British Collection, SINCONA 75, lot 229, 16th May 2022. #2124450-006 NGC Census in this grade: 1. NGC Census in higher grade: 2 Total NGC Census: 4. The Coin Guineas of George II are rare.It is an extremely challenging series to collect in any grade and a collection of high-grade examples is seldom seen due to the prohibitive nature of the coins' rarities. Any example of the series in high grade, for example MS61, let alone a rarer year such as 1756, is worthy of note and attention. The coin featured here is not only high grade, but also free of surface issues and any'eye-sore' marks or scratches, rendering this rare example a top-class and hugely attractive guinea of George II. The collection is one of the most complete and important collections of British coinage ever to exist. Independent research on our part has been successful in reuniting some of these significant pieces with their history. Select the reason for the return.
