The rarest Anne five guineas after the 1703 VIGO issue. Superb deep copper toning, lustrous prooflike surfaces and exceptional eye appeal. We believe this piece is the equal of an NGC AU58 example of the date realized $216,000 including the 20% Buyer’s Premium at public auction in January, 2018 (Classical Numismatic Group, Triton XXI, 9 January 2018, lot number 1504). Ex. Dr. Nelson Page Aspen Collection, Bowers and Merena, August 9-12th, 1989, Lot 2413. Includes original collector’s ticket. $145,000.
11 Piece 1826 George IV Proof Set
1051835: Great Britain. George IV. 1826 AV, AR, and Bronzed Copper 11-Piece Proof Set. PCGS PR63-PR65DCAM (Deep Cameo).

A PCGS PR63 DCAM 1826 Five Pounds (without the full set) realized $228,000 including the Buyer’s Premium at public auction in January, 2018. A superb set and extremely rare in this quality. Includes later (20th Century) leather and velvet case by Spink & Son. $239,000.
Possibly Unique Gothic Crown Uniface Trial in Fine Silver
1051400: Great Britain. Victoria. (Queen, 1837-1901). 1846-1847 (ND) AR Uniface Trial Strike Gothic Crown. NGC MS65. Edge: Plain. 33mm. 22.24gm. Bust, left / Blank. LS-67 Variant in Silver.
An exceedingly rare and almost certainly unique trial for the Gothic Crown. This piece is struck in sterling silver (.9614) and unlisted as such; Linecar and Stone notes a “Trial of Puncheon” in white metal as L&S-67 that sold in the Lingford sale (1950, lot 587) for £4 16s. and was described there as “Extremely fine and probably UNIQUE.” The portrait on this trial is of finer style and higher relief than the regular issue, with signficantly more detail on the crown, hair and bodice. In our opinion this was more likely struck in 1846 than 1847 or 1853, as it seems to be the prototype rather than the final design, likely engraved in more shallow relief to extend die life. Beautifully toned gem. $45,000.
