LINCOLNSHIRE, United Kingdom
This is another superb lustrous uncirculated silver Gothic florin or two shillings dated 1881 from the reign of Queen Victoria of Great Britain - a rarely seen date in such a high grade. This coin looks very much like the broken puncheon variety which has not been picked up by NGC.
Bright prooflike coin from a Heritage auction.
I have had it pointed out to me that an MS61 grade is not the equivalent of BU - however many of my buyers prefer NGC graded coins and know fully what to expect. If I describe a coin as BU then that is how the vast majority of British coin dealers in my experience would describe the coin. It should be noted that many eBay sellers describe their coins as " high grade" or "collectable" but fight shy of attributing specific grades to their coins. I know that grading can be a very subjective matter but I think my feedback record speaks for the quality of the coins that I offer. I also try to describe the coins as fully as I can as grades and pictures alone are not always enough. Amen!
Graded MS61 and slabbed by NGC, one of the world's 2 leading numismatic grading services, this is a guarantee that the coin is genuine and has been graded accurately and professionally. The solid plastic capsule is individually numbered so that the coin details can be verified on a central database and it is tamperproof. In addition, the coin is protected from handling which can be detrimental to the coin's condition and value.
These are some of the
reasons why such coins are highly marketable, especially in the USA where values are steadily rising in the face
of counterfeits originating from the Far East.
Coin Year Book states the following values :
Mintage 2,570,337 .
Please pay promptly and I will post promptly, usually the next day if payment is received by 9pm. I do not like E-cheques and I am not very happy when I do not receive payment within 48 hours - unless I hear beforehand why payment is delayed, I reserve the right to block slow payers from bidding in the future.
If you are satisfied with your
item please leave the appropriate feedback, following receipt of which I shall
be pleased to do likewise, as soon as I get a few spare minutes. I always wait for you to leave your feedback first.
