Object Description

James II (1685-88), Crown, 1687, second laureate and draped bust left, toothed borders both sides, legend surrounds IACOBVS II DEI GRATIA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, garter star at centre, date flanking top crown, six strings to Irish harp, reads MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX, edge inscribed +DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI TERTIO (S.3407; ESC.78; Bull 743).

Light golden toning with some traces of mint lustre, haymarking both sides synonymous with the type. A well struck up portrait with some definition to the hair above the forehead, the known weak area on this type. Reverse, equally pleasing, a very slight nick to the right of the top Crown, free of adjustment marks; clear legends and toothed borders. Extremely fine, for what in more
cases than others is a weakly struck issue.
