Description

William III (1694-1702), Shilling, 1697, third laureate bust right, legend surrounding GVLIELMVS III DEI GRA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, Lion of Nassau at centre within cartouche surrounded by 8 billets, date flanking top crown, reads MAB BR FRA ET HIB REX (S.3505; Bull.1128; ESC.1102).

Light grey cabinet toning with underlying mint bloom, legends clear both sides. Portrait well struck with a clear separation within all of the King’s hair striations, some haymarking. Reverse, few pin prick marks and haymarking, synonymous for the type (if not the reign). Bold very fine, lacking the sharpness and clarity to push it up a grade, nevertheless a fetching example, a great representation of the third bust.
