||George II gold 2 Guineas 1738, S-3667B, Young Laureate Head, AU55 NGC. While there is light wear, this coin possesses considerable luster, a sharp portrait, and lovely yellow gold color. A tiny flan crack on the obverse from the rim inward at about 8:00, and also visible at about 10:00 on the reverse, is the only real defect. An excellent old-time example of this large gold coin, which, at the time of its issue, was a small fortune in value.
Realized $3,290.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
