Description Victoria Halfcrown 1886, KM756, S-3889, Young Head, MS65 NGC. An especially fine example of this late date that is fully struck and shows all of the tiny details of the portrait and royal shield. What is special is the booming reflective luster,?and the surfaces are sheathed in a natural, bright silvery white and pale amber-gold, smooth mixture of iridescence. Victoria's Young Head halfcrowns are all in strong demand worldwide, and only seldom does such a pleasing 1886 example appear. Realized $1,351.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
