Description

Victoria (1837-1901), Sovereign, 1841, first young head left, date below, W.W. on truncation for the engraver William Wyon, toothed outer borders both sides, unbarred A’s in gratia, legend surrounds VICTORIA DEI GRΛTIΛ. Rev, crowned flat topped quartered shield of arms within laurel, emblems in the form of thistle, rose and shamrock below, reads BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID DEF (S.3852; Bentley 970; Marsh 24A R3; MCE 501). 7.99g.

A choice specimen displaying excellent detail throughout, especially so in the Queen’s hair, normally the first area to show distortion or fade. Slightly smoothed underneath the eye, otherwise showing minimal surface markings. Almost mint state, retaining much of its original mint bloom and lustre, extremely rare irrespective of grade.
