1713 gold 1/2 Guinea Anne NGC MS63
KM527, S-3575, Schneider-Unl. Commendably well preserved for this conditionally fleeting fractional Guinea issue, and tied for the second finest against only a single more highly certified example (the Norweb specimen) across both NGC and PCGS combined. A turn of the wrist unleashes shimmering brilliance that sweeps over the fields, highlighting a praiseworthy level of preservation, which appears entirely unencumbered by any meaningful marks or distractions. A firm strike yields fine detail in Anne's hair and features, with the reverse design decidedly bold in appearance, save for a single spot of striking softness in the shield immediately below the date. Very Rare.
