Description

George I (1714 27), Two Guineas, 1720, 20 struck over 17, laureate head right, toothed border both sides, legend reads GEORGIVS DG MBFE ET HIB REX F.D. Rev, crowned cruciform shields with emblematic sceptres in angles, incorporating the Arms of Hanover, garter star in sunburst at centre, nine strings to harp, date either side of top crown, reads BRVN ET L DVX SRIATH ET EL, edge grained (S.3627; EGC 500; MCE 243).

Well struck with rich bloom across surfaces, some wear or annealing to the high points. Good very fine some, rarer with the overdate. Much eye appeal.
