Great Britain. Pattern Sovereign, 1837. WR-298. DM-200. By William Wyon. Victoria, 1837-1901. "W.W." incuse; tiny roses to sides of date. The reverse shield by Merlen. Plain edge. Smaller young head left. Reverse: Crowned shield within filleted laurel wreath; rose, shamrock and thistle spray below. R6, extremely rare (only 3 to 5 known). The portrait of Victoria, as a young girl, is fairly well frosted, producing a pleasing cameo of the queen. The mirrors show a splendid brilliance, but there are a few tiny scratches in the obverse field and light scuffs on the portrait; the reverse is simply perfect. Finer than the Douglas-Morris plate coin! NGC graded Proof 63 Ultra Cameo.

Struck in the year of Victoria's ascendancy, and one of only a few coins of her reign bearing this date.
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
Ex Dr Jacob Y. Terner Collection.

Realized $25,300
