Charles II, 1660-1685, Gold Pattern Broad, 1662
KM-Pn-32, North-2780, 9.06 grams, 29mm. Tower mint, laureate cuirassed and draped bust of Charles II facing left, around, CAR .II.D.G.M.BR.FR.ET.HI.REX; small S tilted below bust, reverse: crowned square shield with the arms of England and France in 1st and 4th, Scotland and Ireland in 2nd and 3rd quarters, FLORENT CONCORDIA REGNA 1662, date divided by crown, plain edge. The small "S" below the bust is for Thomas Simon, the celebrated engraver of the famous Petition Crown. Rare. Modestly circulated with a lovely portrait and traces of reddish-gold luster remaining. Struck from a concave reverse die, producing somewhat "diminished" luster on reverse, as well as some central weakness; a small indentation is noted at the right of the shield. An exceptional grade for this type. Not listed by Wilson & Rasmussen, but actually one of the few suggested designs for England's first golden guinea. Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated
