverse, boasting mirrored fields giving the piece a prooflike appearance; most probably as a result of highly polished dies being used. This date being the first of the pieces embodying the act of union with Scotland, with new style reverse shields in place. Uncirculated, a majestic example, rare in this grade.
