1283 Crown 1687 TERTIO edge ESC 78, Bull 743 a very pleasing and high grade example with grey and gold toning. Very few James II Crowns available in this high level of preservation. In an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 75, the second finest known of 11 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report £1,800 - £2,800
1293 Crown 1739 Roses ESC 122 EF and nicely toned graded 60 by LCGS and in their holder £1,500 - £2,500
1304 Crown 1887 ESC 296, Bull 2585 A sharply struck example with superb detail and eye appeal, displaying much original mint lustre and blue/green and golden toning, a superior piece, in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82, the joint finest of 117 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report. 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
1306 Crown 1887 Proof ESC 297 PCGS PR65CAM and rare in this choice grade £3,000 - £4,000
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
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
1320 Crown 1928 ESC 368, Bull 3633 a superior example exhibiting much original mint lustre and a subtle and original tone, in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82. Very few Wreath Crowns achieve grades of 80 or higher as many are heavily bagmarked £325 - £375
1326 Crown 1932 ESC 372, Bull 3641 in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82, a well struck example and very scarce in this high grade, The finest known of 15 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report. Only a tiny fraction of the extremely low mintage of 2,395 coins surely remain in this grade. We note an example graded LCGS 80 sold in London Coins Auction A148 1/9/2015 for £1000 hemmer price, this example a full grade higher £600 - £1,000
1331 Crown 1937 Proof ESC 393 nFDC slabbed and graded CGS 88 £100 - £140
1332 Crown 1937 Proof ESC 393, Bull 4021 in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 91, retaining much original mint brilliance and a minimal amount of toning £100 - £200
1353 Farthing 1675 Peck 528 A superb and choice piece in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82. A well struck example on both obverse and reverse undoubtedly contributing to the high grade. The finest known of 5 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report. At the time of writing, 38 examples had been recorded, the next finest Charles II currency Farthing being graded 75, therefore this clearly a superior piece. A true mint state example with excellent detail and surfaces, very few extant in this high grade, would enhance any top quality copper collection, one of a number of high quality slabbed copper Farthings in this sale £1,200 - £1,500
1355 Farthing 1730 Peck 854 in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82, a superb piece with the King's portrait and Britannia sharp and attractive, the finest known of 5 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report. All George II Young Head Farthings very desirable in high grade and are seldom encountered, this piece would enhance any high quality copper collection £325 - £450
1356 Farthing 1773 Obverse 2 Peck 913 in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82, the finest known of 12 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report, A mint state example with traces of original lustre, very hard to find in this high grade, one of a number of high quality slabbed copper Farthings in this sale £220 - £280
1358 Farthing 1773 Obverse 2, with Large 77 in the date Peck 913 variant, LCGS variety 08, a high grade example of the early George III type with traces of mint lustre.

1362 Farthing 1799 Bronzed Proof Peck 1276 with the distinctive line flaw in the obverse field between the G of GRATIA and the Kings forehead. The flaw does not extend to the G. This series of Proofs derived from the currency dies. A pleasing example with dark chocolate toning, in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 80 £125 - £225
1363 Farthing 1806 Copper Proof Peck 1389 KF17, Obverse with Portrait 1 with incuse side whiskers, Reverse with Britannia's hair waved on the top, the olive branch with 7 leaves, all attached, attractively toned and with very light friction, in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 80, Ex-Finchampstead Collection £320 - £380

A choice and superb example of this unusual type, displaying a rich, deep gold and magenta tone, over flashes of mint lustre. A truly beautiful example and would enhance any quality copper collection. In an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 85 £110 - £140
1371 Farthing 1834 Raised Line on Saltire, Reverse B, Peck 1471 Almost fully lustrous, a choice and stunning piece, all William IV copper very difficult to find with original mint lustre, with even high grade examples usually with toning.

1372 Farthing 1835 Raised Line on Saltire, Reverse B, Peck 1473 in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 80, attractively toned with traces of mint lustre, the fields with only minimal contact marks contributing to this high grade.

1373 Farthing 1839 2-pronged Trident, with FID.DEF legend, LCGS Variety 08, a highly lustrous example, an extremely eye-catching piece LCGS 85.

1375 Farthing 1839 Bronzed Proof, Reverse inverted, Peck 1557, by far the rarer of the two die axis alignments, in a PCGS holder and graded PR64 £750 - £1,000
1376 Farthing 1839 FID: DEF. (missing top colon dot), First A in GRATIA unbarred, LCGS variety 10. in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82. A highly lustrous example, the obverse with slightly subdued colour, the reverse with almost full mint lustre. No fewer than 13 varieties of 1839 currency Farthings have been recorded by the LCGS Population Report and of all coins recorded of all the types only one piece has graded higher. Very few Victorian Farthings offered with this much mint lustre, would enhance any quality copper collection £75 - £100
1378 Farthing 1841 both A's unbarred in GRATIA. A choice piece, mint state and with around 75% original lustre. Victorian copper Farthings now seldom seen in highly lustrous state.

1383 Farthing 1848 Peck 1569 in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 80, displaying glossy surfaces and considerable original mint lustre. Very seldom encountered in lustrous condition, this borne out by the LCGS Population statistics, which show this is the finest known of 6 examples thus far recorded, our auction archive stretching back to 2003 shows previously offered high grade examples of this date described as having traces of lustre or toned, therefore probably scarcer than catalogues would suggest in truly lustrous grade £65 - £85
1384 Farthing 1849 as Peck 1570, 4 over lower 4, No stop after date, the B of BRITANNIAR with no serifs, LCGS variety 05, the only example of this die pair thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report.

1393 Farthing 1857 Shamrock with top of stem thin and lower part of stem thick, Peck 1585 variant, LCGS variety 04, the obverse with around 40% lustre, the reverse with around 60% lustre, in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82, the only example of this type recorded by the LCGS Population Report, compare with the 'detached Shamrock' variety also offered in this sale £110 - £140
1394 Farthing 1858 Large Date Peck 1586, A most eye-catching lustrous example, the obverse with around 40% lustre, the reverse with around 80% lustre, in an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 82, the finest known of just 5 examples thus far recorded by the LCGS Population Report £100 - £120

In our experience this coin surprisingly difficult to find in lustrous grades, with most examples being toned. Indeed the PCGS Population Report records only one example in RD designation, and only a further 7 pieces in RB designation £65 - £85
1398 Farthing 1862 Freeman 507 dies 3+B, Small (normal) 8 in date, a superb choice example with practically full blazing lustre. In an LCGS holder and graded LCGS 88, very desirable in this high grade £100 - £120
