Description:
A Fabulous Early Georgian Pattern Double-Guinea
George II gold pattern 2 Guineas 1733, Young Laureate Head, S-3667, WR-69 (rated R5, 6-10 known), KM-Pn37, plain edge, obverse design by Croker, reverse design not attributed but probably by Tanner, PR63 NGC, a wonderfully choice specimen, amazing quality for a coin that is 280 years old, the image of the king superbly engraved and fully struck showing every minute detail, the reverse shield also fully impressed by the die, each side framed by deep, broad denticles at the rim, while the surfaces glitter with mirrored luster and are flawless other than for light hairlines, with perfect orange-peel texture to the gold, and blessed with gorgeous reddish gold toning. Truly, a coiner's masterpiece -- a major rarity from early in the Milled Coinage period, with stunning eye-appeal and historical importance. Majesty in gold!
