Many of the Jubilee Head Crowns suffer from excessive contact marks due to the large fields, thus lowering the grade. Indeed the Population Report at the time of writing recorded only 2 examples in grade 82, and only a further 6 in grade 80, showing that these are very difficult to find in the choicest grades £250 - £350

1310 Crown 1893 LVI ESC 303, Bull 2593, Davies 501 as dies 1A, the T.B initials below the bust showing signs of die wear in parts, no doubt leading to the 'I.L initials' sub-variety recorded by Peter Davies, EF with old grey tone enhanced by touches of blue/green in parts (see London Coins Auction A150 Lot 1936 and London Coins Auction A154 Lot 1799 for comparable examples of this scarce type) £240 - £280
1311 Crown 1893 LVI ESC 303, Bull 2593, Davies 501 dies 1A, A choice example with original mint lustre offset by hints of subtle golden tone, a superior example with only a very few contact marks, on an issue where usually the fields show many imperfections. The reverse shows superb detail on the George and the Dragon design. Would make a truly superb type coin. In an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 85, the joint finest known of 31 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report. At the time of writing 220 Victorian currency Veiled Head Crowns of all dates had been graded, only 3 have graded LCGS 85 £450 - £550
1312 Crown 1893 LVI Proof ESC 304, Bull 2594, Davies 505 dies 2A T of VICTORIA points between two rim teeth, UNC with some light hairlines, displaying a pleasing and colourful tone over considerable mint brilliance £2,000 - £2,500

1317 Crown 1900 LXIII ESC 318, Bull 2608, Davies 533 dies 3E, a sharply struck and crisp example of the Veiled Head type, lustrous with golden tone and touches of blue. A choice piece and a superior example of this scarcer edge type, with outstanding eye appeal, in an LCGS holder and well deserving of the LCGS 82 grade. The finest known of just 3 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report £375 - £500
1318 Crown 1927 Proof ESC 367 UNC and lustrous with a spot by the date £95 - £140
1319 Crown 1928 ESC 368 NVF cleaned £55 - £90
