|This 1874 Great Britain Queen Victoria Shilling Die #38 has been graded MS66 by PCGS and is encapsulated in one of the newer-style edge-view holders. This piece has nice original luster on both sides and medium golden toning on both sides, which is slightly deeper on the reverse side. The coin is also very well struck and shows fairly strong clash marks, particularly on the upper part of the obverse. There are also few die cracks on the piece which appear interesting. A small grouping of minor scratches above the crown on the reverse and a few other very minor hits scattered about prevent an even higher grade. The coin is marked “38” just above the date on the reverse, indicating the die which was used to strike the coin. Overall, a very nice example of the Victoria Shilling.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin with maximum detail.
