||Victoria Pattern Gothic Florin 1848, KM745, S-3890, ESC-886 (R2), plain edge, PR64 NGC. A visually stunning example of the "Godless" design adopted for currency use in 1849, as all of the tiny details of the intricate engraving are as sharp as can be. The fields are reflective with proof or mirror luster, and although the obverse color is a bit dappled, the reverse is superb and blessed with exquisite magenta-blue iridescence. A really lovely pattern.
