Great Britain. Proof Crown, 1839. S-3882; ESC-279; KM-741. Victoria, 1837-1901. Young Head left; plain edge, the queen's hair bound with Greek-style ribbons. Reverse: Crowned shield within filleted laurel wreath; rose, shamrock and thistle spray below. As issued in sets, and a beautiful example indeed: deep purplish, blue and gold iridescent toning, glittering mirror fields, with subtle but pleasant frosted portrait. Very choice, with only very trivial "cabinet friction" evidenced by a few bright spots in the dark toning. Very rare as only about 300 were minted, and few have survived this fine. NGC graded Proof 64.
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,500.
Ex Cheshire Collection (5/30 - 6/1/05), lot 2718.

Realized $19,550
