Description Victoria Halfcrown 1878, KM756, S-3889, Young Head, MS64 NGC. A lovely coin with extra-special eye-appeal. as it is fully struck and shows every tiny design detail, with high, sharp rims. The surfaces have reflective, glassy luster,?and are brightly toned in many hues of silvery blue and golden lilac iridescence. Under the color lie a number of tiny abrasions, mainly on the obverse. Overall, an exceptional example of this late date, made in what has often been called the "wretched flan" period, as so many flans were flawed at this time -- but not this one! Realized $1,057.50.
