Description

Victoria (1837-1901), Proof Crown struck in 1893, old head coroneted and veiled left, T.B. below denoting engraver Thomas Brock, legend toothed border both sides, legend surrounds VICTORIA DEI GRA BRITT REGINA FID DEF IND IMP. Rev, Saint George on horseback slaying dragon, date in exergue, B.P. in upper right for Benedetto Pistrucci, edge inscription DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI LVI (S.3937; ESC 304; Bull. 2594; L&S 109).

These Proof types were issued initially as part of the 1893 set, a much collectible and scarce piece in the older bust line. Mottled toning, more so on the reverse, a subtle yet precise strike, the lightest of hairlines, without any nicks or indentations. About uncirculated for the year and issue, a beautiful combination of steel like blue iridescence in the toning. Uncirculated, much as struck, scarce.
