Description

William and Mary (1688-94), Crown, 1692, conjoined busts right, legend surrounding, GVLIELMVS ET MARIA DEI GRATIA, toothed border both sides. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, WM monogram in four angles, Lion of Nassau struck at centre surrounded by eight small billets (lozenges), encased in a frame of four wavy cords, date as a separate numeral below each monogram, eight strings to Irish harp, reads MAG BR FR ET HI REX ET REGINA. Edge inscription +DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI QVARTO. (S.3433; ESC. 83; Bull 822).

Evenly toned steel grey patina, the conjoined busts comprehensive, Mary especially well struck up, a slight weakness in the high points as a result of adjustment marks, leading up to the legend. Reverse, corresponding weakness to the obverse in the lower French shield, with some natural haymarking. Edge inscription mildly out of kilter but legible, a classic case of collars shifting. Good very fine, very well struck up in the main.
