BRITISH MILLED - WILLIAM III - SHILLING - 1697 - TRANSPOSED SHIELDS

Dated 1697. First draped bust. Rev: with crowned cruciform shields having the arms of Scotland and Ireland transposed from their normal position. Extremely rare (ESC gives this variety an R4 rating - estimated as being '11 to 20' known specimens). In addition, the G of GVLIELMVS is punched over a letter I (see enlarged image) and is apparently unpublished as such. 6.01 grams.

Condition
A bold fine and better, a little weakly struck, with some slight scuffing to surfaces (from being a topsoil find). Some irridescence. Pleasing.

Provenance
A recent detector find.

Literature
S. 3497 (variant); ESC 1091A (R4).

Footnotes
A rarely seen variant coin; we have not been able to find another example offered in recent years and the 'G over I' seems to be unrecorded.

Date
Friday 19th March 2010 at The Swedenborg Hall Antiquities & Coins
