Description

William III (1694-1702), Crown, 1695, first laureate and draped bust right, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend reads GVLIELMVS III DEI GRA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, angles plain, Lion of Nassau struck at centre, six strings to Irish early harp, date flanking top crown, reads MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX. Edge inscription +DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI OCTAVO (S.3470; ESC. 87; Bull 991).

Toned, with some minimal flecking both sides, small carbon spot in the breastplate, couple of hairline scratches, deceivingly concise in the hair with a soft strike, classic example of the first bust in the first year of issue. Extremely fine.
