Auction 162
English Coins 1877 Narrow date, Freeman 90 dies 8+H (Rarity 18) one of the rarest and most sought after currency types in the entire Bun Penny series, almost always encountered in low grade, this example around Fine, and considerably superior to the example sold in London Coins Auction A129 (Lot 2034) graded LCGS 20 which realised £7020 inclusive of buyers premium. The variety beyond dispute and this example quite possibly one of the finest examples in existence, we note we have handled only 5 other examples since 2003, we also note this is superior to the example in the Laurie Bamford sold in 2006 described as 'Fair', hence a rare opporty for the advanced collector of the key varieties in this series

English Coins 1887 Jubilee Head , with the obverse displaying 14 Beads to Queen’s necklace rather than 13 on the standard currency and Proof coin. J.E.B. initials fully on the truncation, on the standard Proof issue they encroach slightly into the field. On the 14 bead coin there is a smaller gap between the A in VICTORIA and the following D of D:G: .This obverse as Baldwin's Bentley sale 8/5/2013 Lot 1228. Reverse: The P of the B.P. initials is poorly rendered, appearing more like a triangle. There are also no stops in between. The top line of the streamer on the helmet makes a smooth curve onto the next line down, whereas on the standard Proof it is distinctly separate. The 7 of the date has an extra piece protruding from the right of the horizontal stroke. The Reverse characteristics are similar to a reverse uniface Proof in the Museum, and had previously not been recorded before on a Proof or currency piece. UNC with prooflike fields, the design and legend heavily frosted. This reverse is as the Royal Mint uniface piece. Both obverse and reverse dies types are known, but until now, not on the same coin, and the existence of this piece links together the two previously known types. Comes with a comprehensive folder full of interesting data and research relating to this piece and the other pieces bearing the obverse and reverse die types and their developments and origins, along with many useful and important photographs. Also with authentication from Robert Matthews(ex Royal Mint and a recognised expert in authentication). Slabbed and graded CGS 75, a unique opporty to acquire this important and unique piece
