||William III Sixpence 1700, KM496.1, S-3538, ESC-1579, MS64 NGC. Exemplary in every way with a fully impressed strike that leaves William's hair intricately detailed. The surfaces show limited evidence of contact. Most impressive however is the tone that can't help but capture the beholder with vivid lime-green, purple and sunset-gold patina that caresses the devices and propels the eye-appeal to truly elite levels. Unquestionably a gem for the type.
Realized $881.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
