This specimen was lot 3818 in Goldberg sale 85 (Los Angeles, June 2015), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted, "Great Britain. Shilling, 1720. George I. Angles plain. Attractively and deeply toned mint state. The shillings of George I (except perhaps for the 1723 SSC issue) are rarely now seen in true mint state and even with a current catalogue value of £600 (around $900) in XF (unpriced in Uncirculated) they are pretty certainly underpriced for their rarity. NGC graded MS-63." This shilling was struck in some numbers 1720-21 along with a variety with roses and plumes on the reverse (KM 539.1).

Recorded mintage: unknown but available.

Specification: 6.02 g, .925 fine silver, .179 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: S.3646; ESC-1168; KM-539.2.
