The first of all the Georges

2 early and creamy shillings from 300 years ago.




George I shilling from 1720! The year of the SSC bubble bursting and Wigstock "20", throwin down the curl!



1723 shilling with none other than SSC

It seemed nearly bankrupting Britain in 1720 did not stop the South Sea Company, they could still provide silver for coins years later and the wooden wig stands handed out to all participants in Wigstock "23" - The return of Peruke!

Mad Hatter brand mercury was being sold at only 2d a can.

I love COINS!!!

Moving on to George the younger, the quality of my pieces improves slightly.




My 1739 shilling has the younger head of King George II with flowing wig and the roses signifying west of England silver was provided.




My 1745 Lima piece is better still and has the old portrait which is quite different besides inserting laugh lines, George has opted for a curlier wig than ever and its shortening a bit as the John Wesley/Samuel Johnson, haloed, perm wig look became all the rage from the Brian May specials around 1735 - 1740.



Finally in 1758 the same portrait was kept (The halo perm was fading out of fashion and the skull cap Captain Cook style wig was all the rage - the peruke (Used today still by barristers).

King was 75 and probably could not care about what today's young Macaronis were wearing on their heads. Seriously most 1758s will be more beat up than this as apart from 1787 it was the last shilling until 1816.

I love COINS!!!
