Great Britain 1707-E crown
This specimen was lot 33025 in Heritage sale 3064 (Chicago, April 2018), where it sold for $360. The catalog description noted, "Anne Crown 1707-E VF35 NGC, Edinburgh mint. A fairly well-struck example for the grade, especially since Anne's coinage typically comes quite worn, this pleasing crown was produced shortly after the Act of Union in 1707 united Scotland and England. Though adjustment marks are clearly present, particular across Anne's bust, they are more than made up for by an extremely pleasant and unexpected champagne and sky-blue iridescence on the reverse when exposed to the proper light. From the Jamestown Collection." The Edinburgh mint was closed soon after the Act of Union joined Scotland to England, but not before this crown was minted.
