1887 half crown proof ? #3

4 posts in this topic

Hi coinman 

have you seen pictures of them all? Two have now been sold the one in this post I still own as well as the one headed 1887 #4.


What is your opinion in regards to the overal finish too. In general it seems much more whiter and slightly frosted compared to a other half crowns I have seen. Especially older ones as there not many years that produced a proof variant. I have other 1887 half crowns that just don’t seem to have the same finish at all. 


Thanyou for pointing out the raised knife edge rims. This is something I have completely over looked until you mentioned it. Now I can clearly see this. 


Cheers Des
