GVLIELMVS ET MARIA DEI GRATIA.

Something else in my desk.

 

1. Is this a fake  ? I cannot find anything with the royal couple facing left?

 

2. Obviously no value since is has been made into a broach..   :-(

  • Wow.

    What a shame its a brooch.

    Its a William  & Mary Scottish 40 shillings coin. Beautiful coin. 

    Had it not been a brooch its value would be between  £200- £250 I'd estimate.

    Very Nice Desk find. 

    Kind Regards 

    Stuart. 

  • Thank you, Stuart! I had a feeling that'd be the case.

     

    Can you also tell me, please, why the couple are facing left instead of high as in alls he other images I have seen?

     

    PS I have all sorts of interesting things in my desk - including about 50 odd coins to look through as well :-)

  • Sounds like fun. You keep on posting them I'll do what i can too help.

    The only thing i can think of about them facing left is its because its a Scottish coin. That'd be a guess by the way.

    Best Regards 

    Stuart. 

  • I wondered about that!!! 

     

    My eyes are crying out after the close viewing I had today! Enough for now. 

     

    Thanks again for your time.

     

    Buonanotte!!!

  • Your welcome. 

    Glad to have assisted. 

    Bye.

    Stuart. 

  • Thanks, Stuart for your expertise. I agree: Scotland. This one sold for $325 in a recent auction.

     

  • Thank you, Stuart and Paul!! 

     

    Such a pity mine has been devalued. I understand that making a brooch was a sign of allegiance.

     

    I'll make further enquiries re possible sale
