I wanted to post an update on the 1713 Gold Guinea that I wrote about in a previous article. It came back from NGC graded as MS64+ with the Stanislaw Herstal pedigree on the label.
According to NGC there’s none graded finer so this is the finest known; it appears PCGS has graded another example at MS64 but have no other information on that particular coin other than PCGS’s population report.
The coin is currently at Stacks & Bowers and will be auctioned off in August at the ANA Money Show. Estimated value has yet to be determined.
