1843 Victoria sovereign narrow shield variety XF45 PCGS
1843 Victoria shield Narrow shield Variety gold sovereign , certified by PCGS XF45
One of the most interesting sovereign varieties , its definetly Narrow shield.
The Reverse die used seemingly in error , had only been used before for an 1839 Pattern sovereign of the highest rarity.
It was perhaps used only briefly in the 1843 production run before been discarded as different as not many sovereigns are extant today with this unusual reverse.
One of the key rarities of the Victorian Sovereigns series that has its own spink catalogue number.
A must buy for a sovereign collector.
