Description

George II (1727-60), Two Guineas, 1738, young laureate head left, legend surrounding, GEORGIVS II DEI GRATIA, stop behind leaf tips. Rev, crowned quartered shield of arms, seven strings to the Irish harp, eight hearts in the Luneburg arms, date either side of crown, legend reads, M.B.F.ET.H. REX. F.D.B.ET.L.D.S.R.I.A.T.ET.E, (S.3667B; EGC.568; MCE.291; Schneider 570/-).

A fully centred strike with light gold toning, some adjustment marks synonymous with the type, all the details pleasing, some wear in the die presenting in a soft spot to the crown region of King’s hair, few toning spots. Rev, mirrored around periphery, a little fade in centre of the coat of arms, all from the initial strike. Graded and encapsulated by NGC as mint state 62, comprehensive extremely fine. A great representation of the type, becoming gradually more popular both domestically and on the international stage.
