Great Britain. Gold Proof Half Guinea, 1787. George III. S-3735. WR-130. Plain edge. 5th laureate bust of the king, called the "Spade" style because of the shape of the reverse shield, resembled a shovel's head. Very scarce. Mintage unknown. Some light abrasions. Pleasing yellow-gold. Frosted contrast on the shield and reverse legend. Struck in higher relief than the currency issues of this style, thus a better "presentation" of the style. NGC graded Proof 63.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.
The Cheshire Collection.

Realized $2,760
