Description George II Shilling 1727, S-3698, Young Laureate Head, Roses & Plumes reverse, MS63 NGC. A top-notch, lustrous example of this, the first year of issue for the second Hanoverian king, whose portrait here is exceptionally well detailed. A gorgeous bluish gray iridescence is evenly distributed, and is vivid to the appreciative eye, upon nearly unblemished surfaces, only some ancient scuffs in the fields showing under the color. The Roses & Plumes reverse decoration signify that the silver came from the Company for Smelting Pit Coale and Sea Coale. Realized $998.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
