    A Most Attractive Proof Crown of 1732

    George II Proof Crown 1732, S-3686, Young laureate Bust, Roses & Plumes reverse, plain edge, PR58 PCGS but, despite the slight rub and a few scattered marks, a choice example of this early proof issue, with an excellent even bold strike on both sides, high rims of consistent quality comprised of elongated beads or denticles, slightly reflective surfaces (whereas commercial issues are never remotely mirrored), and a quite pleasing, bright two-tone silvery gray toning with hues of blue. The reverse is entirely free of marks. The obverse has one notable abrasion on the king's throat and another in the field opposite his chin; otherwise there are just tiny marks from years and years of handling. The coin is, after all, 280 years old. An important rarity from the early Georgian Age.
