||William III Crown 1695, S-3470, MS64 NGC. 1st Bust, Octavo edge. Truly Mint State and exceptionally choice. This coin glows with 17th-century cartwheel luster, is as well struck as any example the cataloguer can recall seeing, and is beautifully toned in rich shades of golden gray iridescence. The dies were perfectly centered, and the surfaces are fully original. An extraordinary crown of King William, and the first date issued during this reign.
Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
