||Victoria Double Florin 1888, KM763, S-3923, Jubilee Head, MS65 NGC. Exceptionally choice and fully original, this boldly struck 4/- (or 4 shillings) is one of the best ever seen by this cataloguer. Its cartwheel luster and almost mark-free surfaces are enhanced by beautiful, deeply set, golden bluish-gray iridescent toning. A type that is hard to find in MS64, it is almost never seen in this splendid grade and condition. Sold with a source envelope from L.S. Forrer Ltd., 175 Piccadilly, London, W.1. A rare treat.
Realized $763.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
