George II, Hanover King 1727-1760
With EIC hallmark for the East India Company. Young Bust. Struck from gold supplied by the East India Company of London.
A choice and really superior example of this classic rarity, with brilliant luster gleaming through light reddish rose-gold toning, struck with as much detail as can be found on any examples of this issue (the portrait and royal shield both sharp in all features), with only trifling abrasions and a faint short mint-made adjustment through the shield’s center and another through the hair-lock over the king’s ear: a visual delight!
