Great Britain (London, England), gold half guinea, George II, 1759, NGC UNC details / damaged / HMS Ramillies (Shipwreck Label). Sp-3685; KM-587. Lustrous and fully detailed despite minor nicks and gouges from its time under the waves, rare provenance, the wreck sunk due to navigational error off the Devon coast after an illustrious career in wars throughout the late 1600s (under its original name of Royal Katherine) and early 1700s, among several captures and rebuilds. NGC #6448447-001. With Sedwick photo-certificate. From: HMS Ramillies, sunk in 1760 off Devon, England
