Anne (1702-14), Crown, 1703, VIGO below, first draped bust facing left, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend reads ANNA DEI GRATIA. Rev, pre-union crowned cruciform shields, seven strings to Irish harp, garter star at centre within sunburst, date either side of top crown, legend surrounding MAG BR FRA ET HIB REG, edge inscription +DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI TERTIO (S.3576; ESC.99; Bull 1340).
Archetypal cabinet toning, free from any adjustment marks or metal striations, the faintest of sporadic hairlines and nicks. Portrait first rate with a fully centred strike giving near full coverage of the toothed borders, no weakness in the high points. Reverse equally bold with underlying mint bloom, garter star rays especially well struck. A complete example, bold extremely fine if not uncirculated.
