Auction: 20005 - The Stratos Sale of Spectacular English Gold Coins
Anne (1702-1714), Pre-Union, Five-Guineas, 1705
Stack's Bowers Galleries (& Ponterio), Sale 164 (New York), 6 January 2012, lot 703
NGC MS62+ 'Proof Like' (Certification #5878605-001)
It is interesting to note that at the time of the Whetmore dispersal (Glendining, 24-25 March 1943), the 1705 Five-Guineas was thought of as a Proof striking (lot 3), elevating above the renowned 1703 VIGO issue (lot 4). With an example such as the present brilliant specimen, it is easy to see why.
