||Commonwealth gold Crown 1653, S-3212, North-2719 (rare), Sun mm, MS63 NGC. Mostly crisp in details and showing luster, this coin has a full, uncracked flan. The central motifs are bold, as are the majority of the letters of the legend, with most of the raised rim in evidence. The last digit in the date is blundered and appears to be die-cut over a 2. An exceptional example of this golden rarity. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.
Realized $11,162.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
