Great Britain

445. Clump of four British silver coins: One crown, one halfcrown and two sixpences. 57 grams. Beautiful clump with vivid orange encrustation around the coins, which are arranged in two offset stacks and have been judiciously cleaned to expose just enough details to show that the crown is Charles II, the halfcrown is William III, the two sixpences with partial dates, minimal corrosion. Estimate: $300 - $450

Multiple mints

448. Clump of two coins: Lima, Peru, cob 8 reales 1685 and Great Britain half crown of William III. 44 grams. Just a twocoin stack, but with lots of impacted dark-brown mud between the coins and rare as a mix of two totally different coins, both of them in rather decent condition, the 8 reales in fact with bold date and assayer (rather valuable in its own right), a small but interesting display. Estimate: $350 - $525

Estimate: $75 - $110

Thick and solid with surface corrosion only, bold full shield, full but weak cross, well centered, no toning, one of the nicer specimens from this tough wreck.
