George II (1727-60), Crown, 1734, Roses and Plumes, young laureate and draped bust left, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend surrounds GEORGIVS II DEI GRATIA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, ten strings to Irish harp, garter star at centre, roses and plumes in alternating angles, date flanking top crown, legend reads, M. B. F. ET. H. REX. F. D. B. ET. L. D. S. R. I. A. T. ET. E., edge inscription DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI SEPTIMO (S.3686; ESC 119: R; Bull 1662).

Struck on a broad irregular flan well known for the issue, light golden underlying lustre in the tone, few unobtrusive nicks and hairlines, slight flecking. Excellent detail in the overall bust, shoulder lion especially bold. Reverse, more or less as struck with the slightest of ghosting in parts of legend. Extremely fine, much eye appeal, a handsome piece, rare.
