Description:
Large Flan Triple Unite without Scarf
Charles I gold Triple Unite 1643, S2727 type without scarf, Schneider-299, plume mm with lower bands (#103), Oxford mint, AU50 PCGS, large roundish flan and centered dies for a nice sharp appearance, although this coin was once gently cleaned and shows some minor digs, also a faint crack and a small file mark (V-shaped) above the obverse mm. While these are technically detriments, they are also very typical of large gold coins of this era, which after all were struck essentially for the king to pay his many expenses and his army during the horrific Civil War, which began in earnest in 1643-44, so small faults such as are visible here should really be both expected and to some extent excused, and perhaps should be best reflected by the price of a piece, not its technical grade. If you are interested in a high-value representative coin right out of this troubled period (used to pay the king's own military needs), want a good, large portrait of King Charles, and value a fairly well-detailed "Declaration" legend which scrolls across the reverse of this issue, perhaps this coin is for you. It's an impressive piece of early British numismatic gold. This coin has it all, fascinating history and real value! One of only two pieces certified by PCGS, this being the higher certified of the two.
