Description

William III (1694-1702), Sixpence, 1697, third bust right, late harp, large crowns, legend surrounding, GVLIELMVS III DEI GRA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, lion of Nassau at centre, four strings to Irish harp, date flanking top crown, reads MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX, (S.3538; Bull. 1233; ESC. 1566).

A brightly toned specimen, clear fields with the faintest of sporadic haymarking, good definition in the portrait. Die flaw running from the neck of King to the first G in legend. Near uncirculated, much eye appeal.
