Description

Victoria (1837-1901), Halfcrown, 1845, Type A4, young head left with two plain fillets in hair, plain truncation, legend reads VICTORIA DEI GRATIA, date below. Rev, crowned square topped quartered shield of arms within wreath, thistle, rose and shamrock spray emblems below, legend surrounds BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID DEF (S.3888; Bull.2722; ESC.679; Davies 568).

Dusky lustrous toning with underlying mint brilliance. On closer inspection an accomplished example, comprehensive definition and clarity in the Queens portrait, especially the hair, few trivial unobtrusive nicks, bagmarks and hairlines synonymous with the type. Legends legible both sides, the 8 in the date line with some ghosting. Reverse, much as struck, small die flaw to the right side of crown above shield. Near uncirculated.
