George II 1746 Maundy Set, young head

George II (1727-60), silver Maundy Set, 1746, Fourpence, Threepence with overdate 6/3, Twopence, Penny with overdate 6/5/3, young laureate and draped bust left, Latin legend and toothed border surrounding both sides, GEORGIVS. II. DEI. GRATIA., rev. crowned mark of value, date either side of crown, legend commences upper right .MAG. BRI. FR ET. HIB. REX. (Bull 1773; ESC 2410; Robinson 219i, 220, 221i, 222; S.3716). Toned, Twopence very fine, others good very fine to extremely fine.

The 1746 Fourpence may also have an overdate with 6 possibly over 5.

Curiously the obverse depiction of George II continues with a young head design throughout the reign, a similar parallel to todays maundy coinage which still carries the young Mary Gillick portrait. The George II otherwise swapped to an older depiction of George from 1743 onwards for the silver and gold coins.
